This is a valid question on its own, but in the context of the thread I wanted to clarify. TAC does not sell clear stamps. The stamps are deeply etched rubber, IMO the same quality as SU. The difference is they are not wood mounted, but instead backed with creative cling that you use on acrylic (clear) blocks. Although I am not sure, I believe CTMH sells clear unmounted stamps.

Is that true?
Everyone else has already clarified that it is easy to clean off the cling side, I'll tell you what my husband said (jokingly) when I started with unmounted stamps.

"But what if you run out of static"

Well then, if the world runs out of static, we have bigger problems

When I started with TAC in 2004 TAC sold both wood mounted and unmounted. But then the next catalog they got rid of the wood mounted stamps.
And kept the unmounted stamps. which I like.

But I thought at the time that they had bit off their arm....Because I lost a lot of customers because they wanted the wood mounted stamps.
But now I can see that it doesn' t matter to much anymore, Cause people use what they want. Whether it's unmounted or wood mounted,

Our stamps are Blue rubber which is clean and fresh looking. Deeply etched.

I don't think that SU would ever go unmounted.
And I would be surpised if they did.
I still use wood mounted stamps. and have not yet unmounted any of my Stampin' up! stamps.
or any or my other wood mounted stamps.

I have a set of TAC stamps that I got a long time ago. around 2000 that is still very clingy...
Not problem with them falling off my Acrylic block unless I peel them off.

OK- I have another question about CD storage- I am a huge fan of the whole cling mount system- I have finally been trying to get my stamps organized into CD cases (until now I've just kept 3-4 sets of stamps in one SU box, but I've noticed some are starting to curve a bit from not laying flat) So what do you do with stamps that are too long to fit in a CD case? Any suggestions? TIA

I have store most of mine flat...So I haven't seen this happening to mine yet.
Larger stamps or Sets you can do it two ways get two cd cases and label them #1 and #2 with the name on it.
And some other's are taking Travel size baby wipe containers and using them to store the larger stamps inside you can't see them. But just mark the outside somewhere.
also DVD cases work just as well...

You can often put the long border type stamps on the diagonal in the case.
