Please tell me I’m not the only one that has problems removing stamps from blocks sometimes. I’ve heard from a few of you who have this problem, so it seemed like a good reason to share my tips and tricks for solving this problem and preventing it from happening again. Let’s talk about it!
The Problem – Your Stamp Gets Stuck To Your Block
Sometimes a stamp just doesn’t want to come off of a block. The cling labels on our rubber stamps are awesome and I love them, but sometimes they cling a little too well.
Here are a few tricks for getting them off, and make sure to read to the bottom to learn how to prevent this from happening!
How To Get A Stamp Off The Block
Try these tips next time you have a stubborn stamp!
1. Feel around on different sides, and find a portion that isn’t stuck as badly
2. Use a fingernail to press against the block and lift the label and the stamp off
3. No fingernails? Use a plastic credit card, store membership card, or similar item to press against the block and lift it off.
