Question & Answer: Why Do I Get A Splotchy Image When I Stamp?Posted by Christine Miller on Aug 20, 2013 in Question and Answer, Uncategorized | 2 comments
Question: Why doesn’t my stamp make a clear image?
Answer: Sometimes a solid stamp, especially when it is new, can leave a splotchy image like the one above. There is an easy to fix this slight problem. There is a film left on the rubber as part of the production process and it seems like it is more obvious on a stamp with more surface area. All you have to do is sand the stamping surface and then it will give you a nice image.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Sanding Block to lightly sand the stamp’s surface. You can also use an emery board or even use a pencil eraser to rub the surface. All you need is a “very light” sanding to remove the film. You only have to do this once and then your stamp will give you a great image.
