My luck with clear stampers

Contains product sent for review

I am just not having much luck with clear stampers! I want them to work so badly, because how smart are they?! I love the idea of being able to see how you are positioning your image.

However, not even on the third attempt at finding a good one have I had any luck.

First, I bought this one which only seemed to pick up parts of the images half of the times.

Then, I bought this one for my mom for christmas, but she didn’t have much luck with this one either – she says it didn’t pick up anything at all.

When I was given the chance to review this one, I thought: “Okay, last chance.”

Unfortunately, this didn’t turn out to be the stamper that salvaged all clear stampers for me. It picked up some of the bigger images okay-ish half of the times, but smaller images and thinner lines was a no go. I mean, I have a silicone stamper and a regular stamper that works just fine for me, so I know it’s not my technique that’s wrong.

I tried using it with several different stamping plates – both from Born Pretty Store and two other companies, but it was all the same.

Given that this is my third unsuccesful attempt at finding a clear stamper – and the fact that all three have come from Born Pretty Store – I do not have much confidence in their clear stampers, and I will be looking towards other companies when I am buying stampers in the future.

    I have only one clear stamper from BPS and I have the same experience as yours. If I roll it over the image with a feather-light touch, it might work, but it’s so finicky I’ve moved on and never use it anymore. I use the big blue clear stamper from Aliexpress, and there are very few images it can’t pick up clearly. Maybe give that one a try?

      Thank you for the tip! I was contemplating buying one of the more expensive ones from bundle monster or something, but I will check out the one you mention!

    I have this one too, and I can barely get it to pick up anything – no matter what plate or polish. Such a waste of money. I totally agree, BornPretty stampers tend to be on the shitty side.

      Yes, it is really annoying, because other clear stampers are pretty expensive, so I was hoping the cheaper options would work..
