FAQs

What are the differences in your mounting options?

Whipper Snapper Designs offers three different mount options to their retail customers.

  1. Cling Mount Stamps (Unpackaged) - These images have been molded out of red rubber and are adhered to a cling mount foam for use with acrylic blocks. Designs have been cut approximately 1/8" around the outline of the image with a jigsaw. No image reference sheets are included.  Images are shipped without a carrier/ storage sheet.
  2. Cling Mount Stamps (Packaged) - These images have been molded out of red rubber and are adhered to a cling mount foam for use with acrylic blocks.  Designs have been cut approximately 1/8" aroung the outline of the image with a jigsaw.  The stamp is packaged with a full color reference insert but no carrier/storage sheet.  Please note that all images are not available in a packaged format.
  3. Unmounted Stamps (Unpackaged) - These images have been molded out of red rubber. They are rough cut and require the customer to trim and adhere the image to products of their choosing. No image reference sheets are included. Please note that stamping detail will be affected if you are just stamping with an unmounted image. It is highly suggested that you mount these images with a cushion to eliminate stamping difficulties.

Why is there a hole cut out of my stamp?

Customers will contact us stating that their stamp is defective because it has a hole cut out of it.  As a coutesy to our customers, WSD cuts out large surface areas of our stamp images.  This helps to prevent the transfering of ink to your paper due to ink that has accidentally touched that area.
