"when i use a rainbow pad with my brayer it always makes the colors run together.  How can i use a rainbow pad without the colors running together?"    David You need to always place the brayer on the same place on the ink pad. For example, if the left part of the brayer is on a particular color (usually the left side of the pad), it must always be re-inked that way until you choose to clean the brayer.  Also, roll the brayer over the pad, then lift it and roll again. Do this repeatedly- don't roll the brayer in a back and forth motion.  If the pad is dye ink, be SURE to store it horizontally- not on it's side. These pads will have the colors run into each other and muddy.

Just visited your store for the first time -- loved the selection! It's great to find a source of non-cute stamps.

Here's my question: have you had any experience with a re-usable mounting system? I have seen these acrylic blocks advertised that you are supposed to be able to velcro your stamps on and then reuse. I've never bought unmounted, not really wanting to deal with doing mounting myself, but this seems like a good option if it works. If you have any experience with it, or have heard good/bad things, please let me know. Thanks! -- Mike"      

Thanks, we're very proud of our large selection of stamps and related items.

I have bought unmounted stamps and used the cling vinyl technique. I must admit, at first I was happy but as time went on, the vinyl curved a little and often lost the "cling". Although still usable, I find I really like mounted stamps best. They just seem to be more accessible and at hand.  I still do get unmounted on occasion but if there's a stamp i know I will be using a lot I go for the mounted version, if available. I have never used the velcro system, but I have heard some good things about. Takes a little more organizing, and of course the stamps aren't indexed as you use the same block for many stamps. You may want to go on the stamping bulletin boards (such as Gingerwood- see our links) and inquire there. Hope this helps!  Phyllis

"Hi. My name is Donna and I am currently living in Maryland.  I am in college and will soon be moving to Queens to live and go to school.  For the last 4 years I have been working at Trifles(don't know if you have heard of us) and I have really been spoiled with classes, etc.  Fortunately, there is a store in NYC! I have been to The Ink Pad; last November if I can recall correctly).  I do receive your Newsletter; just today!  So I checked out your site and here I am!  Anyhow, I will be visiting your shop sometime in the beginning of June and I was wandering if you have any demos planned or classes that I could catch when I stop by. 

I am so glad that there is a stamp store in NYC!!! Thanks again!!!
