Before you use your stamps, we recommend conditioning your stamps so the ink will transfer to your projects evenly. Rub the stamp across a stamp pad a couple times, then stamp on scrap paper, twisting while you stamp. Do this a few times until the ink is transferring evenly across the entire surface of the image.
Step 1: Carefully loosen the image on all sides with the edge of your forefinger and peel slowly from the carrier sheet. Center the image on an appropriately sized My Acrylix block.
Step 2: Ink the image with your Exclusive Inks color of choice. Press the image to your artwork with even, downward pressure.
Keep your My Acrylix stamps in tip-top shape by cleaning them immediately after every use, storing them on the carrier sheets in the envelopes (rather than on blocks), and keeping them out of direct sunlight.
Our stamp envelopes fit perfectly in our storage containers.
To clean water-based (dye) inks from your stamps, spray sprintz cleaner onto your stamp scrubber and gently rub your stamp across the surface while still on the block. For solvent-based inks such as StazOn, we recommend you use the special cleaner. Some discoloration from inks is normal and does not affect the stamps' performance.
Over time your well-used stamps may accumulate dirt, oil and dust which causes them to lose their stickiness. We recommend rinsing them with warm water to restore their clink. Never use soap or detergent as this may harm your stamps. Let the stamps air-dry and the "sticky" will return.
