Wood Mount Stamp Set Packaging

Introducing our new wood-mount stamp set packaging! These new cases are similar to our clear-mount boxes and fit perfectly on the shelf right next to them. They also have the images and stamp set name on the spine to make your search for the right set even easier.

Starting May 31 all wood-mount sets will come in this new packaging, and empty cases will be available with the launch of the new catalog. That means you can transfer all your old sets to these new boxes! There will even be a template for you to create your own label for your old stamp sets (available May 31). A pack of four half-size cases (3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″) will sell for $4.95 and a pack of four full-size cases (7-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) will be $6.95.

Get ready for all the exciting new products in the catalog–especially the new wood-mount boxes!


Using Photopolymer Stamps Video

The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. 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, let’s just say they’re meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options.  Be sure to scroll down to see the two new stamp sets.

What makes them so great?

They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
•They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
•Can you say sticky? (Don’t worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
•They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.
•We could go on, but we’ll let you try them for yourself.

Henry Says

Check out this adorable card by guest stamper Sue DiPasquale.  She used Henry Says stamp set from the spring catalog available until May 31, 2013.  I love how she popped up “Henry” and the banner for dimension.  The colorful borders were made using the Adorning Accents Edgelits.

Oh Henry - Sue

Thanks for sharing this fun card.
