Perfectly Clear Stamps

Stampendous Perfectly Clear Stamps™

  • Perfectly Clear™ Stamps are used with our clear acrylic handles for easy inking and positioning.
  • Each set comes on a clear plastic carrier sheet with a printed index and a cover sheet to protect from dust, glitter, etc.
  • Peel the stamp design from the carrier carefully the first time, and place on the clear acrylic handle. The stamp will cling by itself without adhesives.
  • Clear stamps work best with light pressure for both inking and stamping.
  • Use more than one image on a handle if desired.
  • Clean stamps while still on the handle and replace onto the carrier.
  • Stamps sets can be stored in our Perfectly Clear™ Stamps Tote or in our Stuftainers™ Thin container.











 

Cleaning Perfectly Clear Stamps

Clean your stamps as you would your woodmounted stamps. Use any of the following:
  • stamp cleaners
  • baby wipes
  • soap and water
  • rubbing alcohol
  • Avoid acetone, bleach and oil-based cleaners, these will damage your stamps.
  • Use rubbing alcohol to clean acrylic handles.
  • Clean clear stamps while still on acrylic handle.
  • DO NOT clean your stamps in a sink.
    • Small parts can be easily lost down a drain and cannot be replaced.
    • If you want to use soap and water, clean your stamps in a small bowl.
 









 

Creating Different Designs with the Elements in the Sets

Perfectly Clear™ Stamps are designed in interactive sets that allow the pieces to work together in a variety of ways.
  • Most sets include small elements that are intended to act as borders or backgrounds to complement the main images.
  • Each element can be inked separately, then positioned precisely with our clear acrylic handle. 
  • You can also combine several images on a block to create a larger image in one inking.
  • Alphabets provide numerous opportunities to create words for greetings, invitations, scrapbook page titles, etc.
    • When more than one of a specific letter is needed simply set up the word on the acrylic block.
    • Use the letter in its normal position the first time.
    • When you reach the place where the letter appears again, remove it from its previous location and move it to the new spot.
    • Stamp the word with the letter in its final postion.
    • Then, simply put that letter on a small block by itself and use the see-through positionability of Perfectly Clear™ Stamps to stamp it right in place as many times as necessary.
  • Our Short Stacks Series include heads, bodies, clothing, arms, legs, etc. to make dozens of interchangeable characters. All of these sets are sized to work with each other as well











The Best Inks for Perfectly Clear Stamps













 
  • Most inks that you use for your wood mounted stamps can be used with Perfectly Clear™ Stamps.
  • Some inks will stain your stamps more than others.
    • Chalk inks like VersaMagic and Permanent inks like StazOn will stain more easily.
    • Staining does not harm the surface or the performance of clear stamps.
    • If you can stamp on a wet paper towel then on a dry one without leaving a mark, it is clean enough.
  • VersaFine™ is perfect for use on your clear stamps.
    • This ink provides a crisp, clean image with only a light pressure.
    • It also cleans off easily and almost stain free.
    • You can use VersaFine with watercolors, colored pencil, or many other coloring media.
  • You may need to clean your stamps before the first stamping.
    • Sometimes manufacturing residues can leave your stamps ink resistant.
    • A quick cleaning with rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth will remove residue.
