As for cleaning your stamps, I would think if you could stick to maybe just water, it would be best? Nothing that would dry them out any more than they already are?

Thanks, I think you are right.  I wish there was something I could do to re-hydrate the rubber -- but when I use it, it makes these cool looking distressed cracks on the image, so maybe not.  Wink

Don't get too excited -- remember I said that they were probably used in an office.  They are cool, but not that cool.  Wink

I really like old office-y type stamps, though. Some of my favorite stamps are from Office Max. I would love it if they were actually vintage.

From what little I know about rubber stamps, you need to "recondition" them... google is your friend in this area (as I believe I've read about this on our friend, the internet, before... can't remember where now exactly, of course...).

I just did a very cursory search... someone else asked your same question here and someone else answered them here. That's the very first hit I saw... you could probably find more out there with a more thorough search that I just did.

Keep us posted if you find anything and I'll look more tonight if I remember. I've got one or two old ones that could probably use some TLC.

I have a lot of vintage stamps that were used to price things, like in a grocery store. I love them! I can't wait to see your images. Cheesy


BTW, I'm working on an idea and I need a vintage telephone type image. Can anyone help a craftsta out?

Vintage telephone, or the type that they used on the dial? Have you tried RubberCity? They have cute old fans and some other vintage images in stamps. I'm just not real clear on what you're looking for.

Thanks for looking ladies. I really just need a pic of a receiver. If all else fails, I'll just wing it. Cheesy

This is seriously embarrassing. I have so much craftsh*t that I forgot I have an issue of "Craphound" that has about 20 pages of telephone clip art. Yeah, shop much?  hehe.

BTW, I received AR's book from Racky today. I now have two journals in my sweaty little mitts.
