You decided you want to purchase a stamp! YEAH!! However you have no idea the difference between wood mounted and self-inking, amiright? No worries! Deciding on what style of stamp should not be stressful!! Let me talk you though it!
So, which stamp style is the best for your project? How do you decide which stamp style fits into your lifestyle? Follow these tips below to get started!
WOOD MOUNTED STAMPS
Wood mounted stamps will require a separate ink pad. Giving you the choice to use different colors of ink! I love color so this is the stamp style I personally gravitate towards. I like to keep my options open!
This style is great for most DIY projects! (makes wedding prep a breeze)
Wood mounted stamps can be purchased with a handle for easier use.
With wood mounted you are not limited to a certain size! Especially if you are needing it for wedding prep or birthday fun! We can make wood mounted stamps up to 8 x 10 inches large and as small as 0.5 x 0.5 inches, so go crazy!
Wood mounted stamps can be used on any type of paper, wood, glass, fabric, ceramic, clay, plastic, or really any surface with the correct ink. Wood mounted stamps are especially good for metallic papers. If you are stamping metallic or shimmery wedding envelopes, this is the style you need to go with, along with a permanent ink like StazOn inks.
A self-inking stamp includes the stamp and the ink all in one housed in a plastic case for easy use, travel, and storage.
Great for stamping multiple documents. I use self-inking stamps to mark orders, contracts, and invoices. I've had the same stamps for like 2 years and they are still going strong!
Self-inking stamps last FOREVER! One self-inking stamp cartridge can last for THOUSANDS of impressions!
Keep in mind that the ink that comes in self-inking stamps is water based so it does take longer to dry.
More convenient to use especially when stamping on paper or envelopes.
Self-inking make great address stamps for your everyday mail! They make great gifts for new homeowners too!
