Clay Stamp Artwork Files
Keep in mind that the artwork or logo you upload will be the exact design that you receive on your rubber stamp. Here are some best practices to make sure your stamp provides the best results:
- Turn your design into a single-color file to see how the stamp impression will look!
- Avoid shading or faded designs
- Avoid ultra-fine or faded lines
- In some cases, the best result may include reversing your design (see below)
How to: Make Stamp Impressions on Clay
Here is how to make custom rubber stamp impressions on clay:
- Make sure you have a smooth, flat surface on your clay or pottery project
- To avoid your rubber stamp sticking to the clay, lightly dust your rubber stamp with cornstarch
- Firmly press your stamp into the clay
- Allow the stamp to sit in the clay for around 60 seconds to create a clear, crisp impression
- Gently lift your stamp away from the clay
- Allow your clay project to completely dry to see the final results of your stamp!
