I don't have a Smash journal yet, but have kept art journals for years and also do various types of art and design work. The Date Smash Stamp is great for dating anything you want. I'm using it in my current journal, on ATC's, and on the back of greeting cards I've designed. In addition, it has clever comments ready to use or I can set it to print a block to write a code, initials, model number, etc. (I could also use it as part of my artwork if I wanted to.) The grooved setting wheels are easy to move, so set up is a jiffy. I'll be able to document dates through 2022, so by then I think I'll be ready for a new one - LOL!
