Default Who's sells the BEST clear stamps?

I am considering taking the leap into clear stamps. I want to know which clear stamps you think are the best ones out there right now with the best designs. Can you direct me to some great clear stamp websites? Thank you!!!

You might check out Close To My Heart. I would say that they are the best acrylic stamps in the world, but I might be a little biased. Check out the website at Closetomyheart.com for more details.

My favorite company for clear sets is Impression Obsession. They have great sets with sayings, holidays, butterflies, beach. I just love them all.

I haven't tried too many clear sets - but I do have some from Inky Antics that I really like. They just released some new clear sets in July.

I will second both Inky Antics and Impression-Obsession. I love IO's word sets--bought a whole bunch and use them all the time.

I just started using acrylics about 6 months ago and have only used CTMH. I love them. I was making cards last night and kept peeling off one stamp and replacing it with another and with the way I was handling them, you would have thought they would have torn or been damaged, and they are still in great shape. I also like the CTMH acrylic blocks the best. If you have been using wood stamps for a while, their blocks are the closest match that I can find to match the feeling of the wood.

Impression-Obsession

The word stamp collections I love are under Stamps>Clear Stamps. You need to click several pages in--Word Play Clear Sets: Sentiments (available in 2 fonts) and Express Yourself.

I've used mine a ton--my customers at my card classes have used them a lot and none have been damaged (which is pretty amazing). There are other sets there as well that look great.
