Tips for Clear Mount Stamps

Do you ever have a problem with your Clear Mount Stamps getting a ready good stick to your block?

Aren't clear-mount stamps a great addition? I love them too! But you're right-getting them to cling to the blocks can sometimes be tricky, especially if you live in a humid climate. 
Luckily, I've got some great tips. Start by making sure the block is clean; cleaning them with the Clear Block Cleaning Cloth (item 121779) and rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner works great. Once your block is squeaky clean, apply the stamp to the block firmly-you can't damage the stamp or the block, so push hard. You can tell if you pushed hard enough by turning the block over (rubber side down) and looking at the air bubbles. If the air bubbles are flat, you're good. If they're still nice and round, push harder until those bubbles flatten out. 
 If the stamp is still not sticking, try these two quick fixes:

  • Apply just a little squiggle of 2-Way Glue (item 100425) on the label of the stamp and let it dry completely. It dries clear but is a little tacky, which helps the stamp stick to the block better. 
  • Because the foam on the clear stamps has a stronger cling than the label, try using the stamps without the labels. This only works on stamps that you haven't labeled though. If you've already labeled your stamps, don't try to pull the label off; you'll damage the stamp and the label! 
I use the 2-way glue on all of my Clear Mount Stamps since I really scrub them hard when I clean them.  I just put a squiggle on when I receive my new stamp sets and let them dry upside down for an hour or so before placing them in the case and putting it on the shelf.
