I love all types of stamps and buy based on the images. I have just "discovered" Flourishes and these are the fist clear stamps I've had that I've really liked...perhaps because I sanded them before using. But they are line images, so I'm using Versamark & embossing powder with issues with Versamark.
Not all clear stamps are photopolymer but all photopolymer stamps are clear.

Photopolymer is the substance that high quality clear stamps are made from. Companies like Crafty Secrets, Flourishes, Hanna Stamps, My Favorite Things, and Verve all use high quality photopolymer for their stamps.

Some companies use cheaper substances like plastics that don't stamp as well, stick as well or last as long.
Hope that helps.
