What is the difference between “unmounted” and “cling”?
Unmounted rubber means it is the rubber sheet only. There is no backing or cushion. Cling cushioned rubber stamps or Cling Stamps (category on Amazon, Ebay, and various craft store sites) means that the rubber sheet is mounted with cling cushion foam. The foam has a liner that is peeled away and the stamp is most often used with an acrylic block.
Do you offer retail packaged stamps ready for retail sale?
We offer cling stamps retail packaged only in certain sizes as single stamps. Retail packaging not available for collections. If you are an existing business and want to add single, cling stamps to your existing product line, contact us for details.
What is the physical characteristics of the cling foam?
Our cling cushion mounting foam is 1/8″ thick, gray cushion. It has a static property that allows it to readily ‘cling’ to the smooth surface of an acrylic block. You simply peel the liner paper and place the stamp onto the acrylic block. When you are done stamping, you just peel the stamp off the block and store onto a polycarbonate smooth surface such as a laminated card stock. Never place cling cushioned stamps onto acetate, as it would lose it’s cling capability. You can re-charge the cling static by rubbing the cling stamp onto a cotton surface.
