Stamps & Inks

Stamping is a very popular craft, and is an added art form used in scrapbooks and cardmaking and therefore great additions to your scrapbook supplies.

Rubber stamps have an image or pattern carved, molded, laser engraved or vulcanized onto a sheet of rubber that is mounted onto a wood or acrylic block for stability. Vulcanized rubber images are also attached to a cling vinyl sheet that can then be applied with an acrylic handle for support. Cling rubber stamps take less storage space and generally are cheaper than wood mounted stamps. They can also be positioned with greater accuracy due to the ability to see through the handle being used. 

Photopolymer stamps another form that are often produced in a set of coordinated images using a clear polymer material on an acetate carrier sheet for storage and packaging. The stamps are peeled from the carrier sheet and applied to a clear acrylic handle. The image can then be seen through the handle and enable precise placement of the image. Similar clear stamps made of silicone have many of the same properties of the photopolymer stamps. Clear stamps make storage of a large collection simpler, since they are all used with just one set of various sized handles. They are also often very economical being produced in sets of several images which work together to form a cohesive look.

Ink is applied to the image and then transferred by pressing onto the medium being used, such as paper or cloth, to form the image. Paints, pigments and dye inks create different effects, extending the use of stamp from paper to fabrics, wood, metal, glass, etc. 

Ink pads for stamps can also be used that allow for embossing and markers can also be used to ink stamps with colours for a multi-colour look. 

Stamp images can be combined with other materials and embellished by the use of chalks, paints, fibers and other embellishments.
