You will need to use a sol­vent­based ink such as StazOn for the im­age that you stamp onto ac­etate as this will dry rel­a­tively quickly and the ink will not smudge the way other inks will.

If you are us­ing a tem­plate to cre­ate your magic slider card, you will need to be quite ac­cu­rate with your mea­sure­ments or it will not run smoothly and may stick. How­ever, if you don’t want to have the has­sle of hav­ing to measure and cut tem­plates out, there are var­i­ous magic slider card dies avail­able which just need a quick pass through your die-cut­ting ma­chine.

If you have a stamp po­si­tioner or stamp­ing plat­form, this will help en­sure you get your im­age in the correct po­si­tion for both the pocket and the ac­etate over­lay, es­pe­cially when stamp­ing mul­ti­ple im­ages.

Don’t just think the slider needs to come from the top; you can also po­si­tion it to pull hor­i­zon­tally from the sides or from the bottom.

If you are go­ing to place any pa­pers or em­bel­lish­ments on top of your slider, make sure you do not ob­struct the open­ing, oth­er­wise the slider will not come out.
