Default Does TAC stamps clean the same as SU?

My boyfriend ordered me my first $100 worth of CTMH stamps for our anniversary. Well they are not for me. I can't get a clear image and they don't clean up as good as I'm used to.. So I have newly discovered TAC...What's the deal when it comes to cleaning the TAC stamps...do they work the same as SU?

Yes you clean them the same way as SU stamps. I use my SU scrubber that I got before I became a TAC demo and it works great!

The TAC ones clean just like the SU. I have never had a single problem. CTMH on the other hand--nightmare!

CTMH are acrylic stamps, whereas TAC stamps are vulcanized rubber just like SU! stamps so the clean up, care, and use will be the same. As is the ability to do 'heat' techniques like the stamping in velvet and other techniques that require high heat on the stamps.

I've just been experimenting. . . .doing all the techniques that I do with my SU stamps with my TAC stamps and they are great. I colored with my WWC too. I am in LOVE.

I have 3 containers of CTMH stamps (as well as many SU and others) and I don't have any trouble with them! They stamp beautifully and clean up nice. Most people tend to press too hard on acrylic stamps. Don't give up on them, just practice! I love SU stamps--I sometimes wish they would go acrylic (I know--bite my tongue!). I love the see through idea!


HTH, Nancy
