    Picking The Right Ink Combination For Your Customised Rubber Stamps

    Owning a personalised company stamp allows users to establish their own corporate branding as well as add a touch of professionalism to official documentation. However, customisation is not only limited to the rubber stamp design alone. Every aspect of design and material used can actually be customised, including the ink users pick to combine with their rubber stamp. To pick the right ink combination for different customised rubber stamps, there are certain factors to consider:

    Drying Rate

    Beginner stampers are usually recommended ink with faster drying rates so that smudging is kept to a minimum. Some examples of fast drying inks include dye based ink, chalk blended ink, solvent based ink and permanent ink. However, do note that different materials can affect the drying rate of inks as well. Permanent ink may generally dry fast compared to pigment ink. But if permanent inks are used against non-porous rates, their drying rate may last between 3 to 4 minutes.

    Resistance

    When using customised rubber stamps on legal documents, ensuring that the stamped design lasts on the stamped material without fading can be one of the factors that are highly prized. Certain inks like archival ink and permanent ink are highly recommended for their archival properties, since they possess the ability and resistance required to ensure the quality of the rubber stamped images stay for a longer while. Certain inks like blended inks can act as permanent inks too, as long as they are heat set.

    Cleaning

    Consider the customised rubber stamps that are being used by the clients- are they created with intricate carvings or simpler shapes? How difficult and tedious would cleaning the rubber stamps be? Certain inks like dye inks and blended inks are easily cleaned with water alone. However, inks like certain pigment inks, archival inks and permanent inks are recommended to be used together with professional rubber stamp cleaners on account of the fact that they place up a certain amount of resistance.

    Material used

    Certain inks can have different effects on the material used as well. Clients are advised to take that into consideration while selecting the ink combination for their customised rubber stamps- Dye inks are mostly suited for paper while permanent ink is appropriate for a wide range of surfaces including glass. Blended ink is suited for not only paper, but also fabric, shrink plastic and more whereas pigment ink can be used for polymer clay.

    Waterproof

    If ink is used on legal documents, it would be a prudent decision to ensure that the ink used on customised rubber stamps are waterproof to a certain degree. Dye inks are mostly not waterproof, except for archival inks that are used for longlasting quality protection. Pigment inks on the other hand, are mostly waterproof, though certain brands require heat setting. Permanent ink also protects the stamped image to a certain degree whereas blended inks are not.

    How To: Efficiently Apply Pearl Powder With Customised Rubber Stamps

    A little personal touch applied to product packaging or name cards with a personalised company stamp can do wonders in terms of improving branding. For users searching for new material to combine with their customised rubber stamps, pearl powder is one finishing effect that holds a lot of potential. However, there are certain application techniques required for the pearl powder to work to it’s best effect. Here’s how one can begin the process:

    Before application, decide on what effect is to be achieved with the pearl powder. Darker coloured material displays the strongest pearl shimmer where lighter material softens the pearl powder effect into something more pastel. To create backgrounds, pearl powder can be applied directly against the background, whereas using it to colour in stamped imaged require finer work with blender pens. Permanent ink is required to adhere the pearl powder application so that the effect is retained.

    Using your customised rubber stamps, stamp the patterns you desire onto the material. Users are advised to use dry brushes to dip and sprinkle over the surface of the rubber stamped patterns. For added creativity, users can consider sprinkling up to 3 different pearl powder colours onto the rubber stamped image. The pearl powder can be gently moved and blended together for an enhanced effect. Excess can be tapped off gently before the rest are left to dry together with the stamped image.

    Backgrounds and panels as well as other shapes can be attained with customised rubber stamps, ink and pearl powder. However, if users wish to create colour effects directly onto paper, pearl powder required mixing. A recommended mixture involves ⅔ pigment ink as well as ⅔ pearl powder. Once the mixture is obtained, make use of sponges to apply directly onto the material.

    Generally, once the ink dries together with the pearl powder, it does not require additional protecting. However, excess can still be found- to fully remove excess, brush over the stamped image with tissue paper lightly once more.

    How many impressions can a rubber stamp make?

    Rubber stamps are important business tools for any company. They communicate essential information about the company to customers. Also, there is the issue of the quality of impressions that stamps make. The impression made by a rubber stamp should be clear; you do not want people guessing your company’s contacts because of poor clarity. To solve this predicament- companies, businesses and insurance companies in Singapore are resorting to self-inking stamps. Interestingly, a self-inking stamp in Singapore isn’t hard to find. There are various companies who engage in making them.

    Self-inking stamps have the following advantages;

    • Self-inking stamps can be refilled more than ten times.

    • Self-inking stamps make sharper and clearer impressions.

    • The stamps can make more than 1000 impressions.

    • They are portable.

    Despite self-inking stamps making 1000 impressions per refill, there are several factors that influence how many impressions these stamps can make. It is important to understand these factors so as to answer the question, how many impressions can rubber stamps make? These factors include,

    1. Ink coverage; this represents the amount of ink an impression can take from an ink pad. This is influenced by the stamping design you are using. This depends on the boldness of the letters used. If a company uses bold and large letters on an impression it will use up more ink than a company that uses medium ink or outlined.

    2. The material used; the material used also determines the number of impressions a rubber stamp can make. Absorbent materials leave less ink point on the stamp because they tend to “sip” the ink on the stamp. This implies that when the stamp makes the subsequent impressions, there is less and less ink on the area you are stamping.

    3. Operating temperature; this is a key factor that affects the number of impressions a rubber stamp will make. In very warm conditions, ink evaporates- meaning they will make fewer impressions. In cooler temperatures, they will make more impressions because the ink will not evaporate. If you want your self-inking rubber stamp to make as many impressions as it could, it is advisable that you store it someplace cool and shady.

    4. Type of ink used on the rubber stamp; ink type will also determine the number of impressions the rubber stamp will make. Solvent based inks will dry faster meaning when used to make impressions the impressions will not be long lasting. However, water-based inks remain moist for longer provided that the documents stored are stored in the right way away from direct sunlight.

    5. Mode of use; some companies prefer to press the rubber stamps on the stamping material. This means they will use up more ink in the process. Companies who use the rubber stamps lightly are bound to make more impressions with it. The number of impressions a rubber stamp can make depends on the above factors. It is advisable for companies in Singapore to obtain self-inking rubber stamps as they make more impressions (as much as 1000 impressions) than their counterparts. Rubber stamp impressions communicate a lot about a company, SME or a business to customers.

    Print

    Here’s why you should consider using rubber stamps for your wedding invitation:

    Personal touch – Using a rubber stamp to decorate the wedding invitations adds a personal touch. Especially if it has an image of the soon to be newly-weds. The impression can also be of something that is dear to the couple. Using rubber stamps to do the wedding invitations gives the couple a chance to pass a personal message to the invitees. There is no limit as to what one can achieve when it comes to customising the rubber stamps. The freedom of customisation gives one option of making the rubber stamps as personal as can be.

    Saves time – It is a known fact that the preparations for the wedding are usually hectic. The pressure is usually more to the soon to be married couple. They usually have to make sure everything is ready and set for their big day. Incorporating rubber stamps into the activity of making wedding invitations makes everything a little bit easier, and this eases the pressure on the couple. Rubber stamps are easy to make.

    Once one has made the rubber stamp of their choice, the only task that remains after that is making impressions on the invitation cards. This is a very easy task; one could even do it with help from children. The wedding preparation party can now devote their time to other matters that are more urgent.

    Economical – Rubber stamps are relatively cheap to make. They are very easy to make. One just needs to get the stamp making machine, and they can do it from the comfort of their homes. If they do not want to purchase the machine for a single event, they can go to a local rubber stamp maker. Rubber stamp makers in Singapore charge affordable rates. You just need to take your stamp design to them or design the stamp on the spot, and the stamp will be ready in a few minutes. Going through this process is cheaper compared to hiring a graffiti artist to make the impressions on all your cards.

    Better impressions – If one uses rubber stamps on their wedding invitations, the impressions are usually very clear. This is because of the ink quality used in the making of the rubber stamps. The impressions are sharper and clearer. This leaves no room for any misunderstanding in the wedding invitation. If anyone is planning wedding invitations here in Singapore, they should go for rubber stamps because they are the better option.

    Correctly Re-Ink Self Inking Rubber Stamps

    Self inking rubber stamps are one of the best kind of customised rubber stamps anyone could own. Travel-friendly, durable and convenient, this personalised company stamp is ideal when it comes to users who require it for heavy stamping on a daily basis. However, there comes a time where even self inking rubber stamps need re-inking to prevent it from running dry. Here are some ways you can re-ink your customised rubber stamps:

    Take a look at your self inking rubber stamps- are they the type of rubber stamps that are structured with clasps on the side? If they are, these customised rubber stamps can usually be locked into place while users re-ink. Using an even surface, turn your self inking rubber stamp upside down to reveal the ink pad section. Rely on the clasps on the side of your self inking rubber stamps to fix it in place. Now you can use your rubber stamp ink and apply the required amount. Certain stamps only require up to 10 or 20 drops of the rubber stamp ink. Apply accurately depending on how much is required. Once you are done, release the clasps and set the self inking rubber stamps aside so that the ink has time to spread.

    If your self inking rubber stamps do not have clasps, you can usually remove the ink pad section for reinking. Push down on the handle of your self inking rubber stamps to reveal the ink pad section once more. Slowly but firmly remove the ink pad from the section and lay it on an even surface. Once this is achieved, you can proceed to re-ink the rubber stamp portion as evenly as possible. Allow some time for the ink to be fully absorbed. Gently ease the ink pad slot back into place and allow it to sit for a few hours.

    To check to see if you have successfully re-inked your self inking rubber stamps, apply it to clear paper to take a look at the result. If you are successful in your attempts, your rubber stamp image should be sharp with details that can be seen clearly.

    DIY Tip: Combining Shrink Plastic With Customised Rubber Stamps

    Since it’s introduction into the public markets, shrink plastic has become quite a popular material option to be combined with customised rubber stamps due to its malleable nature. Much like it’s name, shrink plastic is capable of shrinking up to 45 percent of the original size and can be purchased in several options- black, white, frosted, and clear. Here’s how shrink plastic can be combined with customised rubber stamps:

    Before beginning with anything else, ensure that the shrink plastic procured has been already sanded. If it has not, users are advised to sand down both ways and sides for easier colouring as well as preventing the shrink plastic from sticking when it is heated. Once that is done, consider colouring options that are to be paired with the shrink plastic. It is possible to proceed without sanding down the shrink plastic at the end of the day, however, users will have to exercise great caution and own a steady grip since that would mean the surfaces of the shrink plastic are slippier.

    It is imperative to note that colour often intensifies after the plastic has been shrunk. Unsanded surfaces do not take well to certain pigment or dye inks even after heat setting. Good recommendations for both sanded and unsanded shrink plastic would be ink used for archival purposes like permanent inks, archival inks, or even fluid chalk.

    Once the colouring options have been chosen, move onto preparation of the shrink plastic. Users can begin using their customised rubber stamps to stamp designs over the shrink plastic as preferred. After which, to avoid smudging, hold a heating tool above the shrink plastic for at least 15 seconds to allow prior drying before holding it closer and allowing the shrinking process to begin.

    Overstamping can also be done if users wish to obtain a coloured background for their shrink plastic. By colouring the shrink plastic first and then overstamping with their customised rubber stamps, it creates more opportunities for the inks to bond over the background. Using the rubber stamps, apply directly onto the surface and create a blend or overlay of colours before heat setting and drying the ink. Once dry, overstamp with other different types of ink to further create layers.

    While shrinking, it is normal for users to witness shrink plastic curling and twisting. It is advised for users to rely on wooden sticks, handles or tweezers to hold the material down while they move the heating tool in a circular manner for even heating.

    Shrink Plastic can be cut and trimmed before or after the colouring process. Make sure to round out the corners since the edges can become rather sharp. Users will need carving tools and a heating tool to soften the areas that they wish to trim. Using their stamped images as a guideline, slowly but surely trim it to the desired shape.

    Creating Signature Style Personalised Company Stamps- Dos and Donts

    Signature style personalised company stamps are a good rubber stamp type to consider when entertaining the thought of adding personal touches to corporate matters. Not only are they travel friendly, signature style personalised company stamps are useful for entrepreneurs who deal with the need to authorise large amounts of documentation on a daily basis. When creating signature style personalised company stamps, there are some basic guidelines to monitor so as to get the best quality one can obtain.

    Do

    Clients are required to produce a copy of their signature for the rubber stamp manufacturer to use as a guideline when it comes to creating the personalised company stamps. When creating the signature that is to be used, it would be recommended for users to do so by using black ink and keeping their signature as crisp and as clear as possible so it translates well. Other materials like felt tip markers and the like are not recommended while ballpoint pens work the most efficiently when it comes to procuring a clean signature. Do make sure that there are no stray marks so that the signature style personalised company stamps can be produced as cleanly as possible.

    Certain rubber stamp design manufacturers are willing to provide clients with their custom design software templates- so for convenience purposes, clients are encouraged to download and use the templates when they already have a copy of the signature ready. This ensures that manufacturers can produce the personalised company stamps at a faster speed since everything is print ready. Do sign according to the required size if templates are used, since enlarging or reducing signatures are not encouraged due to image resolution problems.

    Don’t

    When signing on paper, do not use paper that are crinkled or faded. The more uneven the paper material used, the likelier one would notice breaks in their signature. When scanned and used for personalised company stamps, the breaks will be highly visible so make sure the paper used for reference is even. In addition, do not use papers with lines when designing the reference signature since rubber stamp manufacturers often find it difficult to separate the user’s signature with the lines.

    Clients who are not well versed with software templates may sometimes be required to sign on forms that designers could use. Make sure to either scan or pass the signed template back to the manufacturers once completed. Pictures are rarely accepted since they cannot be made into signature stamps.

    Once the references are accepted in good condition, the rest of the procedures of creating signature style personalised company stamps are similar to what is demonstrated in creating other personalised company stamps types. Clients can arrange to collect the rubber stamps manually or have them delivered.

    Clear Professional Rubber Stamps- What To Be Prepared For

    Clear rubber stamps are one of the most commonly available type of professional rubber stamps in the market to date. If you are looking into customised rubber stamps, clear rubber stamps can be a choice to consider customising with. However, there are certain things about them that you need to understand before you do go through with purchasing them.

    Clear rubber stamps are accessible to everyone and easily customised. You can purchase them from specialty craft stores or rubber stamp design service providers at affordable prices. Some of the notable aspects of clear rubber stamps are that they are completely transparent when initially purchased, and are stored on backing sheets. The rubber stamps are slightly tacky to the touch for easy mounting purposes and can be kept without much fuss.

    Most clear rubber stamps require mounting so make sure to invest in good acrylic blocks or wood mounts. Remove your professional rubber stamps from the protective backing sheet and make sure to attach to the mount evenly. Wait and apply even pressure to adhere it properly to the mount. Once the clear rubber stamps have been mounted, they can be used like most rubber stamps. Depending on the sizes of your rubber stamps, these professional rubber stamps can be arranged and combined together on one mount so as to create more design opportunities.

    Clear rubber stamps are a popular choice since the cost of personalising them as company stamps are relatively lower compared to other traditional rubber stamps. They are also lighter and less bulky so storing and carrying them around is a convenient matter. Clear rubber stamps also provide stampers more accuracy since it is easier to gauge the stamped image through carefully monitoring through the clear surface.

    However, rubber stamp owners should also understand that these clear rubber stamps are sensitive to dirt and dust. So they should be stored securely with no exposure to either elements and washed occasionally. Certain inks used also may stain the clear rubber stamps to a certain degree- while they do not affect the rubber stamp quality, they do make it harder to gauge the position of your rubber stamped design at times. Another thing to be prepared for is that their stamped marks are often softer compared to traditional customised rubber stamps.

    If you do not require regular using, make sure to remove the clear rubber stamps carefully and reattach to the backing sheet. You can then pack these clear rubber stamps away in plastic cases like CD cases or even albums designed to keep photographs. Make sure not to bend these rubber stamps to preserve their quality!

    Applying Colour Gradients With A Personalised Company Stamp in 5 Steps

    Add another layer of dimension and creativity to your personalised company stamp design by experimenting with colour. Most corporations typically go for fixed colours like black, red, and blue for corporate matters. But if you are looking for an attention-grabbing way to establish branding, add a layer of fun to packaging and make your overall design more visually appealing- consider colour gradients. Here’s how you can apply colour gradients with your personalised company stamp:

    1. Ready made Gradients

    Presently, there are ready made multi-gradient rubber stamps available on the market. A closer look at what is available would be different shades of the same colour in one ink pad. If you have large rubber stamps, position them on top of the ink pad and gently rock from side to side with a steady hand. Do refrain from shifting the rubber stamp and lift it up when you transfer onto the material. Once you have done so, you will notice that the different gradient shades are flawlessly transferred.

    2. Custom Gradient

    To create custom gradients, it would be ideal to use additional tools like brayer style rubber stamps to roll different ink colour on specific portions of your rubber stamp. This way, the ink can be mixed on your personalised company stamp without you ruining the colour on your ink pads. If you wish to create your own custom gradients using colours that are already ready, roll your brayer style rubber stamp over different sections by first applying the base layer on one end, the second layer on the other, and rolling your brayer style rubber stamp in the middle to mix. Do a few test prints to see which your ideal shades are.

    3. Sizing

    To create colour gradients with just your personalised company stamp alone (one colour for each), measure the ink pad sizes of your multi-colour gradient ink pads. Next, make use of smaller rubber stamps to individually apply different colour shades and gradually fill up the material carefully. Make sure that when you apply the rubber stamps, you have enough space to gently rock the rubber stamps on the ink pad section to obtain the colour. Keep it within the lines of the ink pad space and make sure not to mix the ink of your ink pad when doing so.

    4. Colour Blocking

    If you intend to use 2 or more colours to create visually appealing contrast on your packaging or corporate name cards, experiment with different colours to find the right colour combination. What you can do is select the desired colours and select your customised rubber stamps. If you intend to use the same customised rubber stamps in different colours, make sure to leave small indicators of where you want which rubber stamped colour to go before applying one colour. Wash the rubber stamps and leave them to dry. Once the material is dry, you can make use of your customised rubber stamps to fill in the rest with other colours.

    5. Overlay

    To recreate the illusion of layer and depth, you can consider this optional step. Overlay your customised rubber stamps using different colours for the background and the foreground. To ensure that the colours don’t mix, make use of stray paper to block out the interconnecting sections before stamping over so that the unnecessary portion will not be printed onto the material you need. Repeat this step with different colours until you are satisfied.
