The Quality of Kitchen Sink Stamps
Kitchen Sink Clear Stamps™ are made from a High Quality Clear Photopolymer resign that won’t turn yellow. They have a deep etch and hold fine details. They are not made from silicon like some stamps made overseas.
This Photopolymer resign is porous which soaks up the ink for a crisp impression and works well with all types of inks*. Staining from inks may occur, but this does not affect the quality of the stamp.
Silicon stamps are not porous so the ink will sit on the stamp surface and bead up.
No need the cut Kitchen Sink Stamps apart, they are all ready for you to play. Just carefully peel the stamp off it's protective acetate sheet, place on your acrylic block and start having some stamping fun!
Kitchen Sink Stamps are also 100% made in the USA.
A Important message from the manufacture (Clear Stamp Inc.) of Kitchen Sink Stamps.
“We continue to monitor and test products coming from overseas. It has come to our attention that many of the imported clear stamps contain phthalates. Phthalates are know to cause cancer, birth defects and reproductive harm.
The photopolymer clear stamps produced by Clear Stamp Inc. [for Kitchen Sink Stamps] have NO harmful chemicals and are also latex free.”

* Note: if you choose to use an alcohol base ink, like Staz-on,
it is not recommended to use the Staz-on cleaner. It is possible that this cleaner may have a chemical reaction. This is what I have heard. When I use Staz-on, I just wipe it clean with a damp cloth or use a stamp cleaner made especially for clear stamps (the stamp will still be permanently stained).
• WARNING! Do NOT store your clear stamps where the stamp itself can touch any metal. The metal can cause a reaction in the photopolymer, causing the stamp to break down.
