I learned this the hard way...I bought some Basic Grey clear stamps thinking all clear stamps are the same. I was wrong. Even after conditioning them many times, I still can't get a good imprint from them. So, even though I love the images I bought, I don't use them.

Cling rubber is my first preference. I love that I can see where I stamp and the quality of the stamp is the same as SU.

Acrylics that I have seen are all made in China. I do own some acrylic stamps because I love the images, but I definitely prefer photopolymer.
