I'll never go back to the thick acrylic blocks! These work so much better! Still as sturdy as the thick blocks, but easier to handle and line up and you can really feel that you've made contact with what you're stamping on. The variety of sizes is also great, as the closer the size of the image is to the blok, the better. Excellent, excellent product!!
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Exact
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
Items are much thinner thank I expected them to be and have sharp corners. But they will do a fair job with card making and using with clear stamps.

I purchased these acrylic blocks thinking they were the size of individual blocks that can be purchased in the craft stores. These blocks are perfect in their width, but are only 1/4" deep. This depth is impossible for me to use as they are too "thin" and make it very hard to get a good impression when stamping. I probably won't even use them............... The photographs are very misleading to me and I went back and reread the description and still did not see the thickness of the acrylic blocks listed. Overall, wasted money for me.
The blocks are about 1/8" thick making them a little harder to use the most blocks but for the price, this was a good deal. I usually have several stamps mounted at once when I work on paper crafting projects so this item made it cheaper than buying several other blocks at the hobby/craft stores.
Although these cling stamp blocks are much thinner than other brands, they offer many advantages. They are less bulky, saving valuable storage. They weigh less, making them much handier for scrapbook outtings and most importantly, they come in a great selection of useful sized and clean up nicely. Slim, trim and functional!
They sure are then Tim Holtz! I guess when the rubber or clear stamp is put on it will be higher from the paper and thus easier to use. I got these for the grid markings to be used to make a background pattern on a greeting card. Apply two or three colors of ink from the pad onto the grid side, then put the cardstock or layer on the inked grid for an indication-design. Stamp a silhouette or darker image on top; you be the designer. The two tiny blocks are REALLY tiny. Just to let you know. May make a nice design with ink on the grid also.
