I have seen some people that have different sig stamps and have been curious myself. I have one that I use 95% of the time and a smaller identical one for small books like hitchhikers and micros.

I can kind of understand in that I am itching to create a new sig stamp, but I also do not want to confuse people and maintain a consistent presence.

I've had the same image for the last 8 1/2 years. Its just gotten better as my skill level increased, plus has reduced in size a few times. Still keep a bigger one, but rarely use it. The mini is the normal one I carry with me. About 1" square. Less space taken for the logbooks I stamp up in.

My first one was a red hot mess. My second one was just my name in letters. I though, Im an artist, what am I doing?! So the main one I use now was born. Pretty big stamp.
I made a siggy stamp for HHs that is the size of a penny. It worn down quick. Wrong carving stuff. Then I made a siggy stamp small enough that i can fit three images of it on a penny. I use that for anytime I cant fit my big siggy. The main thing is mine has to have a cross and a crescent :)

Does anyone out there use more than one signature stamp?

Yes. I have my regular sig stamp, but I also have the following:

  • An old one that I keep in my car for letterboxing emergencies
  • A small one that I use when I'm stamping in white on LTCs
  • A small one that I use when I'm stamping in black on LTCs and can't fit my regular sig stamp
  • A zombified version of my sig stamp that I use in October

We currently have at least six.

1) Our main signature stamp.
2) A smaller version of our main stamp you can see in my profile.
3) A very small version used for small logbooks (cooties and HHs.
4) A Christmas themed stamp.
5) A Halloween themed stamp.
6) A winter themed stamp.

Plus more seasonal stamps to come as soon as I can think of something creative.

We have several too. I carry around our original store bought ones because they are tiny and good for small log books. Then we have our normal one w/ where we are from. The kids all have their own but we only use them if the logbook is big or for exchanges. And we have the small one just for LTCs.

Yes!!!!! Use as many or as few as you want! You are unique, and so should be your siggie stamps.

I have 3 that I use. Large, with my name and town on it, small with no name or town, and tiny, which I use on inchies or on hitchhikers.

I'm ready to create a whole new stamp, with my name in it, that feels more "me".

I have one.

I will continue to use it until the rest of it falls apart (and maybe longer).

It was actually a PT that I made for this event. It was so much fun to see how everyone zombified their sig stamps!

I used to. When I first started I had, what I ended up finding out to be, a bit too large of a siggy. I then carved another, and grew tired of it quickly. Then another that just wasn't very fitting. But I haven't used more than one at a time. I have seen plenty of people use different ones for different things through LTC trading and postals. They will use a larger stamp in the postals, and a smaller stamp on their LTCs.

I currently have 5 or 6 that I use depending on the season and the size of the logbook I'm stamping into... oh yeah - and if I'm with Teacup - I'm banned from using my newest one : )

I think you and I would define "letterboxing emergencies" differently.

Mine involves dialing 911... :)

If you zombify a zombie, does that bring it back to life completely?

It depends, was it a halfway zombie?

If you zombify a halfway zombie, does it become a 1.5-way zombie?

Letterboxing emergency:

1. You're miles from home and get a sudden insight that lets you solve a nearby mystery.

2. You meet someone who turns out to be a letterboxer and you want to do an exchange.

3. Your daughter/husband tell you "no letterboxing today!" before you go somewhere with them but then say "oh, just kidding--go ahead and find a box."

Not that I've ever run into any of these situations or anything...

See, my own personal dictionary says this:

Letterboxing emergency:

1. While letterboxing, you're bleeding from your leg/arm/head/otherbodypart. Profusely.

2. While letterboxing, you've twisted/broken/otherwise damaged your ankle/knee/hip and can no longer walk.

3. While letterboxing, you require medical attention AND your cellphone is dead.

4. Any of these things happen to your boxing companion(s)

But perhaps that is because my letterboxing bag is ALWAYS in my vehicle. :)

I know someone who had it stolen out of their vehicle so you might want to consider it like you would any other 'valuables'; if it is irreplaceable, don't leave it in the car.

I tried keeping my letterboxing backpack in my car, but since I was always adding/removing things from it, it's much easier to keep it in my office instead. Hence the emergency kit!

Ack! Noooooo!

Of course, I frequently forget and leave my GPS in my car, too...

I personally have one for all the major holiday, and several just because!
like the Chirstmas Corn, Undead Cruzsader (Zombie), My new Leia Corn (Star wars unicorn for May) and a H2O Corn for water boxes.

Some with wings, all with horns
I can't resist carving a Unicorn - lol
