  1. Gather your custom signature stamp, your artwork and an ink pad in the color of your choice
  2. Ensure that your painting, drawing or artwork is completely dry
  3. Ink your stamp by firmly pressing into your ink pad, then create an impression wherever you’d like to leave your one-of-a-kind signature!

Artwork Stamp Tips

Here are some of our favorite rubber stamp tips and tricks to help you create crisp, easy-to-read impressions on your artwork:

  • For stamping on canvas, use a sponge to apply acrylic paint to your stamp, then create your impressions. This will ensure that your signature is clear, crisp and won’t smudge.
  • For stamping kid’s artwork and school projects, check out our curated line of artwork stamps for kids!
  • For the best possible impression, keep the colors of your artwork in mind when selecting your ink color.
