  • Help with Rubber Stamps

    I wanted to start designing my own rubber stamps. Does anyone know where I should start, i.e. finding a company who will make the rubber stamp for me, once I've created a design. I've asked so many craft companies who I thought might be able to help but they seem to blank me. Thanks.

          Making your own stamps


          I have found a great place on the internet, however i haven't long started with this forum & unable to post web sites (?)

          If you are interested mail me at mod edit - not a good idea to put e mail addys on public view. PM instead and then i can give you the link.

                Further to my post above i have now found that company i was talking about & now i can post links it is:


                I have used them a couple of times & find it really great & they are so quick, I think i got them back within a week of sending the order off & so reasonable, prices start at just £3.50

                Hope that helps

                    imagepac are really good if you are just starting out getting a feel for what you want to do, but if you want to do it in large quantities then it is better to get someone to make them for you

                      Stamps help

                      Slightly off-original topic here, but can anyone help? I am new to stamping and embossing. I just ordered a beautiful 10cm x10cm stamp, unmounted, and it's gorgeous! I have mounted it on acrylic, so far so good, but how do I ink it? I have several pigment pads, but none of them are 10x10, unsurprisingly.
                      Do I have to use a brayer, and if so, how? Do large inkpads with hinged lids exist? I have not found them, just multicoloured pads. I think I'm missing something...
                      All suggestions gratefully received

                        Hi HP1 and welcome to the forum

                        I'd recommend applying the ink to the stamp rather than the other way around...which is probably a bad explanation. OK, if you hold the stamp image side up and then use the inkpad to dab all over the image you'll get an even coverage - hope that explains it better.

                          When I was at school we actually made our own stamps. From what I remember we were given a flat piece of rubber with a sort of hessian backing. We pencilled a design onto it and then used tools to carve the design out. I wouldn't know where to get supplies from though. x

                            I just did a Google for rubber stamp makers, it showed plenty of them, don't think I can leave the link to the page so you will have to do it manually, oh the hardship.


                            P.S. I think that "rubber" with a hesian backing may have been lino, we made lots of lino cuts at school from what I remember of it?
