Default PTI Limitless Labels Question

I am having trouble with three of the label stamps from this set: the one with all the circles/dots, the interlocking circle one, and the striped band. I can't seem to get a clear image with these.

The striped band just gets smushed together.

When I stamp the ones with the circles, I can't seem to get the whole image to stamp--some part is always missing.

Any tips or tricks?

sounds like too much ink here... too little there


i like to press the stamp into the pad very well and then i kind of pat it on the pad. this seems to get it inked well but also takes off any 'slop'

good luck!

and remember that most pads will get a low spot where you tend to ink the stamps the most. you should be sure to use all areas on your pads.

did you try rubbing over your stamps with a white eraser first? It removes some of the residue left over from the manufacturing process and makes a huge difference...HTH

I will try that again with the stripey one. That one is giving me the most trouble!
Thanks.

Thanks for the advice. Is there one ink that is better for these stamps? I have been using the ColorBox chalk ink. I know she recommends Palete ink.

I only use Palette. (I have all of the spots plus a big black ink pad).

The Colorbox inks should work well--they give good coverage on clear stamps. Sometimes I'll have a flaw in a clear *block*--a low spot, so it doesn't stamp evenly.

I have similar results when using Colorbox chalk inks. Palette is the way to go, but I also have fabulous results with SU! Classic Inks, once I run the brand new stamps with a white eraser.
