Re: Stamping papers
I'm using ordinary office stamps of vulcanized rubber, custom made for me, and ordinary
ink pads from the office supply. As the inks are not waterfast, I make sure that the stamp
is inked just so much and sits decently in a corner of the sheet's backside; one of the
corners where the drying rack has lefts its traces.
I tried waterfast stamping inks, but they are more expensive and proved so waterfast that
they dried on the pad and in the little crevices of the stamp within very short time.
The problem with the pre-inked stamps is, you cannot take influence on how much ink is
on the stamp. And if you want to change your signature, you have to throw away the whole
thing - as opposed to just have another stamp made and keep the pad. Economy and
Whatever we do, as soon as any user makes their first cut, the stamp will in all probability
be in the waste box.
