Taylored Expressions stamps are made from high quality pink rubber right here in the USA. The deeply etched rubber provides a crisp impression every time! One of the most valuable features of the TE stamps is that they come on EZ Mount cling cushion (which has a lifetime guarantee) and they are already die cut. Each set will come closely trimmed so there is no need to spend your time cutting out the images from a sheet of rubber!
How do I use my Taylored Expressions stamps?
Because the Taylored Expressions stamps are unmounted, you will need an acrylic block in order to use them. Just peel the stamp from the storage panel and place it on the acrylic block. Apply ink and stamp. When you're finished, clean your stamps with stamp cleaner, wipe dry, and place the stamp back onto the storage panel. If the back of your stamp loses its stickiness, wipe with a damp towel and let air dry. If that doesn't solve the problem, please contact us as our EZ Mount cling cushion has a lifetime guarantee.
How should I store my Taylored Expressions stamps?
Each stamp set comes packaged on a laminated binder ready storage panel with a color printed index. The unmounted stamps stick directly to the back of the panel which fits inside our Stamp Storage Binder Box.

We've created a recipe for you to reference the various "sandwiches" for die-cutting with Taylored Dies using three die-cutting machines.
Please note: when using detailed dies on the Cuttlebug or Big Shot, we have found that adding the Metal Adapter Shim to your sandwich provides a crisp, clean cut.
Here's a video using the Metal Adapter Shim with a detailed die:

About Our Impression Plates
Taylored Impressions are made from American steel, manufactured in the U.S., and they work in nearly every leading die-cutting machine including the Cuttlebug by ProvoCraft and BigShot by Sizzix.
Each of our impression plates features a dual-sided design. The pattern on each side of the plate is raised which will yield an impression (similar to letterpress)
when you send it through your machine. They do not emboss the cardstock with a raised image.
Each plate is generously sized at 4.5" x 5.75" making it the ideal size to cover an entire card front. You'll also want to pick up our Embossing Pad Kit, a set of 2 embossing pads sized for use with our impression plates. Please be aware that because of the dual-design on these impression plates, they can be damaged under too much pressure. Follow the guide below for optimal results.
