Indexing


Can't read those stamps backwards, huh? Well here is the solution. Index them!


Here is what you need:

A new stamp set
Black StazOn
Kai Scissors





Remove the release paper from the SMOOTH side of the ez mount foam. Lay the rubber plate on the side with release paper still on. Lin up the bottom right corner and cut the stock number off the right corner. This unique cut will help you keep the index as close to were the actual image will be on the flip side. It works as a registration mark.








Lay foam smooth side up and ink the rubber plate with StazOn.











Flip the inked rubber plate over and stamp the rubber plate onto the smooth side of the foam. Be sure to line up that cut that you made in the previous step.














Pull up the plate and clean it.











Peel the release off the sticky side and adhere the plate. Be sure to line up that registration cut.












Cut your stamps as usual. Don't look at the backside! You need to cut looking at the rubber images.











Here are your stamps all cut and trimmed.














And here they are indexed! Much easier to read!
Happy Stamping.
