We recently had the pleasure of working with Guard Your ID and reviewing their stamps. We receive a lot of mail with our personal information that we no longer need and want to get rid of. Being as though our shredder broke, these stamps were a great alternative to concealing that information. Identity theft is a serious reality that we don’t want to risk happening so taking every precaution to keep our personal information safe is key.
Benefits of using the stamps include:
- Stamped documents are easy to recycle.
- Stamping creates less mess and less noise.
- Stamping is safe for children. Shredders can be dangerous.
- Stamping doesn’t require the space or electricity that a shredder does.
The stamps are easy to use and are just the right size to fit on my office desk or place in a drawer. Whenever I want them, I can just grab and stamp the information that needs to be concealed. The stamps also come in some pretty neat colors that can match your personal style. Each one can be used for a different stamping job depending on how much information is needed to be concealed. For instance, the roller stamp can be used to roll over a larger area (usually addresses and junk mail) and the camouflage tape can be used to mask lines of text. I really like both of these stamps because not only will you be able to protect your important information, but you’ll also be using a safer alternative to shredding.
When you’re not using your stamp, the ink is protected by a guard. The roller has a piece that shields the ink when it’s not in use and the tip of the camouflage tape can be retracted. Our small stamp also has a cover that you can place it on so you don’t damage any surfaces when it’s not being used. Ink can be easily replaced in each product so there is no need to buy another stamp unless you want to. Overall, I am very happy with Guard Your ID stamps and their effectiveness.
Some things to keep in mind when using these stamps: These three products will work on non-glossy surfaces and may not conceal all data completely. However, Guard Your ID does have a few versions that are specially formatted for glossy paper and work very well on medicine bottles.
