The stamp you need depends on what you're using it for and how much you want to spend. We carry 3 different types of ink stamps. The biggest difference between these types of stamps is how they transfer your ink impression to the paper.
- Self-Inking Stamps have a built-in ink pad that adds ink to the stamp die while in the UP position. When pressed DOWN, the stamp die flips around and transfers that ink to the paper.
- Wood Handle Stamps require a separate ink pad. After pressing the Wood Handle Stamp onto the ink pad, you lift the stamp up, move it to your paper and press down.
- Pre-Inked Stamps use a built in reservoir to hold the ink. Each time the stamp is pressed down, the ink transfers through the 'flash' screen, giving you a photo quality impression.
Self-Inking stamps are great for quick, repetetive stamping, or if you don't want the hassle and mess of separate ink pad. They are the easiest type of stamp to use.
Wood Handle Stamps are ultra durable, very affordable, and can easily switch between ink pads with different colors.
Pre-Inked Stamps offer the highest print quality, best cost per impression, and water resistant inks.
