I have a gew clear stamps, but I just don't like them as much as my wood mount stamps. In fact, if I can get the stamp I want in the wood mount, that is what I go for everytime.
Which one do you prefer?

I always prefer clear. Not even cling mounted rubber. I don't have any wood mounted rubber and I really don't like my cling mounted rubber. I am so clumsy that I must be able to see through the stamps. My hands have been so shaky lately, that I've even been using just my footed stamp block so I can be more in control before I apply pressure.

I usually get clear stamps. I have a few cling mounted rubber stamps and a couple of wooden stamps but I just would not have the space for all of them to be wooden ones. I love having a big selection, and I can keep all of my cling ones in a file folder easily. Still love wooden stamps though, they usually give a better image first time.

I know what you mean about loving red rubber and wood mounted stamps. But like the others, these days I go for clear stamps so that I can position them exactly where I want them.

Clear are my least favorite. Just not the same quality. I LOVE rubber stamps (either wood mount or cling mount). Those are my "go to" stamps for sure.

Red rubber fan. The rubber can be removed from the wood and attached to a foam mounting system which then gets used on an acrylic block.

Clear for me too. love that I can tell if I am getting a good image. However, I do have a couple of red rubber stamps I love but mt collection is mostly clear.

Definately clear here too! I also sue vesramark before color and a foam pad to get great impressions. I do own some red rubber and wood mounted and use a stampa-ma-jig to get prefect placement every time!!

I posted on my blog last year on how I store my cling and unmounted stamps. http://mjskraze.blogspot.com/2013/05/stamps-storage-review.html . It is basically a product review. I still use this system and the same two binders.

I definitely prefer Rubber stamps. I like cling mounted best because they are much easier to store than wood mounted. Placement is not an issue. I use a stamp-a-ma-jig when needed and get perfect placement every time. Rubber is also much more forgiving and withstands heat and solvents well, so there are many more options available when it comes to variety of techniques. Especially when venturing into mixed media. I have recently started purchasing photopolymer since I really like alot of the Lawn Fawn stamps. I can't see them ever replacing my red rubber though.

I have a ton of wood mounted stamps, but don't use them as much anymore. I prefer clear if they are Gina K and foam mounted otherwise. It's just so much easier to line them up by eye. There are some clear stamps
that are not of good quality though, I've found Technique Tuesday and Gina K's clear to be of very high quality. I use them a lot!
