I'm having trouble getting some of my EZ mounted stamps to stick to my acrylic blocks.  I think they probably need a clean or something.  Does anyone know what I should clean them with in order to enhance rather than destroy the static cling?  I have tried cleaning the blocks with baby wipes but that doesn't seem to have solved the problem and as it happens on varioius different blocks i think the problem must be with the Ez mount or Kling On or whatever it was I stuck on the back.  

Also, does anyone use the stuff you stick to the blocks rather than the rubber stamps and if so does it work well? Am wondering if I should switch to that system

I don't really use EZ mount or anything else so won't offer advice here. I mount straight on the block then for real rubber i use a thick foam pad beneath the card/paper. Works for me and saves time/money too.

I've had the same ploblem with Kling on - I ended up re-mouning though,  I'm afraid.  I love Vonny's idea though.

I am also having the same problem with Kling On and also wth some Hero Arts Cling Stamps.  As the problem affects both I assumed it was the "dirt" on my acrylic blocks, so i washed each one very carefully with Fairy Liquid and dried them all properly, but I am still having probems.

I have to say I do like the print I get with Kling On, never quite the same when I put the rubber on the block and use a foam block underneath.  Perhaps I need some practice as Vonny's images always look good.

I've only got one Hero arts cling stamp but it has been problematic right from the beginning, although it wasn't cheap.

I contacted Hero Arts about issues with one of mine and they replaced it free of charge.

Thank you for your kind words Jennie  Smile Perhaps woever manufacturers Kling on could give advice? I know with clear stmps that I wash them to get them to be sticky again, although tend not to be as good as usual.
Perhaps worst case scenario you could put some re postitionable glue on the back

I've had to resort to repositional glue, but it makes the acrylic block so sticky, which was my reason for using Kling On.  I even have the proper Kling On acrylic for storing the stamps too, but it still doesn't seem to help.  I'll try and remember to email Jennie at the Artistic Stamper for some tips as she is the producer of Kling On.

The blocks can get a bit sticky but can easily be washed. The xyron I use isn't too bad. It's worse of I use glue stick for those stamps where I just need a temporary hold. I haven't tried the Herma that I used for scrapbooking, these little dots are easy to rub off if they go where they shouldn't - might be worth a go.

I used to use the method that Vonny describes but after seeing the results I got at the Retreat last year, using the same stamps but there they were mounted on EZ Mount/Kling On/U-Mount I have bitten the bullet and gone over to that system.  The impressions I am getting now are much better.

As for the problem of lack of cling, there is a trick for making Kling-On cling more reliably, so for anyone with stamps mounted on Kling-On - if you huff on your block before slapping the stamp on it will stick as well as a stamp that is on EZ-Mount or U-Mount.  This is a piece of advice I was given and, having tried it, think it is worth passing on.

I still have a glue stick standing by though Laughing

Haven't looked back since I started to "huff" ...... it really does work.  Even my big Tim Holtz flourish stayed on the block.

Really nice to have something that works...and is free! Just don't hyperventilate if using a lot of stamps! Laughing
