Clear stamps - HELP.

I know a lot of people prefer the clear stamps to the wooden mounted ones, so I have a question for those of you who the above statement refers too.

I bought some clear stamps from Walmart on clearance, but when I went to peel them off of the plastic thingamajig paper they started ripping? Is there a better way to get them off, and how do you store them without getting dust on them and ruining them.

I don't know why they would rip. Unless they're a really cheap brand or something. They shouldn't be ripping though.

I store mine in their original packaging. I don't have a ton of clear stamps though. I have heard you could store them in clear cd cases.

Yeah, I don't know why they'd tear. I've never had that happen.

I store my in their packaging, and all them in a clear storage box.

I too store mine in the packaging them came in. The individual ones I buy I have in a little basket. As far as the ripping, I'm really curious why that happened. Maybe you should return those, because they shouldn't rip at all!

I guess you know why the were on clearance now Sad

Stamps shouldn't rip, I would take them back and ask for your money back, or it was such a good price, maybe just not worry about that one?

I store mine on the original plastic piece they came on, and then in a plastic holder, although my stamp collection is getting too big for it.

They shouldn't rip...I agree, take them back.

My CTMH clear stamps are stored in their packages in a box. Most all of the rest of mine are in CD cases. I unmounted many of my ones on wood and have them in CD cases too. I take out the round part..and hook the stamps to the plastic. I even have some that are just plain rubber and aren't that adhesive in CD cases. I stamp the images in a paper that fits inside the lid and many are labled down the side too. All my CD's are stored in CD boxes on the top of my stamp shelves.

Oh no. I was just thinking about going to Walmart this morning and picking up some that I saw a few days ago.
