introducing cling mount stamps by stampin up

November 2018 VIP Host Code: CQHEC9EJ

The biggest announcement during OnStage was that our red rubber products (wood-mount and clear-mount stamps) will no longer be manufactured. Instead, a new red rubber product, called cling-mount, will be available in addition to Photopolymer stamps. We first introduced cling mount stamps in Japan starting with the 2018 annual catalog and found that the new stamp line was a smashing success. We are excited to offer cling stamps in all other markets beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure.

Here’s a cute little commercial that debuted at OnStage last week.

Important product transition details:

  • Beginning with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available in either cling or photopolymer.
  • Stamps in the 2018-2019 (current) annual catalog will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount, or photopolymer.
  • Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalog (which is retiring in May 2019) that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalog. Watch for more information about carryover stamp sets in April 2019 with the regularly scheduled communication about catalog transitions, the carryover list, and the retiring products list.
  • In 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps* will no longer be available. The only exception is background stamps in North America only, which will still be available in wood-mount.

What stamps will be offered in cling-mount?


Why has Stampin’ Up decided to discontinue wood-mount stamp sets?

Wood-mount stamp set sales have been steadily declining for several years. Stampin’ Up! research and sales teams took this and several other factors into consideration before discontinuing wood-mount stamps. We are confident the transition to cling stamps will be beneficial in many ways for demonstrators, customers, and the company.

How do I…

…apply the labels to the cling-mount stamps? How do I apply cling-mount stamps to the blocks? How do I remove cling-mount stamps from the blocks? How do I clean them? In this video, Natalie White from our home office shows you how to care for your new cling-mount stamps.

  1. I think this is a great idea! I hardly ever order wood stamps anyway, except in the background stamps. One reason is the cost and another is that you have to position a sticker on the wood piece and then be very accurate where you place the stamp on the opposite side. However, since the Stamparatus, I have been ordering background stamps in the clear mount so it can be placed where I want it. Personally, the photopolymer are my favorite because of ease of use and cost, but all Stampin UP stamps are high quality. I look forward to using the new stamps.

    1. I’m super excited for this change! I think from a marketing perspective it’ll be better as well. I can’t tell you how many times “clear-mount” has confused people when they learn it’s really red rubber. I’ve been calling clear-mount stamps cling-mount for awhile now in an effort to reduce confusion. I’m happy SU is addressing the issues with the stamps not sticking to the blocks too.

  2. This new technology is exciting. Would like to see a demo of these new stamps with the Stamparatus. Thanks for sharing, Stacey!

  3. Thank you so much for the informational video. Can you tell me what set the trees are from that you used in the video?
