Tips on using your Raisin Boat stamp sets


How to use your stamps 

  • Peel stamp from the backing sheet carefully to avoid tearing.
  • Place stamp on a clear, acrylic block (sold separately). Stamp will cling naturally. Be sure to use a block that is closest in size to your image for best results.
  • To stamp multiple images at once, position several designs on the same block before inking.
  • After cleaning, peel stamp from block and replace on backing sheet. Re-use your blocks for the next image!


How to care for your stamps

  • Gently wipe stamp on a damp cloth. To restore clingability, wash in warm water with mild liquid soap and air dry. * 
  • Store stamps on their set's backing sheet, out of direct light and extreme heat or cold.


*It’s normal for stamps to stain from dark colors or permanent inks. This will not affect stampability – it just means they’re well loved! Do not use acetone, bleach, or oil-based cleaners.


How to return rentals

  • Make sure all stamps are clean and accounted for on the backing sheet (count and compare images with reverse side of the Stamp Use and Care instructions in your package).  The easiest way to do this is by holding the package insert under your plastic backing sheet while you match up the images.
  • Slip the set into the original plastic package. Return in the provided postage-paid return envelope.
  • For your convenience, there is a separate return envelope for each set in your possession.


Keep your rental set for even less than your already-reduced member pricing!
