Default I can't get my PaperTrey stamps clean at all!

My poor Little Ladies are all stained--especially the ones I used with black. I used the Palette Noir, which has come right off my rubber stamps. I even cleaned with my Ultra Clean (which I don't like, 'cause the oily residue it leaves makes me crazy!)

I know they still stamp the same, but they look so sad! The ones I used with the black don't look like I cleaned them at all. Anybody have any ideas for me??

Amy,
I think that's just gonna be on the downfalls of using the acrylics. Mine are also not "clear" any longer and are all wonderfully colored. Look on the bright side, they're easier to find when you drop them or set them to the side for a couple minutes

My "2 little dots" stamp was--oh the horror!--lost briefly in the carpet. If it hadn't been stained, I'd never have found it! LOL

I was bummed when I discovered acrylic stamps don't clean perfectly. Especially with black Stazon. I am a clean stamp freak, so it still bothers me a bit. But, rest assured, you haven't done anything wrong, just the way the material is!

It is just something you get used to. Tools is what they are. Actually I purposely stain mine with black because then I can tell exactly what is what and read all the sentiments in the case. They will work just fine!

I've been using clear acrylic stamps off and on for about 3 years. They've all stained to one degree or another, but the Palette Noir seems exceptionally staining! I may have to go back to Staz On and Basic Black. I was hoping someone would have discovered a secret way to get the Noir off.

I'm just now venturing into the world of clear stamps as well. The best bit of advice would be to practice on scratch paper until you get a feel for it! It's definitely different than rubbah!

I thought Stazon damaged some clear stamps. I could be wrong but I think I've read that on here a couple of times.

I don't think I've ever been able to totally clean my clear polymer stamps after using any black ink. As long as they are just stained and not full of ink, it doesn't bother me and kind of makes it easier to see what the stamp is anyhow.

Do NOT use Stazon as it will destroy your blocks. Ultra Clean is the best thing for clear stamps.

I love stained stamps. I was so thrilled at the yellow tint on my ladybugs after I stamped with yellow. A stained stamp is a loved stamp, that's how I see it.

Here is my question - does Stazon INK ruin the acrylic stamps, or just Stazon CLEANER? I used Stazon ink to stamp, but used TACs stamp cleaner to clean them (stazon cleaner smells pretty nasty to me). I'm hoping just the cleaner is what damages them, for very obvious reasons.

Yeah, it would definitley be nice to have a set of "rules" and such for using acrylics as far as inks go. So far I've avoided anything but craft inks and dye inks because I don't know what to really use. But I really want to watercolor so I would like to know what I can use to do that with safely for my work and for my stamps!

I haven't tried the chalk inks, but I've read they work well. I have used Palette inks with mine. You can watercolor with Palette inks. They also work very, very well with Prismacolors and gamsol. But I wanted yellow ladybugs, and the only yellows I had were Stazon, so I used them. I cleaned the stamps well, so hopefully if Stazon ink does damage to clear stamps, I got the ink off enough that I don't have to worry about a single use.

Wonder who we could ask about the types of inks and cleaners safe for these precious babies.

I believe Stazon ink is fine, just not the cleaner. The TAC cleaner is the same as Ultra Clean and as far as I am concerned it beats even the Stazon Cleaner for cleaning and there will be no damage. I also wipe my stamps on a baby wipe after cleaning with any cleaner just to get the chemicals off.

Argh, I'm getting nervous about acrylics. Got my order on Friday - must search this site for more info!!! Thanks for the tip about staining. I tend to be a clean freak and would have probably scrubbed the acrylic to nubs!

I have used two inks on my PaperTrey stamps. I found that when I used a bright pink Fluid Chalk ink that it leaves a very light pink hue on them after cleaning. (haven't used the other colors of chalk inks yet but assume they will behave the same.)

Versafine Onyx Black washed off completely. For most of my stamping with black, the Versafine has become my ink of choice for acrylic or rubber stamps.

I have come to terms with the fact that my acrylics will be tinted, but am OK with it because it really does make them easier to locate in the case.

The instruction sheet that came with the PaperTrey stamps says "both pigment and chalk inks are my first choice when choosing a medium to use in conjunction with acrylic stamps", so that's what I plan to use. It also says "when you have finished stamping your image, clean the stamp by rubbing it on a moist stamp-cleaning pad". I'm simply assuming that the "moist" designation means something such as Ultra Clean, but you know about assumptions!!

Mine are super stained from using the Color Box ink, I mean to say that it doesn't even look like I cleaned them at all, they're super brown! But I don't mind, as someone mentioned, a stained stamp is a loved stamp, lol!

Have any of you tried any of the cleaners made especially for polymer stamps? I have some by Julia Andrus, called Perfect Poloymer Stamp Cleaner. I haven't used it yet.

Something I have learned about Acrylic Stamps.

If you don't want ink stains on your stamps.

Ink them first with VersaMark Ink and then ink your stamps like you would with your ink.

I do this everytime I use my acrylic stamps. I only own a few Stamp set's of them.

Clean up is much better.

I have not had any problem cleaning my stamps while they sit on my acrylic blocks.

And I use Simple Green and water to clean my stamps!

I never had either. I was really surprised that the Palette ink stained so much worse than the StazOn! That was unexpected.

I also use Simple Green, and it cleans most things (including mascara off my daughter's moss green skirt!) very quickly.

I avoid Ultra Clean on my clear stamps. Dye ink will come off quite easily -- usually just by stampin on scratch paper, but a quick wipe with water will work too.

Why do you avoid using this with your clear stamps? (Just curious.)

I'll tell you why *I* avoid it! It's very oily, and it usually causes my clear stamps to come off their acrylic blocks. And then, I have to wash them with soap and water (or other cleaner) so that they will be "sticky" again.

But I think I'm the only person on SCS who doesn't love UltraClean.

UltraClean is a great cleaner. I just don't like the oily-ness of it. It works very well. That's why I was surprised that I couldn't get the Palette ink off with it. . .

I would give it a try, as it won't harm your photopolymer stamps otherwise. I've used Ultraclean on my clear stamps and haven't had the issues amysings has, but I bet she stamps a whole lot more than I do too! It might be a usage thing.

Ok, I just ran to Mike's to use my coupon on a Versafine Onyx ink pad. I stamped sentiments from Green Thumb, and they came *completely* clean with just a baby wipe! And the image was every bit as clear as with the Palette.

Soooo, I'll be investing in Versafine for my PaperTrey stamps. I wish I had known how badly the Palette Noir would stain my PT. I wouldn't have used it.

I know. They will be stained forever.

Believe me, I am way AR about cleaning my stamps. But I"ve had to let it go on these. Acrylic just doesn't get as clean as rubber.

I still love them!

I think Ultra Clean is stinky and oily.

BUT, it cleans your stamps!!!!

I have to laugh! I am usually very sensitive to smells( it drives my DH crazy!lol) and I never noticed a smell or an oily residue, but then again I have only used it on a couple of sets that were stained really bad from the stazon. And it does clean those babies!

This is what CTMH has to say about Stazon:

Q. Will Staz On ink or cleaner damage My Acrylix?
A. Staz On ink was designed for permanently decorating non-porous surfaces such as glass, metal, and ceramic, not for use in albums or with paper crafts. The ink has no effect on the stamp or block, other than discoloration. We recommend cleaning your stamps with the Spritz or Stamp Cleaner as outlined above, immediately after use for best results.

Staz On Cleaner was designed to erase mistakes or residual ink on your stamped surface before the ink dries. Although it is safe to use on your stamps, we do not recommend using Staz On cleaner (or any oil based cleaner) on My Acrylix blocks.

I use whatever ink I want, I've had acrylic stamps for ages, they are ALL stained and it's fine. I did find today some versafine RED and I was so happy but I'll have to buy it later. (for the little lady I mean) I LOVE versafine.

Oh I clean all my stamps with baby wipes, I find the cheap costco brand works great.
