Default I'm sure this has been asked before but....

I've heard you can microwave your stamps for a few seconds to take off the rubber for re-trimming. My question is.... is the rubber still sticky enough to re-attach after or do you need to ad some kind of adhesive? If so what?
Thanks in advance for any help!!

Yes, it is! Don't use the stamp for a while after you've repositioned it. I find it works better to reset the adhesive. Good luck! It doesn'yt take but 10 seconds to loosen enough to recut and readhere!

Yes! It works. But, um, don't do what I did and microwave it too long - it melts the plastic sticker! (and is really, really hot). However, it didn't harm the stamping part. I microwaved it for 20 seconds in my very powerful microwave. Dunno why I wasn't thinking to microwave it less time!

I've removed and repositioned stamps by microwaving them for 7-8 seconds and it works great. Doesn't seem to harm the stamp any either. HTH.

Be real careful when microwaving, as the wood does get hot! don't burn yourself like I did!
