I have used many different kinds of blocks for stamping and I must say these Umbrella Crafts - Perfect Clear Acrylic Stamp Block Kit are the best. They are so easy to hold because of the curved edges and they are solid without being heavy. Plus I really like having the grid lines etched into the block, makes stamping so much easier to get it all nice and straight. I would highly recommend these to all my crafty friends.
I was suspicious of this item because of its price, but I decided to give it a try. I was very pleased with the quality. You get 3 blocks that could easily take care of all of your stamping needs. They are thick and have a waved border which help you to easily grip the block during stamping. The grid also helps you to line up your stamp and sentiments in a straight line. Enjoy!
I'm newish to stamping, and had been using really cheap acrylic blocks that were 1/4" thick. A few months ago I bought a set that were just under half an inch, and thought those were amazing - less ink on my fingers and easier to hold. When I saw this set was on such an awesome sale, I decided to see if another 1/4" would make a difference. Oh holy cow! It seems silly, but it really, really does. I now get NO ink on my fingers when stamping, and my small hands can hold them comfortably. I hope they'll eventually make them in bigger sizes. These are great for most of my needs, but I do have a few background stamps that won't fit the biggest in the set.
These are the acrylic blocks I have been searching for! They are 3/4" thick which mean my fingers have enough space to grip the block without getting ink on them or subsequently the project I am working on. If Umbrella Crafts produced other sizes I would buy those in a heartbeat! Great Job Umbrella Crafts and thank you Scrapbook.com for carrying them.
The Umbrella Crafts Acrylic Blocks are thick and have curved edges that allow you to firmly hold the block with ease. The etched grid lines and crisp, clear acrylic makes it super easy to line up and stamp your image right where you want it! The price is SO reasonable and these are now my go-to stamping tool!
