Photopolymer Help

Diane Gardner
I received this message from a customer -

On September 19, I ordered two bundles from you, one of which was Fall Fest. I have tried several tricks to get a clean image when stamping the pumpkins but none of my tricks work (using a foam pad, holding stamp on the paper for 10 seconds, making sure the stamp is inked up well). The color doesn't transfer evenly, it looks 'patchy'. Can you offer some advice that may provide a fix for my problem? I am disappointed that I can't figure out what to do.

Anyone have an advice that I can give to my customer?  Thank you.

Jenny Pierce

This has happened to me and two of my customers.  Tell her to take an eraser and rub it all over the stamps.  Clean the stamp with water to remove the little pieces of eraser.  After that she can ink up the stamp and stamp onto a piece of paper still using the foam pad.  IF it still isn't working, call Stampin' Up and they will replace the whole set.

Re: SU!: RE: Photopolymer Help

Catherine Harwood

As Jenny explained -- the eraser really does help remove the by-products of the manufacturing process and give the stamp surface what I call better "tooth" to attract and hold the ink. One thing I would add: I use a white eraser as it does not leave eraser residue on the stamps -- just gives it a great surface. One rub with a white eraser when they are new and they ink great (and I use the foam piercing pad underneath always).

After her trying all this stuff, I would get her a new one. I don't think our customers should have to go thru all these "tricks" to get a stamp to work. 

It irritates me when a stamp doesn't work straight out of the pack. I think as a demonstrator we should hold our supplier to a higher standard as this seems to be an on going problem.

Re: SU!: Re: Re: Photopolymer Help

Beth Grace

Sorry, I disagree.  I see nothing wrong with having to clean or condition a stamp before using it.  That does not mean it's a cheap stamp.   It's the nature of the manufacturing process.  I always clean mine on the Stampin' Scrub before using them.  Then I ink it and test stamp it on my grid paper.  It may just need another cleaning on the Stampin' Scrub and it's good to go. Think of the added cost if SU had to clean every stamp set after the manufacturing process.  We would not get stamps as quickly if they had to do that.  

Also keep in mind, lately there have been many sets where the image really isn't solid even though it looks like maybe it should be.  The small square stamp from For All Things comes to mind.  There are light and dark parts to that stamp.

Just my opinion.

Yes, there might just be a problem with the photopolymer stamp. Sometimes there are bubbles in the photopolymer, so it will not stamp properly. Call DS and they will help your customer.

In reply to this post by cherylbarclay

Actually some other companies’ stamps come with instructions to clean them before using – I see nothing wrong with doing that.  We wash dishes before using the first time, right?  There are chemicals left on the stamps after curing and often they don’t completely form until well after the stamp is created.  Think of what kind of fits we would be having if we had to wait for that to happen before stamps were shipped!

 

Just let people know that this is the sign of a HIGH QUALITY product that is made correctly, not cut and slice or extruded like cheaper products.

RE: RE: Photopolymer Help

In reply to this post by Jenny Pierce

The hint I have is not to have a too juicy ink pad and not to press too hard onto the ink pad otherwise exactly what is happening happens.  Photopolymer stamps have no tolerance for too much ink.   I love my photopolymer stamps even the solid ones.  I do always clean them prior to using them and stamp on the mat.  I am not sure returning them unless there is a clear fault is the solution.

This has happened to me and two of my customers.  Tell her to take an eraser and rub it all over the stamps.  Clean the stamp with water to remove the little pieces of eraser.  After that she can ink up the stamp and stamp onto a piece of paper still using the foam pad.  IF it still isn't working, call Stampin' Up and they will replace the whole set.

Also keep in mind, lately there have been many sets where the image really isn't solid even though it looks like maybe it should be.  The small square stamp from For All Things comes to mind.  There are light and dark parts to that stamp.

 

Just my opinion.

It irritates me when a stamp doesn't work straight out of the pack. I think as a demonstrator we should hold our supplier to a higher standard as this seems to be an on going problem.

I received this message from a customer -

On September 19, I ordered two bundles from you, one of which was Fall Fest. I have tried several tricks to get a clean image when stamping the pumpkins but none of my tricks work (using a foam pad, holding stamp on the paper for 10 seconds, making sure the stamp is inked up well). The color doesn't transfer evenly, it looks 'patchy'. Can you offer some advice that may provide a fix for my problem? I am disappointed that I can't figure out what to do.

Anyone have an advice that I can give to my customer?  Thank you.

It really is nothing different than having to "season" our rubber stamps that have a large plain surface that you would use our light sander on to give the rubber some tooth to ink better.  I think if you explain these things to customers they get it.

RE: RE: Re: Photopolymer Help

Diane Harman
In reply to this post by Brenda Crawshaw

I agree with Brenda on this.  I have always cleaned ALL my stamps from the day I first started stamping over 14 years ago.  One of the things I show my ladies is checking for ink coverage on the PhotoP is so much easier, you can see right through.  And as I am stamping, I describe how cool it is to see the ink come off the stamp and onto the paper. Then, when they stamp, they are looking for the transfer of the ink. They oohed and aahed the first couple of times they used the PhotoPs. 

 

Another thing: I got new tables, and we definitely have to use the pad now.  I used to have the heavy 6 foot wood tables, the one’s with the wood grain top.  Now I have the lighter molded plastic tables. They are great for moving around, but for the PhotoP, we definitely need the foam pads.  Just another thought.  It could be her stamping surface.

Actually some other companies’ stamps come with instructions to clean them before using – I see nothing wrong with doing that.  We wash dishes before using the first time, right?  There are chemicals left on the stamps after curing and often they don’t completely form until well after the stamp is created.  Think of what kind of fits we would be having if we had to wait for that to happen before stamps were shipped!

 

Just let people know that this is the sign of a HIGH QUALITY product that is made correctly, not cut and slice or extruded like cheaper products.

Ink Pads and Photopolymer Help

Diane Harman
In reply to this post by Catherine Harwood

Another thing I would like to mention about the photopolymer stamps, and really any of our stamps.  The new ink pads.  At club last week, the 6th or 7th lady to stamp the solid Christmas tree was not getting a good image, even using the pad.  I furrowed my brows, looked at the green ink pad, and noticed it was considerably lighter in the middle of the pad-where everyone had been inking their stamp. 

 

I grabbed a plastic spoon from the coffee area, and rubbed it back and forth both ways, like was shown on the video when re-inking our pads.  But I did not re-ink it, just redistributed the ink. 

 

She went stamping merrily on her way!

As Jenny explained -- the eraser really does help remove the by-products of the manufacturing process and give the stamp surface what I call better "tooth" to attract and hold the ink. One thing I would add: I use a white eraser as it does not leave eraser residue on the stamps -- just gives it a great surface. One rub with a white eraser when they are new and they ink great (and I use the foam piercing pad underneath always).

This has happened to me and two of my customers.  Tell her to take an eraser and rub it all over the stamps.  Clean the stamp with water to remove the little pieces of eraser.  After that she can ink up the stamp and stamp onto a piece of paper still using the foam pad.  IF it still isn't working, call Stampin' Up and they will replace the whole set.

Re: SU!: Ink Pads and Photopolymer Help

Sue Myers

Great idea for moving the ink around.  I had seen it done when adding new ink to the pad, but I like the idea of moving it around.  I find that the center does get lighter when stamping several times. 
Thanks for the hint.

Re: SU!: Re: Ink Pads and Photopolymer Help

Linda Pastva-Callahan

I've heard it suggested to put ink to the stamp, not the stamp to the ink; and yes, use the foam piercing pad underneath for full coverage.

Great idea for moving the ink around.  I had seen it done when adding new ink to the pad, but I like the idea of moving it around.  I find that the center does get lighter when stamping several times. 
Thanks for the hint.

Another thing I would like to mention about the photopolymer stamps, and really any of our stamps.  The new ink pads.  At club last week, the 6th or 7th lady to stamp the solid Christmas tree was not getting a good image, even using the pad.  I furrowed my brows, looked at the green ink pad, and noticed it was considerably lighter in the middle of the pad-where everyone had been inking their stamp. 
 
I grabbed a plastic spoon from the coffee area, and rubbed it back and forth both ways, like was shown on the video when re-inking our pads.  But I did not re-ink it, just redistributed the ink. 
 
She went stamping merrily on her way!

As Jenny explained -- the eraser really does help remove the by-products of the manufacturing process and give the stamp surface what I call better "tooth" to attract and hold the ink. One thing I would add: I use a white eraser as it does not leave eraser residue on the stamps -- just gives it a great surface. One rub with a white eraser when they are new and they ink great (and I use the foam piercing pad underneath always).

This has happened to me and two of my customers.  Tell her to take an eraser and rub it all over the stamps.  Clean the stamp with water to remove the little pieces of eraser.  After that she can ink up the stamp and stamp onto a piece of paper still using the foam pad.  IF it still isn't working, call Stampin' Up and they will replace the whole set.

I received this message from a customer -

On September 19, I ordered two bundles from you, one of which was Fall Fest. I have tried several tricks to get a clean image when stamping the pumpkins but none of my tricks work (using a foam pad, holding stamp on the paper for 10 seconds, making sure the stamp is inked up well). The color doesn't transfer evenly, it looks 'patchy'. Can you offer some advice that may provide a fix for my problem? I am disappointed that I can't figure out what to do.

Anyone have an advice that I can give to my customer?  Thank you.
