  • Tiny alphabet stamp set

    Hmmmm ... a while ago we discussed using fabric paint and ever since then I've being trying to find a set of alphabet stamps to use above the front door on my cottage doorstop.

    I have a few questions if anybody can help :

    1) What is the difference between mounted and unmounted stamps?
    2) How do I line the letters up so that it's not all wonky?
    3) Are there any suppliers out there? I need really tiny letters..... in both upper and lower case as well as an apostrophe?

    Mounted stamps come on something that is easy to hold like the wooden bit and unmounted stamps are just the little rubber bits. People sell unmounted stamps as some people have their own mountings to put them on and some can be re-used again and again on plastic mounts. My advice would be not to go for the remountable ones as I have some in the past and they tear quite easily.
    Guesswork is how I know where I am stamping but you will get used to it and k now where to put the stamp. If you are really concerned about it then you can but stamps that are see through and you can see exactly where you need to position the stamp. My alaphabet stamps are a very well known brand but I can't for the life of me remember what the brand is and they are hiding somewhere in the craft room at the moment.
    One thing to bear in mind is that with some stamp companies you aren't allowed to use them for commercial purposes so ideally you need to look for an angel company - they let you use the stamps for whatever purpose you want.
    Here's a link for you but it might be out of date!

      You can buy the unmounted rubber on its own, but it will obviously be a bit messy to work with.
      You can get both mounted and unmounted from ebay (I will try find a link to the shop I brought from)
      Were you thinking of using the fabric ink pads? I brought some and am very pleased with the way they have come out. They work the same as a normal ink pad, but you then iron to fix. I just need to test them in the wash before going any further as i'm hoping to use them with my cushions.

          Cheers Swirly ... have bought two sets from one of the UK based Angel companies.

          Incy ... what ink do I have to use for fabric? I've bought some fabric paint and was going to pour it into a tray. It says you iron it to seal it. Do you think that will be okay? It doesn't need to be washed as it's for a doorstop.

            I got my ink pads from here versacraft
            I'm sure paint will work just as well though.

            Can you PM me the Angel company link so I can take a look.

              I bought from this company

              I'm sure there is cheaper out there, but I was attracted by the fact as long as you hand-stamp your products they don't mind you selling them.
