Care and Conditioning
Once you’ve placed your order and your package has arrived, your first impulse is to dig right in and start stamping. But before you start stamping, always, always, always condition your stamps. (TIP: Even your red rubber stamps will work better after conditioning them).
Simply take an eraser and gently rub it across the surface of you stamps. Remove the eraser lint from your stamps by spraying Clear and Simple Stamps Stamp Cleaner, designed specifically to clean and recondition your stamps with every use. Wipe them off on your Clear and Simple Stamps Scrubber Pad, and store them back on their original index sheet. From that point on, your stamps are conditioned and prepped for endless hours of stamping.
It’s good practice to wash your stamps on occasion. This will prevent dust and dirt build up, which causes your cling backed stamps to lose their ability to adhere to clear blocks. But not to worry. A little mild soapy water will bring them right back to life.
Clear and Simple Stamps strongly believes in being a responsible company and preserving our resources. In doing so, our clear stamps are biodegradable and can be land filled without restriction. Our stamps have NO PTHALATES, LATEX, LEAD or any other unfriendly materials that could be hazardous to your health or the health of the environment. We also participate in a recycling program which insures very little of the materials used to produce our stamps are disposed.
Clear vs. Rubber
The age old debate….which is better? To make a full assessment, you first have to understand the difference in the types of clear stamps in order to compare them to rubber.
You have photopolymer clear stamps made from resin. These stamps were first produced specifically for the printing industry, whose sole purpose is to transfer ink. Their performance is as good as, if not better than rubber stamps.
Other clear stamps you may find are produced using silicone based materials, which actually repels ink. You will see a tendency for your ink to bead up and it does not make a crisp, even impression.
The advantage over rubber is obvious. Take the guess work out of placement and lining up your stamps. With clear stamps you know exactly where your image will appear. Sure cling rubber is an improvement over a full wooden block, but you still have less visibility than with clear stamps.
