Stampin' Up! Introduces Photopolymer Stamps

Stampin' Up! Photopolymer Stamp Sets

If you love the idea of completely clear stamps, I've got good news. This week, Stampin' Up! announced the introduction of photopolymer stamps to their product line. Woot!

This kicks off a trial run of offering photopolymer stamps in addition to wood-mount and clear-mount rubber stamps. So far the response has been amazing - they are flying off the shelves! Stampin' Up! has released one set so far - Designer Typeset - with more on the way in the coming months. If photopolymer stamps prove to be a popular choice among Stampin' Up! customers, they'll keep the sets coming.

Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set
Item #132956  Includes 57 pieces!  Price: $13.95

What makes them so great?
  • They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement every time.
  • They are durable – the photopolymer material is designed to last.
  • They stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They’re age tested and won’t yellow or cloud up over time.
  • They are packaged in a cello bag (with an insert) – another great space saving option!
  • Great value! More images can fit in a set, meaning more stamps for a lower price than wood-mount or clear-mount.
  • Made in the USA.
While clear stamps have been around a while, there have been some issues in the past with lower quality materials on the market. Stampin’ Up! searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamps.

And they’ve found it! Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, it’s a match made in heaven.

New To Clear Stamps?
You'll find answers to some commonly asked questions below. If your question isn't answered here, please add your question in the comments below.
Q. How do I clean the photopolymer stamps?
A. Use your Stampin’ Scrub and Stampin’ Mist just as you would with any stamps. If they ever get dusty or lose their stickiness, you can wash them in mild soap and water. If you use them with Stazon, you can also use Stazon cleaner on them. But, use it sparingly and make sure you do not leave traces of the cleaner on the stamps after cleaning.
Q. How do I store the photopolymer stamps?
A. They come in a cello bag, between two sheets of acetate. One of the sheets is conveniently printed with the stamp images for storage. Our clear-mount cases (item 119105) work nicely to store them in if you prefer. Store them indoors - don’t leave them sitting out in direct sunlight.
Q. What kinds of ink can I use with photopolymer stamps?
A. Our classic ink in the firm foam pads is the absolute best choice. Versamark and Stazon are also ok. Make sure you clean your stamps promptly after use to avoid any staining or damage.
Q. Will the photopolymer stamps stain?
A. They are more prone to staining. Basic Gray and red inks seem to be the worst. Try to clean your stamps immediately after use to avoid staining.
