When I first opened the packet I thought they were useless - so thin - but now that I have used them I know I was wrong - They
are excellent - there is such a wide range of sizes that I never have an overhang from the stamp - They are not heavy (Which I thought I needed) so I don't drop them back on my work.
Over the years I have used less than great blocks for my cling stamps...these assure me that the stamp will be placed exactly where I want it....gone are the days of hit and MISS stamping. The grids make certain everything is perfectly lined up...YES, on this addition to my stamping collection
These gridblocks are wonderful. They are thin, so they are very responsive and easy to use. They also store very easily. I'm thrilled with them.
This is what I've been looking for. I've needed these different sized blocks for stamping and couldn't find them. I can always count on Tim Holtz for supplying basic needs and creative ones as well.
Since I don't have to much storing space, these thin acrylic blocks are perfect. And it's really cool to have so many size options in one package. Nonetheless I am thinking about buying an additional thicker small block for my tiny stamps.
I love everything by Tim Holtz. Unfortunately, I found these gridblocks too thin. I prefer thicker blocks because I think they give me more control over my stamping. Just my opinion.
It's a great help while stamping. It's light, comes in 9 sizes so you can chose the right size to your clear stamps. Have lines so you can adjust stamps precisely. Although it could be a little thicker so it's easier to use it for those with big fingers:) For me it works fine. I'm very glad I purchase this sett! Little but very useful.
I have only used one so far but love it. I'm so glad to have a full set. Been trying to make the 3 I have work for all my unmounted stamps and it doesn't always work so well. No worries from now on.
I like the grids -- helps you line up images. All the blocks are thin and I'm used to thicker blocks. I like that there is a range of blocks from small to large -- can now use cling stamps for backgrounds.
I am very disappointed with this product.
The thin Acrylic layer makes it a challenge to stamp properly due to lack of gripping surface often causing double or movement while stamping.
I would highly recommend a thicker stamping block or maybe gluing some Tim Holtz handles/knobs on them.
