Our custom rubber stamps are versatile tools that can add a personal touch to various aspects of life and business. Whether you want to brand your products, personalize greeting cards, or simply make your mark, custom rubber stamps offer a creative and efficient solution. Ever wondered how our handy tools are made? Let’s take a closer look at the fascinating process of creating custom rubber stamps.

Choosing Your Stamp

Before anything else, you need to select the stamp you are looking to customize. Our self-inking, pre-inked, and wooden handle stamps are all available as fully custom stamps. Simply choose the stamp type and size you are looking for, then start customizing.

Designing Your Stamp

We offer you complete control over the customization of our custom rubber stamps. This could mean anything from custom text, images, artwork, and more. Once you select a stamp and add it to your cart, our design wizard will make the designing process smooth and simple. You have the option to choose your own fonts and sizing for a truly unique stamp design.

Transforming Your Design Into a Stamp

When it comes to creating your custom stamp, our Simply Stamps team uses two primary methods:

Laser Engraving

Our laser engraving machines use high-powered laser beams to remove the rubber material selectively, following your design’s outline. The lasers are controlled by our software, which ensures that they engrave exactly around your unique design. The laser beam vaporizes or melts away the rubber, creating the raised portions of your stamp. This method is used to make our custom self-inking and wood handle stamps.

Flash Machine

Our flash machines work by flashing light through a vellum with the the stamp image that is being produced. The light melts away the surface of the flash die plate and leaves the surface of the desired image porous in order to allow ink to flow through. This method is used to make our custom pre-inked stamps.

Ensuring Quality

Before we ship your new custom rubber stamp, our team double checks that your stamp produces clear and consistent impressions. Any adjustments needed to achieve the desired result are made at this stage so you can enjoy a high-quality product!
