Default re-mounting stamps

I have a customer asking me how to do this. She bought a cheapy set from another company a while back and is not pleased with how sloppily the the stamps were trimmed. I've heard you can do this, but don't know how...can anyone help me?

Thanks!

Wendy

If they're wood mounted you can stick them in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds and then re-position.

I'm not completely sure, but I did this for my SIL awhile ago. Here was my method... I just pulled the rubber stamps off, retrimmed, wiped the wood with alcohol (to get the old stickies off), then put adhesive on the back, (I just use my mono) then restick to the wood blocks. I hope this makes sense & helps! Someone else might have a better way, but this worked just fine for me.

Hi....I have used the microwave method and it does work. The microwave warms the adhesive and makes it easy to peel off.

I just learned about this too, 10 seconds in the microwave, it even stays sticky so that you can just retrim and restick!

Thanks! So, you just use Mono-adhesive to put the stamp back on?

I haven't needed any sort of extra adhesive, my stamps have stayed sticky after putting them in the microwave. I just restick it onto the block, no added adhesive.

Default if...

If they lose their stickiness, use rubber cement to reattach. Put cement on both pieces and then let dry just a tad, and stick together.

I bought the double sided sticky foam at a local stamp store & completely pull everything apart & remount. Even some of the trades I've gotten that have been sloppily mounted have been redone. I tried the microwave method & the sticky stuff all stayed on the block & none was on the foam, plus the foam came off the rubber. I personally don't like that method.
