Re-Inking and Maintaining your Stamp

Rubber Stamps are amazingly durable- which means that they're very easy to care for. However, they do require some minimal maintenance.

Question: How do I re-ink my stamp?

A: Its very simple. Just take a look at this easy re-inking Diagram. When re-inking your stamp, keep this in mind: While it may make up to 50,000 impressions between refills, most stamps only require between 2 to 6 drops of ink.

Question: How do I change my stamps ink color?

A: You can't. Many of the ink formulas are different and they may not mix. The result? A really blurry impression. That's because the pores in our stamps (the little tiny holes that hold all of the ink) may become clogged when you try another ink formula. Also, you may not get a true color, since you are essentially mixing two colors. In other words, you can't go from black to red. You wont get a true red

Question: Do I have to use brand ink?

A: Yes, that's what we recommend. All brands of ink are not the same. The formulas are different, and another brand's formula may not mix with your pre-inked stamp. Also, some inks are now truly ink, but are actually a softening agent, which releases ink from within the product. This type of ink will not work at all, and in fact may damage your stamp.

Question: How do I clean off the residue from my stamp?

A: Occasionally, you may see lint or paper dust on your stamp surface. The good news is that it is easy to clean. Simply place a piece of cellophane tape across the die of the stamp, rub your finger over the tape, then remove the tape. The tape will lift off the residue and you're off and stamping again.
