There’s never been a better time!
Hello helloooo! Grace here.
Day 2 of our 50% off PERGAMANO PARTY!
Are we having fun? It seems like it! What a huge day Monday was!
Just so you know… I’m on both the Pergamano site AND the Claritystamp site chat system from about 8am EST (that’s about 1pm onwards in the UK) if you need any help with anything!
If you need help before then, give Jeannine a call in the office (01732 868215). And don’t forget, you can always email me (email@example.com). The general Clarity email will be a bit backed up this week, so you’re likely to get through to me faster, if you need quicker help.
Yesterday was SO busy! Giveaways, samples, blogs, artwork… and 50% off on Pergamano.com?! WOW. I’m sure today will be the same.
I wanted to focus in on any new customers and friends we have! Because half price off is an epic deal.
I can tell you that it’s NEVER been so well priced. Ever.
There’s really never been a better time to join us or start your parchment craft journey (or get someone you know involved… Christmas is liiiiterally around the corner! *wink wink*)!
Now, why should you join us? Let’s have a think out loud!
We have one heck of a community to join! You’ll never be alone that’s for sure! Which (let’s be honest) is VERY important these days… more than ever.
Join us on our Facebook Groups… Groovi Worldwide & Clarity Worldwide! Both groups have over 5000 members each… all likeminded crafters, chocka block full of advice, friendship and inspiration!
(Side note: it’s an incredibly kind & supportive community, which is pretty unique online isn’t it?! We’re very proud of it.)
Join us in the SHAC SHACK! My Mum started these FREE online doodling & colouring classes back at the beginning of lockdown, in a (successful) attempt to Stay Home And Craft (or Safe, Happy And Creative).
It’s Live on Facebook every Monday, Wednesday & Friday! Or play catch up on our Youtube channel 🙂
Our Clarity and Pergamano family are united! Clarity bought Pergamano a few years back, and it’s headed up by the wonderful (and good friend!) Linda Williams… who is a bit of a Parchment celebrity I’ll have you know!
We’ve brought traditional parchment art together with our wonderful (and easy to use) Groovi system, allowing absolutely everyone to create and get involved in the art of parchment craft as one big happy family! There is no ceiling here at Clarity 🙂
We’re award-winning! Not to brag but… we are! My Mum started this company when I was just 3 years old.
I’m now… 30 years old! Wahey. So, we’ve been around for quite a while/basically my whole life.
And in that time we’ve won lots of awards!
I won’t list them aaaall here (because that would be braggy) but to name a few…
– Best New Craft Gadget (Groovi)
– Best Stamp Range
– Favourite Card Designer
– Best Craft Blog (my Mum’s, she blogs every day)
– Best Overall Designer
– Favorite Craft Company
– Favourite Craft Celebrity etc etc etc.
The list really does go on… and as you can tell, I’m incredibly proud of my Mum and the company she has built. I so vividly remember her regularly taking a small box of stamps and trying to sell them in shopping centers. And our exhibition stands getting bigger and bigger each year. Every award has been more earned (and deserved) than you could know, so hey… I will brag about her!
So, for all of the reasons above (and so many more), there has never been a better time to join the Clarity Family!
Newbies have no fear!
Grace is here.
And she’s totally a newbie too 😉
If you don’t believe me, check out this video I made at the start of this year… it features the Groovi Deluxe Starter Kit and me trying it out! And that same starter kit is included in the 50% off sale right now…
Tempted? I’m not surprised. That was a pretty good pitch, if I do say so meself 😉 But honestly, you can’t go wrong with us. We’re a family business, and we like to think that we treat our customers like family too. Because why wouldn’t we?!
Now, if you’ve managed to get through all of this, you get to be in for a chance to win! Tell me in the comments below one reason why you love Claritystamp as a brand (that includes Pergamano & Groovi!) and if you’re new, tell us what you’re most excited to try! I’m going to pick 3 lucky winners.
The prize? A sticker and paper bundle!
Yep, 3 different sets of stickers (LOVE them) and 3 different sets of ‘Barb’s Favorite Designer Papers’. For 3 winners!
Lotsa love, Grace xo

Pergamano and Groovi have inspired and encouraged me to have the confidence to believe in myself, that I can create something beautiful
When I first saw Barbara on TV demonstrating years ago I knew it was my kind of craft: ‘quality, inspiring and classy’. Then came Groovi and Pergamano and ‘pretty’ was added to the list giving even more diversity. Since then I’ve joined the community on Facebook and in the Shack Shac and now ‘friendly and supportive’ can also be added to the list. Wow, what more could you want as a crafter? X
I love that you are a family business that invite all of us to join your family and make us feel we are family. Everyone is lovely and it all starts with your mum, her ethics and her wonderful giving nature.
Watching Barbara on Hochanda years ago really got me into stamping. Everything she did gave amazing results and looked so easy. The quality of the products are second to none and now that I have gotten into Pergamano I am inspired all over again. Three cheers for Barbara and her amazing team!
Groovi and Pergamano have been a God send to me and has/is helping my mental health immensely. It’s such a huge part of my life now and taught me I can achieve anything I put my mind to. I’m so excited to create some new cards with lots of things from the sale when they arrive. Most of all the poppets, as I received my first beautiful poppet card from the very lovely Hilda who introduced me to Groovi back in May.xx
I love the products and the ethos of Barbara and her business and am also really pleased to support a British company.
Your mum is such an inspiration, so enthusiastic and gives so freely of her time. She has inspired me to have a go at Groovi and I love it and the products are of such a high quality. x
Won a Groovi starter kit at an open day a couple of years ago…. Lucky me… Was so pleased as I wanted to start this new hobby. Now… Oh my… How my collection has grown. I just can’t get enough of it ( can’t say bank manager agrees! 😂) it’s a hobby that has kept me sane and bought me greatnew friends. So thank you Clarity! 😍
I love the quality of all the products that Clarity sell. Their customer service is second to none, always someone on hand to sort out any problem, large or small. Keep up the good work Grace, you’re doing well
Amazing customer service
Amazing social media groups
Amazing kindness and generosity
Claritystamp as a brand means inclusion – as a beginner or an advanced crafter you can expect and receive great products, expert tuition and genuine encouragement.
Truly inspirational products and tutorials by brillant people. Thankyou.
I love the quality, designs and variety. I especially love watching and trying out ideas from Barbara’s demonstrations.
It’s really difficult to narrow it down to one reason Grace. Top two would be quality of products and amazing customer care! I suppose the first really, because if the products weren’t so great, we wouldn’t buy them and experience the wonderful customer care – I guess they come as a Clarity package!
Hi Grace, I love the whole Clarity Family from Barbara at the top to the Facebook community on Clarity & Groovi Worldwide. The customer service is 2nd to none & the help/inspiration from the FB community makes crafting a joy & very addictive. The SHAC Shack has been a life saver to hundreds of people over the last 7 months & many of us have discovered skills we didn’t know we had.
Clarity Rocks !!
I support & love all the Clarity products for there quality & design elements & the company really come over as a team that would always be there to support & encourage you, all the way , even if you are just starting out as a beginner.
I can see how the company has been built up over the years having been a customer for many years now.Barbara has never wavered in her vision of what she wants her company to be. The mark of a good leader is to have good people around you and let them blossom and grow and be themselves, that’s how you get the engagement and talent to come to the fore. I’ve been lucky enough to attend retreats and shows where I’ve seen Barbara and team in action and it is so obvious they all have a passion for what they do and whilst a company is there to make money, there is definitely a feeling of family when I interact with the Clarity team. Barbara inspires loyalty and provide a safe space for us all, I am grateful for all she and the team do x
I had always wanted to do parchment work but I don’t have a steady hand, groovi resolves this problem and I love it love it love it. Yes you do make mistakes but butterflies or flowers can cover up most things. I also love the shack shac your mum is brilliant. I have learnt so much many many thanks xx
Grace do you expect us to narrow it down to 1 reason we all love Clarity?? We are all ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY USING BRILLIANT PRODUCTS AND HELPING EACH OTHER TO USE THEM.
Love you all
Wow – what a pitch Grace, I think you should be super proud to be a part of your Mum’s journey! 😃
Clarity’s customer service is Second to None! Hard to find another UK company with such a team of amazing staff/designers, quality products and a fantastic design team to show off the versatility of every item!
A crafty friend was a fan of the Groovi system, and I had asked her to show me how to use it when next we had a crafty day. Lockdown took over and we were separated by miles and virus. My generous friend then bought me a Design Club Groovi subscription, a new skill to learn and occupy the extra crafty time.
I am now hooked on Groovi and am slowly building up my collection of plates and mates. Thank you for the , Pergamano sale I have made good use of it to buy essentials , and of course some very pretty plates.
I haven’t tried the groovi starter kid yet but I am heading over to the pergamano site and go shopping now and hopefully get the hang off this new craft with looks fantastic
Hi Grace. What do I love most about Claritystamp? That’s such a difficult question to ask me as I love it all!
I know I’m a lucky girl as I get to play with fantastic products and in doing so be a part of a fabulous team of people. I think it’s the community of people built up around the company that makes it extra special.
I’ve also learnt a lot and been able to develop skills that I never knew I had through using Clarity products.
Love and hugs xxxx
A caring company where nothing is too much trouble.
To encourage the newbies, the products actually do what it says on the tin. They are top quality and as others have said, the customer service is absolutely fantastic. The other thing is, apart from the fact that we are part of an amazing Clarity family, Barbara, Paul and the members of the Design Team always provide demos or give advice on how to use the products we buy and the whole family will answer any problems we have on the FB pages. And of course, there is also you, Grace. Like your mum, you inspire us on the blog and leave us feeling that we have known you forever! Steve keeps us up to date with all that is happening as well on the blog. Fantastic team. I’m not commenting to win because this is for the newbies, simply to encourage them and assure them that they will not find a better craft company.
I started to do parching in 2013 I used to watch Tina doing her amazing parching on tv saying to myself I can’t do that until a lovely friend of mine sent me a starter kit and that was that I was hooked
I started having trouble with my hand about 8-9 months after groovi came out I had quite a collection of plates even though I hadn’t used them so out they came
If it hadn’t been for your mum launching the groovi plates I would of had to give up a craft I am in love with
Then the groovi worldwide group was started what a wonderful group it is as well, no back stabbing, no making members feel stupid for asking a simple question we are just like one huge lovely family, I have made some wonderful friends through the group
All new members always get a very warm welcome when they join and are encouraged to post a picture of their cards
When your mum started the SHAC shack it was a lifesaver to lots and lots of us
I would like to say a huge huge thank you to Barbara and everyone at clarity for everything and as your mum says a dream team makes the dream work that is so so true for everything clarity
Carry on the good work dream team xxx
Great blog Grace
sorry but can’t nail down one reason to love clarity, have got and enjoy using all the different types of craft whether it’s stamps , groovi , stencils or dies I find a time for all .
Customer service is first class my questions / queries have always been answered and sorted
Thank you a at clarity
Great blog Grace! 💕
Even though I’m part of the DT, I still watched your ‘unboxing’ video…..you did it with such pizazz and enthusiasm. 🥰
I can remember when I got my starter kit when they first launched – I was so excited to start a new craft that I had never even considered, but it looked so achievable…..and it was!
And here I am now, enjoying being a small part of such a great Clarity team.
I must say, for anyone teetering on the edge of deciding whether to, or not……..go on, jump in with both feet and enjoy!!! Xxx
Just couldn’t knock it down to one reason for loving Clarity/pergamano, they are everything a company should be, reliable, caring, friendly just like a loving family. Nothing is too much trouble, you’re spoilt for choice and the generosity is hard to believe I for one couldn’t have managed without the amazing Shack Shac through these bad times.xx
The Clarity family is so amazing. Over the last few months it’s been very difficult for may people in many ways!!
Clarity has helped many through this .
I love Pergamano and Groovi.
Thank you Clarity!
Team Work makes the Dream work.
Impossible to give one reason when there are so many. From the sheer quality of all clarity products to the excellent demos and the enthusiastic way all tips and techniques are shared so openly, I love it all x
Brilliant and useful tips from all parts of Clarity! Barbara helps with ideas and tricks to use all the products! Wonderful ways of using everything! Barbara is such a tonic with her down to earth ways and laughter!
Apart from the excellent range of products I find the best think about Clarity is their customer service. It really is first class
Happy to find the Clarity family because it’s full of inpspiration!!
Saw your mum years ago demonstrating her stamps and the way you can use them.I love how she is enthousiast and in between there are always moments when she get an idea and will try that too.
I learned Pergamano from Martha Ospina after I met her in the beginning of the 80ths . Never done Groovi, but I try ordering some plates, but get stuck with the payment, so have to phone my bank for how to do.
Take care and stay save ! 🍀👼🌹
Greetings, Trijntje Huppel
You have written a very good blog today and I endorse every word. Claritystamp/Pergamano always feels like one big, warm family. I have made so many really good friends through the Retreats and Open Days as well as through Tina’s workshops and the East Northants Groovi Group I started with my friend Lynda Hidderley.
I know it is a business and quite a few people rely on it for their wellbeing but I never get the impression that sales are the be all and end all of it. Even on selly telly.
Hi Grace. I was first introduced to clarity by a friend who had a monthly class, with stamps. Then I met your lovely Mum at port sunlight, at the start of groovi. Have been a part of this wonderful family ever since. Fantastic products, and customer care. Through the Shac shack, more people have joined in. Thank you Barbara for keeping us occupied. Also you Grace, and all the rest of the team. Love xxxxx
Grace, I have to agree… the best thing about Clarity is that it is one huge happy family… something which is even more important to those of us whose bio families suck!
What I like about Clarity is they care. Displayed by quality, customer service, and everything they do.
Hi Grace, I’ve always been drawn to Clarity as that’s just what it said to me back in the day. Everything was clear, clearly demonstrated. The whole thing from order to delivery was clear. Now we have Groovi, although only just going to try it, it all seems clear. Perfect name for a perfect company.
I’m having a hard time choosing just one reason that I love ClarityStamp as a brand. You just do everything right. Quality, selection, customer service, it’s all there. I guess the thing I like best is that this is a company that genuinely cares about it’s customers and employees. The world needs more companies like yours.
Oh, so many many reasons to love Clarity – quality, variety, value for money, customer service, inspiration, personality and personability (if that’s a word), and the Clarity Team
But my huge shout out goes to … “Community” especially the SHAC-Shack, it’s a lifesaver, it really is
I love the way Barbara connects all of it up. You can die cut a Groovi project. Stamp on parchment etc etc.
Before I found Clarity I used to buy every new product from all different companies. Most are at the bottom of a drawer somewhere never used. Clarity is inspiring, good quality and it all goes together wonderfully well. Xx
Hi Grace! It’s so lovely to read all of that. Yes. You certainly should brag about your Mum and Claritystamp in general. It’s a truly amazing company and as for your Mum! I could go on forever about her, but I will just say that when I had the good fortune to meet her at the Leyburn Open Day, she is just as lovely and kind as she appears on tv and on fb. I started Groovi some time ago, and I found it very calming and it certainly helped with my M.E. Unfortunately over the last couple of years, I have been unable to do much, due to my husband’s illness and also moving house. So….. with the wonderful 50% pergamano sale now on, it seems the perfect time to get stuck in again. Credit card at the ready…. it’s time to go shopping!!! Yay!!
Hi Grace 😃 Clarity and wonderful Barbara have the best ethos towards her friends, I feel Barbara looks upon us all as friends rather then customers, everyone at clarity towers are so friendly and welcoming. Customer (friend) service is second to none and nothing is too much trouble!
I’ve been joining in at the SHAC SHAC since day one and having to isolate as I’m in the vulnerable group I have thoroughly enjoyed learning how to draw which I didn’t believe I could do! Barbara showing us how to break things down is brilliant. I get some strange looks from my hubby when I burst out laughing (listening with headphones) Barbara’s laughter is so infectious. When it was our 100th episode and Dave played “fanfare for the common man” I was crying along with Barbara but in a happy way 🙂. Thank you Barbara for keeping me sane ❤️
Keep doing what you all do brilliantly xxx
I don’t think there is another company quite like it, from first class initiative products to how caring and lovely everyone is, that’s what makes Clarity special.
I would never even attempted parchment crafting without Groovi….thank you so much xxx.
Other companies may have great products too, some sold by Clarity, but none have the caring customer service that makes everything accessible to everyone as far as possible. Just one example, I’m blind but there were stencils, Groovi and stamps so I could join in with the SHAC shack. Just Groovi itself makes parchment craft possible without sight. You only have to ring or e mail for help whether the issue is not being able to use your computer or something arty. So, Clarity is a brilliant company but it is uniquely accessible and that builds the great community around it.
Like many others I’m sure crafting gives a purpose to my day since ill health restricts so much else. I’m relatively new to groovi and parchment but together with shac shack it’s keeping me sane during lockdown and is also great to share with my granddaughter .
Not easy to describe one aspect. However – here goes GLORIFEROUS –
A superb family and certainly brought me from a very dark place.
I love Clarity and all who sail in her!
Hi Grace, fantastic blog yet again. What do I love most about Clarity? Well I have NEVER come across a company who cares so much about their products and their customers! What other company do you know where the owner gives so much of her valuable time and energy to her customers / no can’t call them that, it feels like we have been included into hers and your happy family! I genuinely feel like part of an ever growing family of like minded people who love all of the products the design team and the whole clarity family come up with. There is literally something for everyone and the products are interchangeable, even though my main passion is Groovi and parchment, I am adding in stencilling and stamping as it’s all so versatile.
Customer service is also top of of list of pluses too. Never a bad word said to anyone and always a friendly ear in the chats. I love everything that is Clarity! Xx
Hi Grace. Clarity are the best and friendliest Company I’ve ever dealt with. Customer service is brilliant. Your mum is an inspiration and I’m not surprised you’re so proud of her. She has been through a lot of difficulties I’m sure and she has succeeded against all odds which is amazing. Love the Groovi system. I was originally taught by Josie (Davidson) she did lessons in our little town so I was very lucky to have such a good teacher and now I’m so pleased for her that she is part of your Company. Take care.
Quality, accessibility and friendliness. The quality is superb, the website so easy to access and the service is second to none. There just isn’t a company like it. Love, love love it. 😁💕👍xx
Fantastic , helpful, friendly great customer
service excellent quality at all times x
I love feeling part of the business, it’s almost like I work there! I also love that I am always learning xxxx
Clarity is great! And love the groovi system! But during the lockdown and worrying times the Shac Shac has been inspirational to feel safe, learn and realise that your not the only one feeling the strain! Thank you
Hi Grace & Co
Finding parchment craft, totally by accident, has completely changed, and saved, my life………I have made some incredible friends along the way……..I only wish I had known about parchment craft 20/30 years ago……..
Love to all ❤️
I started to make cards after my second husband died late in 2013. Since then I have not bought one card from the shops! I discovered clarity through a friend (Deb McMullin) when I wanted a personal stamp made. I have also introduced my sister to card making when she lost her husband, for both of us this hobby has been a life saver. Over the years I have bought from various companies but Clarity is in my opinion by far the best. Barbara and her crew are so helpful, friendly and good demonstrators of their products. I have joined Barbara everyday in the SHAC SHAC and am amazed at the things I have learnt to draw. I love Barbara’s sense of humour which has helped to keep us amused and stress free during Lockdown. Groovi products are so well made and make parchment so much easier. Your special offers are amazing, as is your customer service. It’s great to feel part of a great family.
I had been crafting only a few months ( mainly paper piecing) when I happened upon this lady one day on create and craft tv . I was totally blown away by her and her demos and the stamps were just super . I was hooked there and then and have been a fan ever since . I’ve tried everything , loved everything but stamps are my first love . Simply the best 👏👏👏👏👏
I have met your Mum and some of the team at many exhibitions but the first time was at Farnborough many many years ago and your Mum asked me to help her on a demonstration. I have never forgot that and have been a big fan of all Clarity since. Joined the Design club – first stamps, then stencils and now Dies. Bought the Groovi starter kit a long time ago but have never ‘had a go’. Bought lots more Groovi products and they are still in the box. Naughty I know but I will get them out soon. Now doing Shac Shak – 127 hours I think your Mum said – loved every minute and learnt a lot. Stops me thinking of all the things that are going on now. Everything about Clarity is excellent. Thank you all.
Hi Grace. I resisted for quite a while getting on the Groovi train – I did stamping a bit and die cutting and embossing a lot so wondered where I would find the time for Groovi. Thank goodness I finally jumped on the train! I love it. The quality of everything Clarity is second to none as is the customer service. Joining in with the shac shack since day 1 has also given me another string to my bow because I have learnt so much about drawing and colouring. Your Mum is an absolute star and deserves every award going. If anyone is still not sure about Groovi all I can say is go for it, you won’t regret it.
As everyone says quality, customer service and the Shack Shac keeping me sane through all this turmoil 🙄
I love Clarity because it’s a family as well as a family business. We all take care of each other and help and support each other. Proud to be on the Clarity team.
Hi Grace, you have a lot to be proud of ! I’m now sat on my hands because of it! Thanks to a talented design team and the rest of the Clarity and Pergamano family.
Newcomers, jump in, you wont regret it – however don’t tell your bank managers !
Absolutely everything it is a whole world of imagination and inspiration Barbara and all the team included x
I loved clarity stamps before lock down the quality is fantastic as is the range. However since lockdown I love clarity because of the dedication and determination Barbara has shown her shack shacers (sorry hope new words allowed). Through sunshine and rain and most especially fear. PS those word books are an amazing price in the Pergamano sale.
When you think about Clarity the first thing that enters my mind is Barbara Gray and her wonderful team. Barbara is like a coulourful umbrella and all the spokes are her smashing team. They work well together like a well oiled machine.
I think the best things about Clarity stamp and Pergamano Are the quality of the products, the wonderful service and support That all we customers receive x
Hi Grace, I think it is impossible to choose one reason to love Clarity, I first used stamps back in 2003 but was finding it difficult with the wooden block stamps & then I discovered Clarity, the name says it all. I now enjoy stamps, stencils, dies, groovi & recently pergamano. Your mum and team are inspiring, plenty of hints & tips, the products are versatile and second to none, customer service- brilliant, blogs and websites user friendly and help is all around. Thankyou xxx
I love the stamps, I love the stencils
I love all groovi and all my pencils
Will all the help for me to take
I love the cards that I can make
I love the fact that Facebook live
Has help us crafters to survive
Barbara’s talent is freely shared
I can’t believe how much she’s cared
For all her fans, our mental health
With not a care to increase her wealth
Thank you all the clarity team
See our smiles, how they beam xxxx
One of the many reasons love Clarity Stamp is the amazing quality of all products that are so easy to use to get absolutely stunning results every single time, whether it’s stencilling, stamping, die cutting or my passion, Groovi and Parchment Craft xxxx
One of reasons I love Clarity is Barbara’s sincerity and the ethos of her company. I don’t feel she’s just about sales but genuinely cares for us all, she certainly got me through the toughest moments of lockdown with her humour and words of wisdom. She’s a truly lovely lady and we’re all blessed to have her xx
I love Clarity stamp because they are always demonstrating how to use the new products…I love a company that does that…at least when you buy you know you will know how to use it..I’ve been buying from Clarity since I found utube Tuesday…your mom is a gem…
Hi Grace, thanks for your help last night with my ordering. My challenge this winter is to perfect my parching. I have a few Groovi plates and some parchment. But I am normally to impatient so always end up spoiling the end result. But not this winter I go to get there with all your help. Just the perfect winter to calm it all done and get in the Groove!
I have loved Claritystamp since I first met them in 1994 -their integrity and honesty cannot be beaten and all of their products are absolutely first class -and made in the UK too.
I have been a fan for many years. I use to stand and watch Barbara’s demos for hours at the craft shows and have learned many a technique. She has always been so helpful and a great teacher. I started with the stamps back in the day and remember joining her first stamp club when you got a sheet of instructions and an actual photograph of the finished product. These days I am a member of the stencil and the die club and have just dipped my toe into the groovi system. Mums a trad parcher but I never had time for it until recently.
I started stamping with Clarity when Barbara was doing the lessons on create and craft and I got hooked on clarity stamps and being a traditional parcher I was interested in the Groovi system and started my collection I now seem to have loads of stamps and groovi plates which I absolutely love. I also love the dies so that collection is growing too. I get so much inspiration from watching Barbara and Paul on Hochanda and the shac shac has been a real God send over the last few months I havnt missed a session. Thankyou to all at Clarity xx
Hi Grace. I have just ordered this starter kit in the sale. I can’t wait for it to come. I am looking forward to trying something new. I hope I can do as well as you with my first attempt. Take care. Hugs xxx
Clarity well??. A super duper friendly and supportive family. Nothing is too much to ask of you. Courteous, nothing is ever too much trouble. Love and care abounds. Terrific merchandise. Only negative is the state of my bank balance. Love and appreciate you all. The Dream Team xxx
The word that springs to mind when I think of Clarity is integrity – a rare commodity these days. The variety of products, the consistently high quality, the inspiration from the design team, the daily blogs that make you feel included, the great customer service, all are really important but it is Barbara’s sense of integrity that shines through in whatever aspect of Clarity you look at. I wish Barbara was running the country – we’d get on much better and we’d laugh more!
I have been a stamper for ages, I’ve used stencils and fresh cut dies and this week my Groovi journey begins as I’ve ordered the starter kit. I shall watch your video when it arrives and I can’t wait.
You are all fab – thank you!
Just one word is so very hard but if it can only be one word then it has to be QUALITY!
Quality company run by quality people with the best quality products. They teach us quality skills too!
Thank you lovely lady xx
Hi Grace, enjoyed the blog
In my opinion, if you want the best quality crafting products, fabulous designs and impeccable service then you go to the best in the industry…..Claritystamp
You will find no one else offering such massive offers, especially during these turbulent times, as Barbara and her dream team. The generosity of time, our most precious commodity, sharing with shac shac family members, is a wonderful gift but then it is decorated with knowledge and kindness, oh and let’s not forget the humour too. For me this demonstrates the ethics of the company, so why go anywhere else.
So, grateful thanks from me xxx
I watched your Mum in awe with a brayer many times and never had the confidence to give it go even though I bought one, then I watched the launch of GROOVI and wow was hooked after doing some traditional parching and it looking very tatty here was something to help me achieve beautiful cards and give me the confidence to join Linda’s monthly class and try traditional parching again.
Your Mum is one in a million and I thank her for GROOVI and for bringing Linda into the fold to teach us how to use all the Pergamano tools that I bought and did not know how to use. XX
Hi Grace – I love reading all the Clarity blogs. I just feel like I am part of a big Crafty family who encourage support and help me be a better crafter. The products are amazing, good quality they have a certain style which I love and the guidance and tuition provided on HOCHANDA in the Shac Shack and You Tube is second to none. All the new friends on face book are amazing and support each other.
Thankyou Clarity, Barbara Grace and all the team for being there for us all in this weird world and I look forward to placing my first Pergamano order in the great sale!
Where do I start? I thank my lucky stars I happened on this and just love the community. Your Mum and everyone involved with her are amazing and have created a great community of followers who are so generous with their help and advice. You just know the quality of the goods is value for money. I’m just starting my Groovi journey and can’t wait for my de-luxe starter kit to arrive.
I’m new to crafting and haven’t really found my “thing” yet, but stumbled across some You-tube videos of Barb doing her thing and she makes it all look so easy. Loved watching everything that she does, her humour and helpfulness is unrivalled. Decided to order a few things from Clarity to get started and have just gone from strength to strength. Their customer service is incredible and if there is ever a problem it can be fixed easily and quickly. The wealth of knowledge that can be found on their Facebook groups is fantastic and when I got brave enough to actually post a card on their the positive feedback from everyone including some of the design team gave me the confidence boost I needed. Well done Clarity and thank you for everything you do.
It’s lovely to read how proud you are of all your Mum has achieved – and rightly so. It must be fantastic to be part of the company she has formed and you clearly have her same ethos and commitment. What do I like best? – That feeling of being part of a community, a family, of mattering, not being just a customer to line the pockets of a big cold business. Yes, I see the marketing opportunities taken (and I sometimes succumb when I wasn’t planning to spend) but I also see the real passion for sharing artistic expertise. Long live Claritystamp!
Clarity is a great company, it makes you feel like you belong and that’s mostly due to lovely Barb and the warmth and kindness she shows to everyone. Clarity products are always excellent quality, stamp designs are always just a little bit different and stamp beautifully.
I’ve yet to try Groovi and Pergamano but I will in time as it is enticing me. The products look great as you would expect from Clarity. I could go on and on but suffice to say this family business is a great business, top notch!
Everything you buy is good quality and good clear instructions on how to use! It’s also nice to know help is at hand if anything seems difficult at first. Keep up the good work please
What I love about this whole crafting experience your mum started all those years ago and continues to add to is how I feel when I immerse myself in having a go. It’s a feeling of contentment and warmth: like being wrapped in a blanket, snug, relaxed, safe and happy even when the finished piece doesn’t live up to expectations. As your mum says it’s the process and I am so grateful to have stumbled across her on TV a number of years ago (the shrink plastic episode still makes me laugh out loud). Generous, clever lady. No wonder you are so proud of your mum.
I love the friendliness and the personal touch. The company make you feel like they really appreciate us, the customer. And we, the customer, feel like more than just customers. Plus I love the SHAC shack. It kept me sane during lockdown.
There is so much to love about Clarity. It is just so much more than a company selling crafty goods …. although i have to mention that the quality of those goods are first class. As to everything else, I have always experienced superb customer service, the inspiration from Barb and the design team keeps me going and I have learnt so much in the SHAC Shack. I admire the company’s ethos – it’s a brand you can trust 100%
I love the quality and the designs of the clarity products. Xx
What do I love about Clarity Stamp? Where to begin? Friendly, approachable, proactive and reactive – if we suggest something and it’s feasible, Barbara does it. What other company do you know of that does that? Not once, but time after time after time. Customer service, help, advice, and Barbara’s time – getting people through the last few months and giving all that time, all that knowledge and expertise, giving of herself, all free, doing it for us! Wow! That’s just priceless. Thank you all.
One reason why I love Clarity…one word – Reliability. ( Products, service and advice are second to none) Thank you all x
I’ve been a member of the Clarity clubs for a couple of years, and I can tell you it never stops feeling NEW.
Clarity are always bringing us NEW products, NEW designs, NEW ideas, and of course NEW demonstrations.
It’s great to try NEW things and Clarity always give you the tools and guidance to increase our crafting abilities.
It’s great to feel like part of the Clarity family.
Love & Hugs
I started parchment work doing traditional parchment patterns but it’s groovi that has made this beautiful technique doable for me. The help we get from all of you at claritystamp and the groovi worldwide members wealth of knowledge which they are sooo willing to share means I can now do these beautiful cards. The products from both Claritystamp and pergamano are brilliant as is the customer service.
What can I say about Barbra and her team.
Friendly creative the best theres ever been.
The last few months Barbra’s been up with the lark
In the shac shack crafting getting up in the dark.
From birds on a wire to complex mandala
Sometimes a download cos some found it harder.
“There’s no rush, dosn’t matter how long it will take”
“Just keep practising its a piece of cake”.
Always adding new crafts we can try
From designer papers to a beautiful new die.
We shouldn’t forget groovi and pergamano
If you’re not tried them you must give them a go.
I’m just about done just one more thing to do
Love to you all and Barbra a huge THANK YOU!!! xxx
Forgot to say that I think that clarity stamps are the the best stamps I have ever used the quality is amazing
Everything about clarity is amazing;-)
I always look forward to new products
im quite new to parchment but I’m getting the hang of it with groovi and pergamano absolutely love everything.
I want it all 🙂
