Very misleading info. Gift tags are not this size! I thought all 6 would print on 1 page!! Each gift tag fills up most of an 8 1/2 x 11!

I wouldn't normally respond to negative feedback as I respect the customer's experience and opinion, but in this case the customer has made an incorrect statement about my honesty, which I must defend. I asked the customer to explain her issue so that I could fix it but I did not get a response. I did email the file to her as a backup and trust she is enjoying it now. I would be very willing to update the listing information if I found that it was confusing or misleading customers, but in this case I have found no need to change it. I tested the listing by purchasing the product myself, from my private Etsy account, and the download file was exactly as described - it printed perfectly well.

Thank you for buying from Empire Line Stamps. Our recommended usage and care instructions for our photopolymer clear stamps are below. Please get in touch should you need more information.

<< HOW TO USE AND CARE FOR YOUR STAMPS >>

< BEFORE FIRST USE >

Remove from packaging and wash your stamp in warm soapy water to remove any residual materials from the manufacturing process. Pat dry then allow to air dry completely.

Condition your stamp by rubbing across the impression side with a pencil eraser. This will remove any residual material left after washing.

< USAGE >

To use your clear stamp it needs to be mounted on a clear acrylic block. Blocks are not included with your stamp, and should be purchased separately from a craft or art store.

The stamp will naturally cling to the block, but if adhesion reduces over time, just wet the flat back of the stamp and it will stick well again.

Clear blocks will enhance the accuracy of your stamping thanks to being able to see through the block to the medium upon which you are making an impression.

Clear stamps do not require as much force to make an impression as mounted rubber stamps. This is because there is no padding between the stamp and the stamping block. Therefore you will not need to press as hard, and pressing too hard could obscure the impression you make. Refer to ‘testing’, below.

< TESTING >

We recommend that you test your stamp on scrap paper before starting your artwork. Testing allows you to understand how the stamp works with your ink, your papers, your stamping method and in your particular environment.

All of the above factors can affect the impression outcome. Like any crafting tool, get to know your stamp so you can achieve the most satisfactory results possible.

< CLEANING >

To get the best use and longest life from your stamps, we recommend cleaning after use.

For most ink types, wash immediately after use in warm soapy water or use a specialist stamp cleaning liquid. If you have used permanent inks, your stamp will be stained. We do not recommend permanent ink removal solutions as they can erode the material of the stamp and thus ruin the impression quality.

Pat dry then allow the stamp to air dry completely before putting into storage.

< STORAGE >

If you have washed your stamp after use, wait until it is completely dry before storing.

Store away from heat or direct sunlight.

Place your stamp back between the two sheets of plastic that they came delivered in, so you can protect the material and also identify the design for future uses.

Many stampers like to store their stamps in DVD cases, with labels for easy identification. We also like to use a tabbed card filing system.

Enjoy your Empire Line Stamp. We'd love to see what you make. Please share it with us on our Facebook page. Link at top of Etsy shop page or copy and paste this link into your browser:

CONDITIONS OF PURCHASE:

Our aim is to help you make a different impression with unusual and inspiring antique style images that can be used for both digital and paper crafts.

A lot of time, effort, skill and imagination goes into creating our artworks. We therefore ask that you read our terms and conditions of use for the digital artwork you have just downloaded.

Should you have any questions or need clarification, we can be reached via Etsy convo, or by email at: empiredetalaru [!at] gmail.com.

Please note that in each stamp listing we supply the stamp image in a digital format to show what the design looks like. In some cases we also provide a photo of the stamped design on paper. Buyers should be aware that different inks, papers and environments can render stamp designs differently than what might be shown on the screen. Sometimes they can be less sharp, especially where there is a high level of ink coverage. Please expect some minor variations to your stamped image when stamping on different surfaces. If you find that your stamp does not meet your expectations, please get in touch so we can rectify the situation.

Upon purchase you are bound by the image usage rights as stated below:

>> You are free to use this image in any way in the creation of your own artwork, whether for personal use or for sale. This includes making goods for sale using our digital images and stamps.

>> Some ideas to consider are printed artworks on textured backgrounds, scrap booking, digital collage or pillow covers.

>> Original image remains copyright to the creator, Empire Line Stamps.
