Pre ink Stamps; the “Do Not” List
Almost all, if not all workplaces, use stamps to properly sign and attest documents for official use. Stamps are a key entity of a workplace and therefore it is highly essential for us to take the way we use stamps seriously in order to get the most out of our stamps. Pre ink stamps in recent times for that matter have made a huge splash in the office work, with it being the primary choice of many upon many offices. The following is a list of things you are advised to not do with your Pre ink stamp in order to ensure the maximum health of your stamp and in general a better hassle-less experience.
Do not remove the stamp title (the paper that identifies what the stamp prints):
How many times does it happen in the office workplace where we need to know whose stamp this is and we can't read the backward writing at the bottom of the stamp either because we are well, not very well trained at it or simply because the ink clusters, gathered around the nameplate make it harder to read? To make sure no one has to face this problem, it can become particularly annoying for individuals with multiple titles therefore multiple stamps, a stamp title slip exists at the very top of the self-inking ink which is essentially a paper slip with the impression of the stamp written of it. It is highly important not to remove it, as otherwise, as it is highly likely you'll face the aforementioned problems.
Do not repeatedly remove and insert the ink cartilage:
The ink cartilage of the pre ink stamp requires changing after a period of time unless you wish to change your nameplate in which case that can be changed as well but that usually seldom happens. Removing the ink cartilage is not a difficult task but this doesn't mean one should keep removing and inserting the cartilage when the stamp is not in use and when it is about to be in use respectively. This after all defeats the purpose! The other main reason is that this is bad for the health of your stamp as it can loosen up the ink cartilage holder and can also create a bit of a mess! Only remove the cartilage when you absolutely have to.
Do not use on rough surfaces or places that may dislodge the nameplate:
This is an extremely important step to consider. When using a pre ink stamp, we sometimes see that the stamp impression is uneven, i.e. one portion of the stamp is much more vivid and clear than the other. This is usually because of uneven pressure being applied on the stamp. This problem doesn't occur in the pre ink stamp as all the pressure is equally regulated to ensure an even spread. However by the continuous and exaggerated use of the stamp over rough, highly uneven surfaces the nameplate can be dislodged which will make the stamp give uneven and inconsistent impressions.
