Custom Rubber Stamps
Custom rubber stamps can be made personalized for you, whether it be a logo, signature, return address, or more. There are many ways to use them. One can also use it for decorative purposes.
Rubber stamps have really come a long way. At one time, only pre made stamps were available and you had to use an ink pad with them. Now, stamps can be found in a multitude of shapes, sizes and styles and you can even order custom rubber stamps for personal or business use.
They are available in the traditional rubber stamp, self inking and handy pre-inked models. One can easily order a custom made rubber stamp from the comfort of their home by going online.
Pre-inked and Self Ink Rubber Stamps
Pre-inked custom rubber stamps store the ink in the dye and self inking stamps will have a built in stamp pad which can usually be refilled. This makes them more economical than pre-inked, which will only make as many impressions as is determined at time of manufacturing. Traditional rubber custom made stamps are the cheapest of the three as you can use a stamp pad.
The pad will last you an eternity as long as you don’t let it dry out by leaving it open. The only drawback to the non-inked stamp is that you have to make sure to use even pressure when inking to get a good imprint whereas the self and pre-inked will create fairly clean lines.
The popularity of scrapbooking has made it possible to find almost any style of rubber stamp. With each style you can create beautiful works of art, each page made unique by the application of a different stamp. Custom rubber stamps can be made to personalize your pages even more. Create theme pages by using a single custom stamp or grouping them together based on the theme of the pictures. Use wedged rubber stamps to decorate the pages corners.
Homemade wedding invitations are another great use for rubber stamps. Professionally printed invitations tend to all be relatively the same, but invitations personalized by the bride and groom will add a very special touch.
