How to use unmounted rubber stampsHOW DO i USE UNMOUNTED STAMPS?

Using unmounted stamps with acrylic blocks will not only save you money, but you will save storage space as well.   All unmounted stamps come with cling mounting cushion, and a storage container. 

Once your stamps arrive, simply peel off the backing from the adhesive side of the mounting cushion and mount it to your rubber stamp. Next, trim the excess rubber using a sharp pair of scissors.  I recommend the Kai Gold scissors (available in The Angel Company Catalog) as they are great for cutting rubber.  Finally, peel off the backing from the cling side of the cushion and you are ready to go. 

Still confused?

It stays in place by static cling. Once you are finished with the stamp, you peel it off of the mount and then place it back into your container. The older-style CD cases (not slimline) work perfectly for storage.  You only need to purchase one set of mounts in a variety of sizes since you are using them over and over. I recommend the Acrylic Mounting Starter Kit (available in the catalog for $14.00 plus tax & shipping).

Acrylic handles are perfect for using Alphabets! 

How do I store my unmounted rubber stamps?


I recommend using CD cases for storage of your unmounted rubber stamps. Be sure to use the older style CD cases as opposed to the newer slimline cases. (NOTE: Avoid storing your rubber stamps close to the eThe Angel Company - unmounted rubber stamp storage in cd casedges of the CD case since there are raised lines that will make indentions on your stamps. I mark off these areas with a marker.) 
Index your rubber stamps by making an insert for each case and put a label on the edge. Storage bins make great containers and are portable so you can take them anywhere.
