I have quite a few clear birthday stamps, but still I purchased this. Why? 1. This red rubber cling, stamps way way waaaay better than my clear stamps. 2. It is in such a beautifully graceful font, apt for the fancy cards where I want the sentiment to be beautiful, and yet understated. Net net, I absolutely love this stamp! I make A LOT of birthday projects so had to have it! Stamps like a dream. Every single time.
