Review: WRMK Precision Press Tool & video

My Precision Press tool is here!!!

I just got my shipment from HSN!!!  
I was supposed to wait until Christmas, but got concerned after reading people's reviews so I opened it and checked it out. 


So much that I decided to create a blog post 
& a video showing you how it works. 


I added a stamping video (link above)
where I compared stamping the same image using:  
(1) a regular acrylic block 
(2) stamping with my new WRMK Precision Press 
(3) using my homemade FrankenMisti-like stamping tool
I added photos as well on the Stamping section of this post..keep reading!

My observations:
  • I love it & will use it all the time!
  • There is a learning curve with this product, it varies on how wet your ink pad is and how much pressure you apply. So practice, practice, practice, play, play, play, and you will be fine. 
  • Rulers: There are rulers everywhere. On the acrylic and on the surface/platform once you open the machine - marked at every 1/8". Here a picture of the grooves and the rulers, both in English and metric systems. The numbers inside the platform are carved in, and if you have tired eyes it might be hard to see.  I might add some ink to make them stand out a bit. Not necessary at the moment.

  • THE SURFACE: Paper does stay put pretty good - which I could't believe from the HSN video :) 
    • AFTER STAMPING: Sometimes it came back up after stamping, but no big deal (it actually lifted in my video, so you can see it).  
    • As a test (not on my video) I also added a thin magnetic sheet to mine to see if that would work better, it did. Not enough of a problem to warrant it in my opinion.
  • STAMPING: The groves make no difference to the quality of the stamping, I actually thought it would. I even tried a stamp of a thin line right on the grooves and it stamped perfectly. I also stamped a solid stamp and it worked great. Here is a comparison between the three techniques. Photo 2 is from the video mentioned above.

 2nd try: On video

  • STAMP SIZES:  The largest size stamp you can use is 7" x 7", which is the size of the platform. Paper can be as larger as you want. 
I especially loved that I can use my 6" x 6" background stamps, which I have never been able to use properly!!!  
I always had a hard time stamping them even upside down, like Kristina Werner does :)
 Not sure why!  
So this was a HUGE selling point for me.

Why I got it: Background stamps!

  • TYPE of STAMPS:  ANY!!! You can use thin photopolymer & the thick rubber stamps with foam or cling  (like the Stampin up ones).  There is no need to add or take away anything on the machine, because the hinges accommodate the thickness of the stamp!!! GENIUS!! I think the WRMK people have been in business for a while now and know what they are doing!! Here a picture of the hinges..the go up and down based on the thickness of your stamp!
  hinges, 9 in total!

Other info you might want to know about the 

I love the size of the tool 7" x 7", but more importantly the bottom and left sides are not obstructed so your paper can be longer than 7".  Check out the video! This is not the case in other, similar stamping tools.

The back has 4 rubber feet.


Rubber stopper on left corner & a place to slide your finger in when you have a paper in there.


If you are a perfect stamper, who NEVER makes a stamping mistake...NO, you don't need this tool. 
Save your pennies and get more stamps!

If you mess up from time to time...get it!!!
you like your images to be a bit darker...get it!!!
If you can't stamp in a straight line to save your soul...get it!!! (This is me by the way!)

My Precision Press bundle came with 5 multi-step stamps 
& 6 ink cubes.  Pictures are included below. BTW: This bundle sold out before the October Craft day ended at HSN. 


I hope my review was useful to you and if you are still thinking about it, don't! 
JUST Get it, try it out for yourself. 
Learn to use it and practice!!!
If you don't like it, return it!

Opinions expressed here are my own. 
I paid for my Precision Tool in full, 
& I am not getting paid for this review. 
My review was honest and from the heart.

If you disagree with my opinion, do so respectfully.
If you have hurtful, derogatory comments leave them on your own blog, not here!

Going to play some more now :)


  1. Great review! I am going to pre order one for sure. (:

  2. Thanks so much for sharing...I odered this too from HSN on their 24 Craft Day. ..Can't wait to get mine. I love We R Memory Keepers tools. And love their super bundles on Hsn. The prices are great and affordable too. Enjoyed your video and honest view.

  5. Great review and I now own one. LOVE it! Don't know how I managed without it, LOL. Thank you.

  6. Like I said on your video, brilliant review. I loved my Letterpress tool until I cracked it and it's really big so I like that this is smaller. The hinges on the Letterpress were brilliant as they moved with the size of the stamp. I have a mini MISTI but I can't use it for background stamps and I am rubbish at using them upside down too. Plus it's horrendously expensive. My birthday is next month and I think this will go on the list if it's available in the U.K. then. I love WRMK products. They are brilliant. Thank you so much! Xx

  7. I got mine today! Love it. Great value, I got everything in the package, exactly as shown in your post. It was late getting here as HSN had a shipping snag at a new facility. But they have fixed that and it is here now. yeah

  8. Thanks for this i'm torn between this and the misti (so expensive) but my worry is putting smaller pieces of paper in, will it stay put......

    1. Ali....(I don't have this yet...have the Misti) but honey, you can always use a piece of washi tape if the WR doesn't have space between the lid and base required for magnets....or does not have a magnetic base. What makes papercrafters papercrafters is I'm sure you will be creative finding an easy solution.

  9. Hallo ik zou hem heel. Graag willen hebben.
    Maar ik wil graag weten wat me dat gaat kosten naar Nederland met verzendkosten
    Ik hoop snel iets van je te horen met vriendelijke groeten Ingrid Baak

  11. I got this as a Christmas gift and I'm having trouble with my stamp staying adhered to the top. Every time I turn the top over to place my stamp on the paper it would fall off! What am I doing wrong?!

    1. Hi Beth, Sometimes when the stamps fall off blocks its because they have lost their sticky and they are dirty. You can clean them with regular dish soap and water to restore the sticky. Good luck!!

  12. I ordered this from HSN on impulse in January, and wasn't sure from their video if it would work with unmounted rubber. Thanks for the info. I'm away for the winter and won't get to play with mine until I get home in April when it will be too late to return it, so I feel better about it now. Thanks so much!
