Picking The Right Ink Combination For Your Customised Rubber Stamps

    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.
