Verve stamps are high quality clear stamps manufactured in the USA. They are made of a naturally sticky substance that allows them to cling to acrylic blocks which you can find at many local and online craft stores. Your stamps will arrive in a cellophane bag sandwiched between two sheets of clear acetate. For all of our sets, with the exception of our Plain Jane Collection stamps and Limited Edition stamps, one sheet of acetate will be printed with an index of the stamps in the set.
How do I care for my Verve stamps?
Our stamps should stamp great right out of the package, but occasionally a little residue from the manufacturing process will remain. In this case, we recommend that you condition your stamps by rubbing them gently with a soft eraser or clean them before stamping. Our stamps are designed not to yellow, but to protect the longevity of your stamps, we recommend that you store your stamps away from heat and light. If your stamps lose their stickiness, restore them with mild soap and water and allow to air dry.
How do I use clear stamps?
Gently peel your stamp away from the acetate storage sheet and place on an acrylic block. Apply ink and stamp. The clear design allows you to see exactly where you're stamping for perfect placement every time. When you're finished, simply clean your stamps with a stamp cleaner, wipe dry, and store. Certain types of ink may cause discoloration, but this will not affect stamp performance.
