Clear Mount Rubber Stamps

You  might remember I posted a few days ago about the new Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue, and how the the stamps are now available as unmounted as well as wood-mounted?  I decided to try out the new Clear Mount system and bought a few sets to see what it was like, and I have to say, I'm impressed.

The stamps are made of the same high quality red rubber and dense foam, with a static cling backing to adhere to clear acrylic blocks (available separately).  Because there's no wood in the package, the stamps are cheaper than their traditional counterparts, and are stored in cases similar in size to a DVD case.

The stamps come with index sheets which you can stick to the back of the stamp if you wish - the index sheets are backed with the same static cling film as the foam - which means that you can see right through your acrylic block and position your stamp exactly where you want it to go.

The cases have full sized images on the front, and the stamp set name and thumbnail sized images on the side so you can see at a glance what stamp is where.

While I love the traditional wood-mounted stamp, these are a really good alternative, especially if you have limited storage space.  And as I said, they're cheaper which means you can buy more LOL.

The clear stamps are a brilliant idea and probably the most recent change in many years of the stamp process.
