I think they are trying it out to see how it received. Starting on a small scale . You have to give what the customers are asking for. The wood was taking up too much space so they went to the unmounted stamps. I hope they get more sets since this one does not appeal to me. Maybe I will try one then.

It's on the SU homepage. The only thing I'd really like in that set is the banner-with clear you could bend it easily. I generally don't really like clear stamps though.

I think it is a smart move for SU, and I like the set and samples. If ever there was a set to introduce with clear, it is an alphabet stamp. Goodbye, Stampa-ma-jig!

yes I did! but so did a lot of other people. I know that there are many folks who do not like clear, so hopefully SU will be one of the rare companies that offers everything. that's hard to do but SU is so big I bet it can pull it off and make those of us who love clear happy.

I'm going to get the set eventually because I see some fun uses with it and want to support the idea of having SU clear as an option. They have put out so many sets that I would have purchased but only if in clear. So I'm happy!

I didn't think that dye inks worked well with the clear stamps. Wonder if these are different somehow so that they will work with them.

When they recently reconfigured the ink pads, I figured it was just a segue to introducing the clear stamps. Good for them!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE clear stamps toooooooooooooo!!!!!! Yay!!! I kept smiling at work last night, but my co-workers (non-stampers) didn't care about this. LOL.

Me too; I would have bought SO MANY more of their sets if they had been available in clear!!!

I have never owned a stamp-a-ma-jig - loathed using it in all the classes that demo'ed it. Every time that I'm forced to use one (like at someone else's house where we are making all the same cards for a good cause for example) I dislike it even more!!

Yes, ladies it is true--SU is just testing this one set at a time. They are said to work well with the new reformulated ink pads!

I've always preferred rubber to clear, just because I think rubber produces a crisper image--but perhaps these will be different. I'll be interested to read here about how people like them!

I am always interested to hear the bennies of either stamp in these threads. I prefer the cling mount over the clear and because of that, there are some manufacturers that I will not even consider. I have seen many PTI cards that I just love but can't stand the clear stamps so I never even go to the website. I would guess it is a pretty big venture for SU to do this though...I would guess that the manufacturing process is very different; at least with wood vs cling, the rubber is the same, it's just the backing that changes....clear is a whole 'nother animal

I like their cling stamps too. Clear stamps are hard to clean and stain easily. I prefer wood and cling stamps.

I prefer clings stamps. I have some clear ones, but like the cling better. They could get rid of their wood stamps. Wouldn't bother me at all!

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this yet, but this is only on a trial basis. Depending on how it goes SU may release more.

For me, it's not that SU is going clear, it's that they are going specifically PHOTOPOLYMER clear! There's a BIG difference between acrylic clear and photopolymer clear. Since I first read all the accolades on the forum by a few stampers on the wonders of photopolymer, I did some further research. I was new to stamping last Jan 2012 and if I was going to invest in great tools I wanted to spend my money on great stamps. I've bought from VERVE and several other companies since. They cling exceptionally well to acrylic blocks and stamp beautifully, crisp and clear.

I wonder what the stamps are that I have. I don't even remember where I got them all. They stick like the dickens to the block (so much that I've ripped a stamp or two trying to remove them) but don't always stamp nicely.

I love rubber-even wood mount rubber lots! I buy clear mount now for the cost savings. I don't mind poly....but I do like my rubbah'!

I do think it's a great move for SU. Makes lots of sense. I may buy a few sets if it's the kind of set where you really need clear...like two-step.

Still love my rubber...did I already say that? Tee hee!

they sound like the cheap acrylic. all the better stamp companies -- Waltzingmouse, Flourishes, Lawn Fawn, PTI, Hero Arts, etc. use high quality photopolymer.

Many of us get very crisp images with photopolymer and regular dye ink. It requires a different pressure. It is just what you get used to.

But not everyone likes everything. Hero Arts and Impression Obsession sell wood mounted, cling mounted and clear photopolymer. Gina K sells cling rubber and clear.


Smart merchandising. Not all companies can pull off multiple types but the ones that can will cater to a very broad audience. I only buy photopolymer stamps. You can get so much more for the money and the space saving is amazing.

Enjoy whatever appeals to you.

I know one of them that stuck was PTI. I ended up rehoming that set because it would never stamp right. I have some CTMH and some Two Scoops Rice Designs but I can't remember where any of the others are from.

I am interested in seeing more demos using the set before I would be willing to try it. Right now, all the demo sites that I checked out just have links back to the original samples from the Stampin Up page, not any samples they made themselves. Even on the SU samples, some of the letters look a little "squooshed". I'd like to see how they work for other people.

Actually, I even prefer cheaper-quality (not photopolymer) clear stamps to rubber. My Penny Black stamps are not photopolymer, but they stamp crisply, with all the detail intact.

All my Crafty Secrets (photopolymer) stamp with an amazing amount of minute detail.

I'd be thrilled if SU went to clear. I have to admit, it took a LONG time for me to order clear stamps from any company, because the only experience I'd had was a cheapo set I picked up at Michael's, and that wasn't a good experience to say the least. But then I started ordering from Verve, and then SweetnSassy, and realized that good quality clear stamps are so much easier to work with than rubber. Even when Gina K started offering clear a while back, I wasn't so quick to order, just because I thought her rubber stamps were such good quality. So I decided to try one of the freebie sets in clear, and realized that I wasn't ever going to order rubber again. In fact, her last two releases the new stamps have only been available in clear.

So that means that the only company I buy rubber from anymore is SU. I really hope they make this change so I can just completely convert. To think, five years ago I would only buy a stamp if it was rubber attached to a wooden block. How things change.

I wonder if they will be manufacturing the stamps themselves, or if they'll be going through another reputable company. Most of the better stamp companies in the US get their clear stamps manufactured by Stewart Superior (based out of La Porte, Indiana).

Looking forward to seeing what is done with them. I have both clear and wood. I have a large collection of wood mounted, so I started getting clear for space needs. i love that this could make some very happy stampers!

Thumbs up

I think it's a good step in the right direction.

Some people like Clear Acrylic Stamps, (me)

Some people like Wood mounted stamps,
(me)

Some people like clear- Unmounted rubber stamps (me)

And some like digi Stamps (Not Me!)


So if you look at it....There is something for everyone.

We were able to order on Friday. I know some overnighted their orders, so start checking demo sites again Monday afternoon.

I'm on the fence about them but I think they could be a good option and I know there are lots who like them (at least the higher quality ones) so I'm looking forward to trying them...guess I should put in ANOTHER order lol!

They had the photopolymer sets at the SU! regional seminar in Calgary yesterday and used it on stage. It appeared to work quite well with the new ink pads.

This will be another alternative ... Photopolymer/clear, wood mount, clear/cling mount.

There are at least two other photopolymer stamp manufacturers in the U.S. that I'm aware of that make excellent products!

I have never had a problem getting a good image, detailed or otherwise, with quality photopolymer and quality ink. I find Versafine and Versamagic or A Muse ink to work beautifully with every photopolymer stamp that I own. I will also use Memento although I don't care for the results on solid stamps.
