For those of us who love to write our names in books, or to write special messages on the inside covers when gifting, this set is the perfect way to add an extra special touch. Do you know a bibliophile who would love this stamp kit?

Love this! I've been looking for a book stamp set for ages.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Nicely done and made in the USA.

I've seen name stamps before. I wouldn't use one on a book as I finish reading it and share with a friend - who passes it on. When I donate to the library no one needs to know who had it first.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Just seems a bit irrelevant now a days with kindles and such.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Most books I'll donate or give to friends, so I wouldn't want to write in them. For the few I would write in, I wouldn't need this kit. I love the design though!

Vote: Thumbs up!

I hate the idea of writing in books but I really need to identify my books as mine... this stamp would make it feel a lot less like scribbling and a lot more like scribing!


Great for classroom libraries and book fairs.

Irrelevant in the digital world and for those who still appreciate writing a personal note like me, I don't think a stamp is required.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Very nice design all the way around. I love that it comes as a set, including a pencil.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I have a Kindle but I still have my favorite books I buy in paper and want to keep forever. Love this!

To me, the purpose of putting your name in a book would be to get it returned to you -- I can use my regular name stamp for that, AND it's personalized so I don't have to write on it.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I really like this little stamp. I have several ereaders, wouldn't want to be without them, but physical books still have relevance - and this is so darned cute!

Vote: Thumbs up!

Too cute and useful. Love this item! Especially for those of us who still love a "real" paper book.

Vote: Thumbs up!

more variety...I think it is a great idea...how about blue or black or red and less graphics -- too much color

Vote: Thumbs up!

What's the price?

Vote: Thumbs up!

You should make a stamped business card template, with space for a name and phone or email. Or a "made by" stamp. I know those have been done, but I like the design of this one.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I give a lot of books as presents. i would love to have something like this to share.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Not into stamps

Vote: Thumbs up!

I love this! And it's made in America!

Vote: Thumbs up!

Great for birthday books donated to the classroom. BIRTHDAY STUDENT DONATES A BOOK TO THE CLASS AND PUTS THEIR NAME IN IT.

Vote: Thumbs up!

This looks perfect for starting a library for any kid.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I love this! As a stamper, book lover and stationery lover, this is so perfect!!

Vote: Thumbs down!

Books will be sold electronically more and more. The stamp is obsolete!!

Vote: Thumbs up!

I like it, but it would really depend on the price. This is a fun little gift for an avid book reader, not something I would invest more than $15 in.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I see a lot of comments saying this is useless because of Kindles and ebooks. Some of us will never give up being able to hold an honest to God book and this is for us!

Vote: Thumbs up!

I love buying used books and seeing the inscriptions of former owners. I wouldn't mind passing on a few of my own with this charming stamp.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Great idea for a book loving young person. My library was (and is) my favorite set of possessions.

Vote: Thumbs down!

cute but sorta blah

Vote: Thumbs up!

Great gift idea and Made in SFO, yeah!

Vote: Thumbs up!

I do like this, but I am not sure why the green color was chosen. That seems like an odd choice - I guess that makes it uncommon!

Vote: Thumbs up!

Books are still to be treasured

Vote: Thumbs up!

Made in U.S.A, it would make a nice gift, and I would buy it for myself as well.

I think this is great for kids.
