The EZMount Static Cling Mounting Foam is the ultimate mounting foam for stampers. If you love unmounted stamps for the easy storage capabilities, but hate the pain of trying to mount them, this is the product for you. The foam is specifically-engineered to ensure that it will bond with the rubber stamp permanently. Just pull the blue liner that comes over the edge, stick your unmounted stamp on the super sticky foam and cut out around it. Once it's applied, your stamps will be ready to use with an acrylic block. Never mount a stamp again - it will be ready and waiting to stamp over and over again. The other side of the foam sheet has a static cling surface. The smooth mount cushion ensures a vacuum seal is created between your stamp and the block. In each package, you'll receive one 8.5" x 11" sheet. This foam is 1/16" thick.
Back in "the day", I was buying the "sticky" stuff from another company which didn't work -- at least not for a long period of time, and it was hard to tell which side to adhere to the stamp.
EZ MOUNT STAMP N STORE -- THIS STUFF IS WONDERFUL. If you want to save space on all those WOOD BLOCKS that take up a ton of shelving; this is the way to go! LOVE IT. Will be buying a bunch more as my conversion continues.
I had unmounted red rubber stamps and very easily backed them with this product. It was so easy, in fact, that I took all my wood block mounted stamps off their mounts and turned them into cling stamps. Sure saves me a lot of space. Wouldn't hesitate to buy more.
I couldn't find mounting foam at any of my local craft stores so I turned to scrapbook.com as I have many times in the past. I now have all of my unmounted stamps on cling foam and am so happy with this product. It IS very sticky, but I know that my stamps will likely never come off the foam. Stamps cling very well to acrylic blocks, too.
I just finished converting all my old wood block stamps to cling stamps using both 1/16 and 1/8 inch mounting foam. I can now use all my stamps in my MISTI. This product worked as promised. I would like to pass on some tips, though, to make the process easier. Since the adhesive on the foam is VERY sticky, you must use a pair of non-stick coated scissors otherwise you will become very frustrated. I tried using craft knives and my best fiskars scissors but the foam was very difficult to control. I bought a pair of Tim Holtz Tonic Studios titanium-coated serrated scissors and this made all the difference in the world. These scissors made cutting the foam much easier— I wouldn’t have finished my project without them. They cleaned up easily with Goo be Gone.
If you are using a MISTI with the black stamping pad in place, you will probably want the thinner foam. Even then, the door of the platform will not close completely. The thicker foam works okay without the stamping pad but I thought the impression wasn’t as good though the difference was very insignificant. I ended up using both thicknesses and will just play around with how I pad each stamp individually. Either size will work equally well with acrylic blocks.
Unmounted stamps are less expensive to purchase so this product is a good way to save money. It arrived safely and well packed. I prefer my rubber stamps without wood because it's easier to see where to place the stamp. I often microwave the stamp off wood for that reason and EZ Mount is the product to use to prepare your stamp for an acrylic block.
Since I have so many wood stamps, taking up so much room I am in the process of removing the wood from the rubber and using the cling mount foam to turn them into stamps able to mount on clear blocks.
Since I have so many I will soon have to reorder the cling mount foam to do all my wood stamps.
The best part is this order came in no time so that I can get organized.
I had originally thought these were the thicker rubber, but these are the ones that I meant to indicate as harder to stick to the acrylic blocks. The thicker sheets stick much easier, but these thinner sheets are easier to use on small rubber stamps because it is easier to cut around small rubber stamps.

I have a set of unmounted rubber stamps I purchased at a convention several years ago. I thought I would mount them on wood, but came across this product suggestion. It was easy to use and the static cling foam doesn't take up much storage space. I was impressed with the product.
