Guard Your ID Stamp Reviewed

 I received this very practical and very useful gadget for Christmas and the Guard Your ID stamp has quickly climbed to the top of my favorite gadget list!

Guard Your ID Stamp

How The Guard Your ID Works

I believe this gadget falls under the "Why Didn't I Think Of That!" category for paper management. While I make every effort to go paperless I still receive unsolicited and undesired direct mail advertisements printed with my personal information.

Many times the direct mail advertisements are heavy on paper and envelopes, but have your personal information just one spot. The Guard Your ID stamp is perfect to quickly eliminate the personal information to then dispose of the mailer in the trash or in the paper to be shredded pile. 

Easy as 1-2-3 simply open the stamp, blot out your personal information on the mailer and you are done!

Quick, Easy & Convenient

I love the ease of this gadget. All you have to remember is to replace the cap, give a twist to the cap and the ink and stamp is stored safely for the next use.

Paper Shredders Plus Guard Your ID

The Guard Your ID stamp is the perfect companion to the traditional paper shredder to protect personal information. If you have ever tangled with a home paper shredder I have found that our home shredder is not fond of the mailers and envelopes. Nothing like having a few unwanted envelopes stuck in the shredder to try and untangle.

Fun Practical Gift

I liked this gadget so much I purchased the three pack to have one at the office and two in the gift bag stash. A great little add on for practical gift giving. Savings Hint: Coupons on the single stamp and three pack are available frequently on amazon for a nice savings!

  1. What a handy gadget. I could have used one yesterday when I was cleaning out files. And I agree with shredders not working well with some mailers. Clever idea for a gift too as everyone can use one.

  2. What an unusual, practical, and thoughtful gift! Identity theft is a serious problem, and it has taken literally years for someone I know to restore her identity and creditworthiness after having her identity stolen. An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure when it comes to ID theft!

  3. What a great idea! I hate having to spend time tearing up junk that comes in the mail. I always worry that it could be easily reassembled too. We do have a shredder, which I use daily, but it also takes time to empty. Being able to stamp out information would certainly be wonderful.

  4. This is an excellent idea and I could certainly use one. We have a shredder but as you say it does not cope with everything. I think this would be easier and very handy. Lovely gift idea for anyone!

  5. Yes, this falls into the why didn't I think of that category for me. Wish I had thought of it. Like you I don't like throwing papers that have my address and more into the recycling, but with this stamp, it would make that a non-issue. Thanks for the heads up on a great gadget Tracey!

  6. Oh that's a handy gadget for sure. I've never heard of this before. You can't be too careful these days. Makes a great small add-on gift as well for those working at home.
