Stamps that Every Small Business Owner Needs

Operating a business involves juggling many moving pieces. No matter how big or how small your business is, finding ways to make your presentation and processes more efficient and professional is critical.

For this reason, we have gathered the four kinds of stamps that every business owner needs, and we go through the different ways in which each one can be used to upgrade your procedures.

Address Stamps

Address stamps include your business name or name as well as the address of your business. You can further customize the stamp with your logo, elements of your brand aesthetic—making this a great option for increasing brand recognition and presenting a professional look.

While digital forms and processes are becoming more and more popular, there are still several instances in which paperwork must be completed and sent by hand. An address stamp enables you to have an efficient way to include your address as a letterhead or as a return address, and it also produces a highly professional appearance.

Below are some examples when an address stamp would be useful for your business:

  1. Letterhead
  2. Thank-you notes
  3. Business cards
  4. Return address
  5. Contracts
  6. Packing slips
  7. Sales orders receipt books

Date Stamps

Date stamps come with movable bands for the month, day, and year, making it easy to change the date and stamp any variety of documents.

These stamps are useful for both one-off instances—but they are even more helpful when it comes to repeat stamping. If you have a stack of papers that need to include the date on them, this self-inking stamp avoids fatigue while also saving time on stamping high volumes of items.

For example, many businesses, including those in the restaurant industry, need to record inventory either every day or weekly. Utilizing a self-inking date stamp to record the date makes sure that the date is legible, and it also speeds up the process.

Below are additional examples for date stamp usage throughout your regular processes:

  1. Invoices
  2. Packing slips
  3. Records
  4. Permits
  5. Notices
  6. Contracts
  7. Letters
  8. Inventory
  9. Receipts
  10. Food Packages

Signature Stamps

Are you often signing important documents or signing off on procedures? Handwriting signatures can become time-consuming if needing to sign off on several documents at once. If a large portion of your day-to-day paperwork requires a signature, you can utilize a signature stamp to make processes more efficient.

Customize a signature stamp with your signature, or even make a few different ones for team members who often need to mark their signature on documents and inventory. Each signature stamp displays a clear impression of your exact signature.

Below are several instances in which signature stamps may be used in your business setting:

  1. Employee contracts
  2. Signing off on inventory
  3. Other business contracts
  4. Notarization of licenses and permits
  5. Paychecks
  6. Letters and notices
  7. Inventory
  8. Packing slips
  9. Thank-you notes

Bank Stamps

Perhaps one of the most useful types of stamps your business can have is a variety of bank stamps. This is useful for accounting purposes and to mark the validity of documents and checks, and it can also help organize, keep track of, and mark the status of payments, checks, and much more.

Bank stamps come in different styles with a range of colors, body styles, and text to choose from. Select a stamp that says anything from “For deposit only” and “Certified true copy” to “Void” and “Paid.”

One key type of bank stamp is the endorsement stamp, which assists in keeping the documentation of checks traceable and legible. All you must do is customize the endorsement stamp to include your account number, name, or the name of your business. In this way, each check with this unique stamp will ensure that it cannot be cashed if ending up in the wrong hands.

Below are several examples when bank stamps can be utilized for verifying documents and checks—and remaining organized:

  1. Paychecks
  2. Checks
  3. Account statements
  4. Banking statements
  5. Account summaries
  6. Bank teller documents

As you are thinking about improving your small business processes, it’s important to review all of the tasks that you and your team go through daily. While it might not seem like much at the time, those repetitive tasks can end up taking more time than anticipated. Stocking up on key business stamps and stamp pads can not only save you time, but can ensure that all records, letters, and documents appear as professional and legible as possible.
