Default can i use sharpie in leui of stazon?

i'm making an acetate card, and would like to stamp directly on the acetate, (actually i'm using transparency.) i don't have a stazon ink pad, and instead of buying one, i was wondering if i could use a permanent sharpie in a pinch. also, if i can use it, what should i do to clean up the stamps?

if you mean can you use sharpies to ink up your stamp... i would say NO!! sharpies dry WAAAAAYYYY too fast... if you are really desperate and have a really steady hand, i would stamp on a piece of paper with regular ink and trace the acetate with the sharpie... but definitely do NOT put the sharpie to the rubber directly... HTH!

Versafine should also work on acetate. Its my favorite black ink, and cleans off of the stamps very nicely.

Yup; all you'd end up with is a stained stamp you'll have to use special cleaner on to get it off.

Sharpie direct-to-rubber no worky.

They do make Permanent Marker Remover, it comes with hobby kits to make electronic circuit boards, I found it after I had to use it to remove permenant marker off my lino floor thanks to my DD. It worked to get off the marker but it melted the lino slightly. I'm guessing that it would wreck a rubber stamp too.
