Review: LeaLaC Stamping Plate LLC-A


Recently, Llarowe introduced their own line of stamping plates. Because I am a stamp-a-holic, I had to give them a try, and I'm going to review one of their plates, plate LLC-A for you here today. I'll show you the images, give my opinions about the plate, and compare the size of the images with a standard Konad plate.

I've also made a video if you prefer to see the images that way, along with my excited pratter about them, lol:

On to the images!:

Love those raindrops and snowflakes

So many cute ones here

Love that quill and lily

Alt houndstooth FTW

Egyptian hieroglyphs!!

Pretty cherry blossom tree

Love the Hamsa

Love that cobblestone-like pattern

So, here are my thoughts on the plate. The quality of the engraving is excellent, and there is a nice variety of images to suit a variety of purposes; some are patterns that we've seen before (but this is good because of the larger size--see below) and many that are new. I tested this plate out and it stamped beautifully--you can see one of the images on my ring finger in this post here. So there are no worries about quality or usability to be concerned about.

The most important feature of these plates for many people will be the HUGE size of the images. Here I've compared them with a standard Konad plate, and you can see they are about twice as big:

This is great for anyone that has wide nails or long nails--especially people who have longer nails and don't want to have to double-stamp on them. I know that I keep my nails fairly short, and Konad-sized images still sometimes barely fit. So, those problems should be greatly minimized here. However, when looking at these, keep in mind that the entire image isn't going to fit on your nails (well, not human nails, at least). So you want to keep scale in mind when you're ordering these, and keep in mind that the raindrops, for example, are not teeny little raindrops, but larger raindrops. The circular mandala shape, for example, is not going to fit on your nail as a whole. It isn't meant to. And the good news about this is you can use different portions of the image, especially if you have shorter nails, and even vary the portion of the image you use for different nails in your manicure. Excellent for creativity! Of course, you're going to want to have an XL stamper to use with this plate if you want to use it for longer/wider nails, but if you have shorter nails, a regular stamper will work just fine to isolate portions of the images.

Overall, I'm very impressed with this plate. At the time of this posting, it sells for $20.00; you can find it on Llarowe's site by clicking here.

Thanks for looking, and happy stamping!

  2. OMG those ARE huge!!! Great review, thank you for taking the time to share it. :D

    1. You're very welcome! Thanks for coming to see it. :)

  3. Omg these stamps are massive!! I was wary of getting them because I wasn't sure how big they were, but I'll have to buy them! Now the only decision is: Plate A or Plate B? Haha

    1. I understand your dilemma...I ended up getting both, hee hee hee...>.>

  4. Have you compared the LLC plates to the DRK plates? I am just curious,which images are larger? I am still wondering which plates to get.Thank you for the lovely review.

    1. I have! I have a post all about the sizes of different plates, which you can find here: . The LLC plates are the largest, definitely, but the Drikk aren't too far behind. :)


Make my day--leave me a comment!
