You all have helped me so much over the last 3.5 years....... I want to give some help back.
I have a very large collection of rubber stamps.......... I consider each stamp a miniature work of art. Unfortunately, through the last couple of years, my collection of stamps that make poor impressions has also grown. The larger the stamp, the more I struggle to get a clear and crisp impression. I searched the net and tried lots of remedies......... stamping on a cushion of cardstock, stamping on a mousepad, stamping on a phonebook. The list goes on and on......... The other night I came across this video by Colleen, 47CMC, on YouTube. This video and the Speedball Press have made every stamp in my collection usable again.......... including wood mounted, cling mounted, and acrylic. Thank you, Colleen.

I purchased the press and it arrived 2 days later........ It has made me fall in love with stamping all over again......
All the stamps I struggled with but loved are now usable........... You can see my blog for my test comparisons, I don't know how to post a picture here
