There has been a lot of heated conversations lately over the ever-growing infestation of knock off craft supplies. Typically, when someone mentions knock offs in the crafting industry, most people immediately gravitate toward the MISTI copycats and the blatant patent infringements some companies thought were ok to violate to make a quick buck. Foolishness, my friends, foolishness.

However, stamping tools are not the only ones being raped by creatives in the industry. Stamps, dies and other intellectual property are being stolen, brand names are being stripped from packaging and products are being sold at murderous rates.

For those of you who would like to know how to avoid or spot a scam, this podcast is going to help you identify the offending stamps and respond when you THINK a company is out of line.
