Using Photopolymer Stamps Video

Video

The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let’s just say they’re meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options.  Be sure to scroll down to see the two new stamp sets.

What makes them so great?

They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
•They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
•Can you say sticky? (Don’t worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
•They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time.
•We could go on, but we’ll let you try them for yourself.

They are clearly a great choice.

Stampin’ Up! New Firm Foam Classic Stampin’ Pads

Video

Stampin’ Up! announced they are updating their Classic Stampin’ Pads with a new Firm Foam design.

First off, I want to clarify…
The only thing changing is the pad itself. The inkpad case looks the same and will have the same functionality as it currently does. However, starting on June 1st, you’ll notice a few changes which are outlined below.

With the introduction of the Stampin’ Up! 2012-2013 Annual Catalog, we have made exciting changes to our Stampin’ Pads.

We’ll be introducing NEW Stampin’ Up! Firm Foam Ink pads! They change your stamping experience for the better.

We know you’re going to love these new Stampin’ Pads! Just look at all the exciting benefits listed below:
•Provide better ink coverage for your stamps!
•Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
•Pad stays juicier for longer resulting in better ink pad longevity!

In addition, our new Stampin’ Pads
•Have a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off!
•Come with color name labels in all four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)-just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the side of the pad for easy identification!
•Use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist!
•Are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!

Please note: Five ink colors have undergone formula changes to improve functionality and color stability with the new firm foam pads. These colors are:
•Basic Black
•Basic Gray
•Marina Mist
•Perfect Plum
•Tempting Turquoise

All five colors of the reformulated inks have been fully tested and approved. While using the new ink formula in the old Stampin’ Pads is fine, we do not recommend using the old ink formula for these five colors in the new firm foam pads. Any current color refills purchased after April 30, 2012, will contain the new formulated ink.*

* However, the new ink formula for Basic Gray, Perfect Plum, and Tempting Turquoise will not be available until June 1. In addition, the Neutrals, Subtles, and Brights ink color collections will not contain the newly formulated ink for Basic Gray, Perfect Plum, and Tempting Turquoise until June 1.
