I have several of the hard...

Thanks so much!
This might not be the place to ask, but is there a specific method for cutting out the stamps or to just get as close to the image as possible?

I've tried a few impressions without mounting and it's difficult.
I'm also printing on fabric which adds another level of difficulty.

I guess I thought more people used rubber stamps on shirts and/or used screenprinting ink which is why I asked here.
Might have to blaze a new trail and figure out my own methods :)

Glass doesn't work, steel doesn't work, iron doesn't work, wood doesn't work and cardboard doesn't work.
