All Blue Diamond Stamps are made from a high grade photopolymer resin-- not silicone, acrylic, or rubber. The process involves curing the resin using a precise negative and exposure to light, rather than pressing material into a mold, cutting, or carving.
Photopolymer stamps have been used in the printing industry for over 50 years, and were developed to offer better properties than these other materials for printing. They can hold an amazing amount of detail and with proper care should last a lifetime.
Using a transparent stamp and acrylic block mount, you can see exactly where your image will land. This is fantastic for lining up multiple images.
Polymer stamps have naturally tacky backs and will temporarily cling to an acrylic block for use as a handle.
You may only need one block mount for your entire collection of polymer stamps and this saves you money and storage space.
Blue Diamond Stamps are packaged in quality hard cases perfect for the storage and indexing of your stamps.
