Do you have any tips for using these stamps?
Clear stamps have become massively popular in recent years, they are inexpensive, versatile and there are so many different styles to choose from. We recommend that you practice stamping on a piece of scrap paper before you begin your project. This will help to ensure that your ink is transferring correctly, it is the colour that you desire, and it will also help you to gauge how much pressure is necessary to apply. Ensure that you are working on a surface that is sturdy and flat for the best effect.
You should not need to press firmly onto the ink, instead use a gentle pressure and ensure that all parts of the stamp have been covered in ink. If your stamp is not transferring ink correctly, one handy tip is to go over the stamp with a pencil eraser or nail file before you begin. This help to rough up the surface a touch and remove coating that may have been left behind during the manufacturing process, and should ensure that your stamp works perfectly every time.
How can I clean my stamps in between each use?
To wash your stamps in between each use, use a small amount of mild dish soap on a damp cloth. Do not use baby wipes or any strong cleaners on clear stamps, as they will damage it after a period of time. Always avoid the use of any harsh chemicals or solutions, such as chlorine or bleach. Always store your stamps away from heat and direct sunlight, and we advise storing them with regard to themes so you can find them easily the next time you require them.
