I love wooden stamps but hate the large amount of space needed to store them. When I saw this product on a podcast I knew this was the answer to my prayers.
When they arrived, very quickly I might add, I was so excited. I went to my scrapcorner and immeditally started pulling my stamps apart~Bad Idea~one day I will learn to read directions first=) But once I got everything together and did as I was told, everything worked great.
I had a large bag and a few boxes full of wood mounted stamps so I purchased 4 sheets to get me started. 85% of my stamps have been converted and only one sheet has been used. AWESOME product.
I use StazOn black ink to stamp my image on the cling side of the foam. The sticky side is REALLY sticky so I have to clean my Xacto knife often. Sometimes I use scissor but find that they tend to cut at an angle. My stamped image does not always line up perfectly with the rubber stamp but its a good guide and allows me to quickly find exactly what Im looking for.
Now instead of storing my rubber stamps in a disorganized bag or box, they are in clear CD cases, organized and easy to get to. The best part, they take up at least 200% less space then they did before! Oh, and some of the wooden blocks have been converted to new tools, such as a ink dabber by adding a little velcro and some felt. Adding a few holes with a drill , the larger blocks are perfect paint brush holders.
IF you want to make certain that your unmounted rubber stamps stick to a surface, this is it! The only drawback is needing to clean your scissors mid-way through cutting them out. By that I mean, after cutting out 5 or so the scissors needed to be cleaned with fingernail polish remover to get the adhesive off the scissors. There is no question that the material will hold the stamps.
I have been searching and searching for a product like this. I make my own custom clear stamps and never been happy with the double sided tape to hold them to the block. This product is just the thing! Clings great and then peels off the block when done. I will continue to purchase this product and highly recommend.
