These stamps are adorable as everyone can see right off the bat. But, what most folks don't think about it that you don't HAVE to use them for dates alone. You can use the numbers to do a Top 10 or top whatever list. Or, use the months on a page to show how your little one has changed over the year. I got these to use on perpetual birthday/anniversary calendars for my grandmothers. They adored them and I enjoyed using them. They are very easy to clean and they cling very well to the block unlike a lot of stamps that need adhesive to stay in place. I have used mine a bunch and they are holding up very well! Just be prepared to have them "stain" if you use StazOn ink. It won't wash off, but then again, it is meant to be permanent ink.
THIS IS MY SECOND SET OF CLEAR ACRYLIC STAMPS AND I LOVE THEM! WOOD MOUNTED STAMPS ARE SO HARD TO STORE AND THESE GUYS ARE JUST TOO EASY! ALL OF THE STAMPS IN THE SET COME ON ONE SHEET AND PEEL OFF ONE AT A TIME...NO NEED TO CUT THEM! YOU CAN SEE WHERE YOU ARE LAYING THE STAMP WHICH IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE WITH WOOD MOUNTED STAMPS! I'LL NEVER GO BACK TO WOOD BLOCK STAMPS AGAIN! OH YEA...AND THEY ADHERE TO THE ACRYLIC BLOCK VERY WELL! THUMBS UP FROM ME!
I have been all about making magnetic perpetual calendars of late...and this is really the perfect stamp set for doing this! such whimsical numbers....love it!!!
very cute dates, easy to use & clean.
Lost one star for:
- the " '9 " stamp, somtimes "bleeds" shut to a 0
- it's impossible to combine multiple numbers to a "year numer " (like combining a 20, 0 and 6 to make 2006 - there is no 0 present wihtout an accent in front)
