How to Make a Custom Rubber Stamp

Custom rubber stamps are handy tools for crafters, businesses, and everyday life. Creating a rubber stamp is simple. All you need to do is choose the stamp type and design it in our user-friendly tool.

What is a Rubber Stamp?

Rubber stamps allow users to create crisp, clear impressions of addresses, dates, logos, and other designs.

Types of Rubber Stamps

Rubber stamps can have different types of stamp bodies. Some of the most common types of rubber stamps are wood handle, self-inking, and pre-inked.

Wood Handle Stamps

Wood handle rubber stamps have a traditional look and feel, but are one of the most versatile types of rubber stamps. They have more ink options than self-inking or pre-inked stamps because they use separate ink pads. You can switch between different colors or types of ink, including fabric inks and inks suitable for use on the skin

Additionally, wood handle stamps also have more options when it comes to sizing. The stamp images range in size from 1/4 inch to 7 1/2 inches. This wide range in size makes them useful for a variety of purposes.

Their affordability and flexible design have made them popular for office work, manufacturing, events, and personal use. This includes wedding invitations and other correspondence.

Self-Inking Stamps

Self-inking rubber stamps offer a quick and clean way to make an impression. Unlike wood handle stamps, the self-inking stamp has a built-in ink pad, so you don’t need to manually ink the stamp with each use. This ink pad is good for over 7,000 impressions, and you can replace or re-ink it to further extend its product life.

Self-inking rubber stamps are ideal for stamping multiple papers or products simultaneously. They can create numerous high-quality impressions without requiring re-inking. 

The self-inking stamp is available in a variety of sizes and ink colors.

Pre-Inked Stamps

Pre-inked stamps are good for 50,000 impressions and have ink built into the stamps themselves. This eliminates the flipping motion of the self-inking stamp and allows for even faster stamping. 

This durable stamp is great for industrial use, like stamping return addresses or marking with a brand logo.

Like the self-inking stamp, the pre-inked stamp offers different options for sizing and ink color.

How to Make a Rubber Stamp

When making a rubber stamp, we attach the stamp body to a piece of laser-engraved rubber. To use a stamp, apply ink to the rubber image. Then, press the stamp onto paper or another surface. This will create the design.

At StampMaker, you can select your stamp body and type of stamp online. You will then receive directions to the appropriate stamp design system to customize your text and/or design. This will be laser engraved into the rubber of the stamp for high-quality, smudge-resistant impressions.
