I'm back with another new set of stamping plates--this time the Winstonia third generation plates. The set has 20 plates, with a sophisticated look and a variety of designs. Let's take a look at it, and I'll say more at the end.
First, here's the video I made for those who like chit-chat with their plates :) :

To give you a general sense of size, here are two of the plates next to a standard Konad plate:

But how do they stamp?

They stamp well--the fine detail is preserved, and I love those crisp lines.
My overall impression of this set is excellent. I love a set that favors sophistication over cute (just my personal preference) and this one does; I also like that there are a variety of different images for a wide array of possible looks. The one down-side to this set the number of plates that have the harsh lines between designs; I prefer plates where the designs turn seamlessly from one to the next, but I realize that's hard to do well.
You can find this set on Amazon, and directly from Winstonia.
What do you think of the set? Any plates that are favorites?
