One of the most popular stamps you’ll find in our Jacksonville facility is a pre-inked stamp, but unless you love stamps just as much as we do, you may not know what sets this stamp apart from the others. So, what are the qualities of a pre-inked stamp that make it so different from say a wood handle or self-inking stamp? Everything from the way the stamp is made to the impression it leaves is truly unique.
What Makes a Pre-Inked Stamp Different?
Simply put, pre-inked stamps are our top-of-the-line stamps. They’re the luxury version of a rubber stamp, starting with how it’s made. A self-inking stamp can be made from start to finish in a few minutes, while your pre-inked stamp takes a bit longer and is more of a precise process. Why is that? Because just like with any other high-quality product, making a high-quality stamp isn’t a 1-2-3 process. But from the user’s perspective, what differences will you notice when you’re using your stamp?
The first difference you’ll notice is in the machine and how your stamp works. In a self-inking stamp, the ink pad works with the die to leave an impression, then retracts back into the stamp body. With a pre-inked stamp, the ink is inside of the stamp, so the only time you’ll see your stamp’s ink is when it’s already on your surface. A pre-inked stamp is also a lot quieter than a self-inking stamp, and it comes with a stamp cap so your ink doesn’t dry up over time.
Achieves the Highest Level of Detail
Pre-inked stamps leave the highest quality impression possible, in fact, it may even appear that it’s printed on your paper, napkins, etc. instead of stamped. We often suggest pre-inked stamps for custom logo stamps because of how great of an impression it leaves. If your logo is intricate, a pre-inked stamp is definitely the stamp for you because it’s able to achieve the finest details of your artwork. The best thing about a pre-inked XStamper is it’ll last for 50,000 impressions, so it’s a really great investment. No other stamp has that long of a lifetime!
With your pre-inked stamp, it’s important to note re-inking isn’t as simple as it would be for your self-inking stamp, but we’ve covered it in this short video to make it easy for you, just click here. You’ll also only get about four or five repetitive impressions with your pre-inked stamp before you need to let the ink settle back into the die. But after a short rest, your stamp will be ready to stamp those perfect, crisp impressions again!
For Logo, Address, Signature Stamps & More
As we mentioned, many of our customers choose a pre-inked stamp when ordering their custom logo stamp, but they also make great signature stamps so each document looks as though you actually signed it. If you love to send snail mail, a pre-inked address stamp is a great idea because you’ll be able to return address your envelopes with your favorite address stamp for years to come! When choosing what stamp is right for you, consider the benefits of a pre-inked stamp, but also think about how you’ll be using your stamp to make sure you’re getting what’s best for your intended purpose. And if you ever have any questions, we’re always just a phone call, email, or chat away!
