Clear rubber stamps are one of the most commonly available type of professional rubber stamps in the market to date. If you are looking into customised rubber stamps, clear rubber stamps can be a choice to consider customising with. However, there are certain things about them that you need to understand before you do go through with purchasing them.
Clear rubber stamps are accessible to everyone and easily customised. You can purchase them from specialty craft stores or rubber stamp design service providers at affordable prices. Some of the notable aspects of clear rubber stamps are that they are completely transparent when initially purchased, and are stored on backing sheets. The rubber stamps are slightly tacky to the touch for easy mounting purposes and can be kept without much fuss.
Most clear rubber stamps require mounting so make sure to invest in good acrylic blocks or wood mounts. Remove your professional rubber stamps from the protective backing sheet and make sure to attach to the mount evenly. Wait and apply even pressure to adhere it properly to the mount. Once the clear rubber stamps have been mounted, they can be used like most rubber stamps. Depending on the sizes of your rubber stamps, these professional rubber stamps can be arranged and combined together on one mount so as to create more design opportunities.
Clear rubber stamps are a popular choice since the cost of personalising them as company stamps are relatively lower compared to other traditional rubber stamps. They are also lighter and less bulky so storing and carrying them around is a convenient matter. Clear rubber stamps also provide stampers more accuracy since it is easier to gauge the stamped image through carefully monitoring through the clear surface.
However, rubber stamp owners should also understand that these clear rubber stamps are sensitive to dirt and dust. So they should be stored securely with no exposure to either elements and washed occasionally. Certain inks used also may stain the clear rubber stamps to a certain degree- while they do not affect the rubber stamp quality, they do make it harder to gauge the position of your rubber stamped design at times. Another thing to be prepared for is that their stamped marks are often softer compared to traditional customised rubber stamps.
If you do not require regular using, make sure to remove the clear rubber stamps carefully and reattach to the backing sheet. You can then pack these clear rubber stamps away in plastic cases like CD cases or even albums designed to keep photographs. Make sure not to bend these rubber stamps to preserve their quality!
