The EZ Mount Stamp N Store is the ultimate mounting foam for stampers. The foam is specially-engineered to ensure it bonds with the rubber stamp permanently. It's so EZ to do! Just pull the blue liner that comes over the edge for easy application, then place your unmounted stamp on the super sticky foam. Never mount a stamp again. The other side of the foam sheet features a static cling surface. It will create a good vacuum seal between your stamp and the acrylic block. In each package, you'll receive three 8.5" x 11" sheets, which are 1/8" thick.
I love wooden stamps but hate the large amount of space needed to store them. When I saw this product on a podcast I knew this was the answer to my prayers.
When they arrived, very quickly I might add, I was so excited. I went to my scrapcorner and immeditally started pulling my stamps apart~Bad Idea~one day I will learn to read directions first=) But once I got everything together and did as I was told, everything worked great.
I had a large bag and a few boxes full of wood mounted stamps so I purchased 4 sheets to get me started. 85% of my stamps have been converted and only one sheet has been used. AWESOME product.
I use StazOn black ink to stamp my image on the cling side of the foam. The sticky side is REALLY sticky so I have to clean my Xacto knife often. Sometimes I use scissor but find that they tend to cut at an angle. My stamped image does not always line up perfectly with the rubber stamp but its a good guide and allows me to quickly find exactly what Im looking for.
Now instead of storing my rubber stamps in a disorganized bag or box, they are in clear CD cases, organized and easy to get to. The best part, they take up at least 200% less space then they did before! Oh, and some of the wooden blocks have been converted to new tools, such as a ink dabber by adding a little velcro and some felt. Adding a few holes with a drill , the larger blocks are perfect paint brush holders.
I purchased the 1/8 inch thick EZ mount cling foam to convert my wood mount stamps to cling mount to save space and make them easier to find. The conversion was fairly easy. I read several reviews and tips for using the EX mount foam and found that for me it works best if I remove the stamp from the wood block and foam leaving just the rubber part then trace the stamp onto the backing paper and cut before removing the backing paper. This made it less sticky on my scissors. I also found that I could easily remove the adhesive from my scissors with a baby wipe.
The adhesive on the EX mount foam is strong and holds the foam to the rubber stamp very well. The cling side is amazingly strong as well and there is not need to add anything sticky to it. I purchased 2 sheets and was able to do 10 stamp sets, so about 5 sets per sheet depending on the size and number of stamps in the set. I will need about 10 more sheets to finish my project but it is going well so far!
IF you want to make certain that your unmounted rubber stamps stick to a surface, this is it! The only drawback is needing to clean your scissors mid-way through cutting them out. By that I mean, after cutting out 5 or so the scissors needed to be cleaned with fingernail polish remover to get the adhesive off the scissors. There is no question that the material will hold the stamps.
I have been searching and searching for a product like this. I make my own custom clear stamps and never been happy with the double sided tape to hold them to the block. This product is just the thing! Clings great and then peels off the block when done. I will continue to purchase this product and highly recommend.
Only thing that would make this product better is someone to cut my stamps and cling out for me. Works like a charm. Finally got all my loose stamps mounted and use them like I need to. Using this product allows me to add to my stamp collection so EZzzzy and affordable.
Although wood-mounted stamps will always be my favourite, they are expensive to purchase and bulky to store. Many stamp companies sell unmounted "red rubber" stamps at a fraction of the cost of the wood-mounted versions, which can then be turned into "cling mounted" stamps using this great product. Closely trim the rubber stamp using straight cuts; stick the stamp onto the sticky side of the foam; and cut again using the stamp as a template. The sticky side is very sticky and can "clog" some scissors: Tim Holtz Tonic scissors work well for this. The "cling" side of this product is fabulous - it works brilliantly! I have been using this product for years and can't recommend it highly enough. It's a little bit fiddly and it takes a little bit of time to trim and mount your stamps but the end results are worth it: all the benefits of wood-mounted stamps at a fraction of the cost; easy storage; and easy use (mount onto an acrylic block or onto a MISTI or similar product - so easy!).
Very easy to use. Make sure you have a good sharp pair of scissors. I stayed away from unmounted stamps for years because I had no idea how to use them and didn't want to bother with using spray glue. These are great. Read the directions and you can't go wrong.
