Name stamps are an efficient way to sign documents, add branding, or personalize your possessions. Whether you’re trying to quickly process a pile of paperwork at the office or add a bit of flair to your housewares, a custom name stamp is a low-cost way to leave your mark.
Types of Name Stamps
Name stamps are a broad category of rubber stamps that includes signature stamps and monogram and address stamps.
Monogram stamps can be customized with personal information like your initials, name, and address. You can choose a basic monogram with just your initials, or a more intricate stamp that includes your name, address, and an image of your choice.
This versatility in stamp design means this name stamp can be used for a wide range of applications. In addition to your everyday correspondence, monogram stamps can also be used to personalize event-specific stationery like holiday cards and wedding invitations.
Wood handle monogram stamps are popular for their classic look and feel, and allow you to change ink colors whenever you want. You also have the option of purchasing a self-inking monogram stamp, which comes pre-loaded with your choice of ink. Although this limits you to one ink color, it is more portable than the wood handle version because you don’t need separate ink pads for re-dipping.
Address & Return Address Stamps
Not all address stamps are designer or include a monogram. Basic address stamp designs are popular for shipping, official documents, and other business applications. This type of name stamp allows you to neatly add your return address to envelopes as well.
Signature stamps allow you to create a clear impression of your signature quickly and efficiently every time. They come in a variety of sizes to fit your needs.
Similar to monogram stamps, signature stamps are available in both wood handle and self-inking varieties. For heavy use like stamping checks, we recommend the self-inking option so you don’t have to re-ink after each impression.
