Stamping accuracy can be improved with time as you familiarise yourself with the dimensions of your own customised rubber stamps. However, there are certain steps you can undertake to shorten the amount of time you need to improve your accuracy. Here are some tips you can try out to accurately position your customised rubber stamps:
If accuracy is needed on a consistent basis when it comes to your stamping process, then you should highly consider getting a stamp positioner for your customised rubber stamps. These positioners come in a variety of types, designed to help users align, center and layer their customised rubber stamps in such a way that leaves no room for mistakes. Create patterns, achieve intricate detailing and perfectly position your customised rubber stamps today!
A classic rubber stamp positioning tool consists of handles on each side with a right angle, as well as reusable imaging sheets. To begin using them, stamp your customised rubber stamps into place for starters. Next, place the imaging sheets against the inner corner of the rubber stamp positioning handle and ink the rubber stamp. Place the top corner of your rubber stamp block onto the corner of your rubber stamp positioning handle and stamp onto your imaging sheet. You can create a layering mark for your customised rubber stamps by stamping images over removable tap and cutting the shape before adhering it over your stamped image.
Once you are done, you can wipe your imaging sheets with damp cloth or even baby wipes so that they can be reused.
If you are using a stamp press based positioning tool however- note that it consists of an acrylic grid that is raised on 4 feet to resemble traditional printing press. The “feet” exist to hold your customised rubber stamps above your paper while you prepare to stamp, so when you push down, the stamps would touch paper and successfully stamp your image.
When positioning customised rubber stamps with stamp presses, place your clear rubber stamps directly onto the stamp press by using the grid present for your alignment. Adhere the stamp to your stamp press before you ink them and press down to stamp. If you have smaller details for your customised rubber stamps, make sure to stamp them one at a time so you can keep track of their position by looking through the stamp press.
