Whether your question is about a stamp design, the manufacturing process, shipping or something else, we've got you covered. Personal rubber stamps from CustomStamps. Our state-of-the-art design process makes creating the exact stamp you want simple and straight forward.
Whether you're addressing mail , paying bills , signing contracts or making invoices , we have the rubber stamp you need. Our stamps produce crisp, clear images - every impression, every time. How do we do this?
Using carefully tuned lasers, your custom design is etched in stamp rubber with a steep, raised bevel which results in clean edges and smooth lines for the clearest impression available.
We offer 3 styles of rubber stamps: traditional wood handled, self-inking, and pre-inked. Our wood handled stamps are the classics you saw growing up.
These stamps require an ink pad which needs to come in contact with the die before each impression. Our self-inking models combine a stamp ink pad with a die, using a mechanism to flip the die and place it in contact with the stamp pad before every impression. Pre-inked rubber stamps are pre-filled with ink which seeps through the back of the die, allowing for a more compact stamping machine.
