Staying Organized at School with Rubber Stamp Station

The new school year is right around the corner and for all those messy students out there, you may be wondering how to stay organized once you’re finally back at school. Each school year is a fresh start, so Rubber Stamp Station is here to help you make the most of it by offering a few tips and tools on how to stay organized at school.

Tips and Tools To Help Stay Organized at School

Staying organized can seem like a no-brainer to some students, but for others, it’s no easy task! That’s why we made a list of a few tips and tools to help you stay organized at school this fall.

  • Use a planner – If you start every school year off using a planner, but by the third week you’ve given it up, don’t sweat it. Using a planner correctly is a skill, and like all skills, it just takes practice. Set time aside every afternoon to go back through your planner and look over what you’ve written down, or write down things you forgot earlier. Use a bookmark to mark the place and section off a little part of every day for all your subjects. This will help you keep your planner organized.
  • Color Coordinate – Whether you use binders or folders, color coordinate them with your notebooks! Use a red notebook and a red folder for math, green for Science, and blue for English (or whatever colors you choose!) This will help you keep the right subjects in the right folders, binders, and notebooks. You can even take it a step further by highlighting in your planner with the same coordinated colors. A custom subject stamp can also help label and remind you which papers go with which subjects. Ink pads come in a variety of colors to help you color coordinate and stay organized.
  • Date stamp worksheets and assignments – One great tool to help you stay organized with due dates is a date stamper. A Trodat Date Stamp will allow you to quickly stamp due dates on worksheets and assignments so you never forget. You can also use it in your planner to help you remember when things are due versus when they were assigned.

Organization is Easy with Rubber Stamp Station

If you’re wondering how to stay organized at school this fall, don’t worry, Rubber Stamp Station has got you covered. Staying organized is a breeze with our date stamps, custom text stamps, and wide variety of ink color options. For all your organization needs, browse our catalogue or give us a call at 1-850-778-2677. Happy learning!

Easy Tips For Removing Rubber Stamp Ink from Fabric and Skin

Rubber Stamp Station – Ink Experts

The people at Rubber Stamp Station are experts on stamps, and with every stamp comes a supply of ink. There’s always a risk of getting ink on your skin and clothes when you use stamps, so we’ve compiled a healthy guide to help you with removing ink from fabric and skin.

Removing Ink from Fabric

There are a few options open to you when it comes to removing ink from fabric and clothes, depending on the type of fabric and the materials you want to use for removal:

  • Most kitchens have white vinegar, which makes the most convenient option a combination of white vinegar and warm water. This is not a great option if the fabric you’ve inked is cotton or linen, however. Mix 1 tablespoon of white vinegar with a quart of warm water. Soak the fabric in this solution for an hour, then rinse with warm water.
  • Another option open to you requires dishwashing detergent and ammonia. Mix 1 quart of warm water, ½ teaspoon of dishwashing detergent, and 1 tablespoon of ammonia into a solution. Then, soak the fabric in the solution for 30 minutes. Rinse completely with warm water.
  • The last option requires rubbing alcohol. Mix rubbing alcohol with warm water in a 1:1 ratio. After you’ve diluted the rubbing alcohol with warm water, use cotton balls (or paper towels) to dab at the stain. You should be able to blot the stain away once it’s loosened. You may need to repeat several times as it’s a more delicate option than soaking the entirety of the fabric. Afterward, rinse with warm water.

Removing Ink from Skin

To remove ink from the skin, blot or rub at the spot with a paper towel soaked in rubbing alcohol. It’s that easy! You can also use soap containing pumice. We recommend Gojo.

Don’t Let a Stain Stop Your Crafts!

If you haven’t been scared away from crafting by some ink stains (which you hopefully were able to remove with our helpful tips!) then Rubber Stamp Station has a wide variety of stamping options, available for crafts and fabrics. Looking for a fabric stamp that is permanent? Try our clothing marker stamp! You’ll never lose your clothes again.

Safe Summer Projects – Shirts to Make with Your Kids!

Many of us are looking for fun, fresh activities to do with our kids this summer. Rubber Stamp Station can help! Making personalized t-shirts with your kids is a great craft project with endless design opportunities. Find some awesome ideas below!

Get Started on Your Unique Look

There are several ways to make personalized t-shirts (and your kids’ shirts) that are both safe and fun. So grab a plain t-shirt and let’s get started!

  • Tie-dye. Tie-dye is an age-old activity that’s been around for decades. That’s the best part – it never goes out of style. Tie-dye methods have developed greatly since the late twentieth century. You can buy safe, nontoxic tie-dye kits at most craft and multi-purpose stores.
  • Permanent Stamps. Like a tattoo for your clothes, clothing stamps let you stamp fun designs on your shirts that won’t disappear in the wash. You can upload your own design or you can pick from our vast collection on our website. Stamp on your shirt with our permanent nontoxic, environmentally friendly ink. It won’t come out in the wash and your design will be perfect every time. Whether you want to stamp your clothes with flowers, butterflies, sports icons, or just your name, stamps add a lovely personalized touch to your clothes!
  • Cut-and-tie. Another longstanding DIY fashion statement is to cut-and-tie. It’s easy. Cut small strips on the edge of the fabric and tie them together for an awesome fringe. Here is a great tutorial!
  • Fabric paint is another product found at most craft stores. It’s great for making personalized t-shirts that support a team or group as you can use it to write or create a fun design.

Make Your Summer Style Your Own

Making your own personalized t-shirts is not only a fun project to do with your kids, but lets you make your summer style uniquely personal. The best part is, no matter where you go, nobody will have the same shirt as you! Add a personal touch with tie-dye, paint, and Rubber Stamp Station’s clothing marker stamps. Clothing marker stamps are also a great way to add identifying information on your kids’ clothes. A phone number or address will ensure the shirt they worked hard on will always be returned even if it gets lost. For more information on clothing marker stamps, call Rubber Stamp Station at 1 (850) 7STAMPS. Want your shirts to be personalized but don’t trust your crafting skills? No problem! Check out our online apparel store. We’re here to ensure your summer style is uniquely you.

Fun Craft Projects to Do with Kids – Part 2

journal

Craft Like a Champ With Your Kids!

Our last blog post looked at a few fun craft projects to do with kids. We went over how to create a homemade children’s book and how to tap into your childhood nostalgia with cootie catchers. This week, we’ll look at a few more arts and crafts projects that both you and your kids will love!

Make a Collage

Collaging is a timeless and creative way to put your personality on paper. The best part? It takes no artistic talent! However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get artsy. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Large paper or poster board
  • Magazines, newspapers, old books, or anything you don’t mind cutting up
  • Scissors
  • Glue

The simplest way to collage is to cut pictures and phrases out of magazines and newspapers that reflect you and your personality. If you love fashion, cut outfits! Love animals? Cut out a cute puppy picture. Once you’ve cut out a lot of clips and snippets that show who you are, glue them all down on your larger paper or poster. It’s that easy! To really get into it, we recommend adding more personal touches to your collage with stickers, stamps, embossing, fun drawings or paint, or anything else you can think of. It’s simple in its basic form, but the more you add to it, the more things that make you uniquely you will jump off the page. And who knows, maybe you’ll learn more about yourself and your kids as you go!

Start a Personal Journal

What you’ll need:

  • Blank journal, notebook, or just paper combined into a book or folder
  • Writing utensil
  • Any art supplies desired

A common misconception about a journal is that it’s all about writing your feelings. A journal definitely can be used for that, but it can also be a fun, ongoing creative project. Similar to a collage, a journal is a reflection of you – who you are, your inner thoughts, desires, feelings. Many people find journaling to be helpful and therapeutic! Getting your kids to start a journal early in their lives may help them find a sense of self and confidence in expressing themselves.

A great way to journal, especially for young children, is to let creativity drive the project. Journaling isn’t all writing. Like a scrapbook, a journal can be drawings, pictures, painting, stickers, stamps, song lyrics, poetry, mini-collages, and more.

Keep the Crafts Going with Rubber Stamp Station

Collaging and journaling are fun crafts projects to do with kids and are a great way to express yourself. At Rubber Stamp Station, we want your crafts to reflect all the things that make you unique. That’s why we offer customizable stamps that let you put a personalized touch on any project. Check out our catalog for all your crafting needs and let your personality shine through. For more information, call us at 1 (850) 778-2677.

Fun Craft Projects to Do with Kids – Part 1

arts and crafts

Time to Get Crafty!

If you’ve been spending a lot of time with your kids cooped up inside recently, you may be looking for new ideas on how to keep them entertained. Or maybe you just want some new arts and crafts ideas to do together. Here are some fun craft projects to do with kids that both you and your little ones will love!

Create a Children’s Book

Creating a children’s book is a great way to combine a bunch of small projects into one. The materials are easy:

  • Paper – as many pages as you want your book to be!
  • A hole punch
  • Ribbon or string
  • Writing/coloring utensils

To bind your book, punch even holes in your pieces of paper. Loosely tie the ribbon or string through each hole. Not too tight, or your book won’t open as easily! There! Now you’ve got your book. What goes inside is up to you. Draw, write, paint, cut out and glue, the options are endless. We recommend using fun stamps to add a personal touch. Create a story and some characters with your kids, then let your creative spirit take the lead!

Make a Cootie Catcher

Bask in the nostalgia of cootie catchers by making them with your kids. Cootie catchers are a good way to keep the hands busy because, as we all know, idle hands cause trouble. Get your kids folding, coloring, and using those cootie catchers with this handy guide.

Materials:

  • Square piece of paper (one per cootie catcher)
  • Pen or pencil
  • 4 different colored pencils, crayons, or other coloring utensils

Cootie catchers are fun faux fortune tellers that can be as simple or creative as you want! Personalize them with stamps, pictures, and stickers!

Crafting with Rubber Stamp Station

With everyone at home and more time being spent together as a family, finding fun craft projects to do with kids can be a saving grace. That’s why at Rubber Stamp Station, we want to help you keep boredom at bay and spend quality time with your family.

How to Change the Ink Pad in Your Self-Inking Stamps

stampsSelf-Inking Stamps – Oh No! I’m Out of Ink

Self-inking stamps are great for businesses and an easy-to-use artistic tool that can help you personalize any document or craft. They’re convenient, clean, affordable, and without an extra pad of ink to carry around, mobile. However, what do you do when they run out of ink? Don’t worry! Changing the ink pad in a self-inking stamp is easy. No need to throw away that stamp. Follow these simple steps to change the inkpad in your Trodat Printy stamp.

The Materials You’ll Need

  • Your Troday Printy Self-Inking Stamp
  • A replacement pad of ink
  • A sheet of paper – any kind will do, even a Sticky-Note

How to Change the Inkpad in Your Self-Inking Stamp

  1. First, you need to purchase a replacement pad for your self-inking stamp. It’s of the utmost importance you buy the right size! To avoid mistakes, simply match the model number of your Trodat stamp to the model number of the replacement pad. For ease of use, all the replacement pads and model numbers are available on our website. Make sure you get the color you want!
  2. Place the Trodat stamp on your sheet of paper. Make sure the Trodat logo is facing away from you.
  3. Find the insert that indicates the current pad. It will be rectangular and thin.
  4. Press down on the stamp while simultaneously pressing the buttons on the sides of the top of the stamp.
  5. Now turn the stamp around so the logo is facing you and press the button below the logo. The ink pad will pop out from the other side! Pull it out and recycle it. All Trodat ink is environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
  6. After you’ve unwrapped your new inkpad, insert it into the chamber with the ink side face up.
  7. Press down on the top of the stamp to lock the inkpad into place.
  8. Do a few test stamps on your sheet of paper. Once it’s printing solidly and clearly, you are ready to use your Trodat Self-Inking Stamp again!

Have Further Questions?

Trodat replacement inkpads are made for self-replacement, but if you still have questions about replacing your inkpad, please call us at 1 (850) 778-2677. For more Trodat products, feel free to take a look at our catalogue. Happy stamping!

Fun Hobbies For When You’re Stuck At Home


We hope you’re staying safe, healthy, and virtually connected to your family and friends during this tough time. As we all seek to slow the spread of COVID-19, most of us will be staying home for an indefinite period of time. This can be especially challenging for those of us who live alone, or for active people who have trouble staying occupied inside. Perhaps you’re an introvert who prefers to be alone, and you’re enjoying this time! No matter where you land, you might be looking for hobbies to help you pass the time and keep you grounded and peaceful during this stressful season. Here are a few ideas:

Learn an Artistic Craft

In this day-and-age of YouTube, you don’t have to attend art class to learn a new craft. Drawing, painting, pottery, jewelry-making, and more are just a few artistic skills and hobbies you can try by yourself at home! Once you have the necessary materials, let your creativity fly, or watch one of those calming Bob Ross videos on YouTube.

Baking/Cooking

The recipes are free on the internet or you can pick up a cookbook at your nearest bookstore. Bake cookies, cakes, and muffins, or try out that new roasting rub you’ve been dying to taste.

Photography

Photography is a great way to see the world through a new perspective. Appreciate nature through a different lens. Setting up and using your own darkroom can be a relaxing and personal experience, so get out there and give it a try!

Scrapbooking

Whether you just got into photography and need a place to put your new pictures, or you’ve been wanting to collect all your memories in one place, scrapbooking is the perfect hobby for the sentimental person. Scrapbooking combines hobbies like collecting, art, and photography in a way that allows you to creatively and personally preserve your life. Scrapbooks also make great gifts, especially for those people you don’t get to see very often.

Take up Puzzling or Model-Building

Hobbies that require careful patience and the use of your hands can be quite stimulating and very calming. Let the mind sink into a place of focus and relaxation. Time can get away from you in hobbies like this, but the results are always satisfying. Glue and hang your puzzles like an art piece and paint your models to add a personal flair.

Uniquely you – Rubber Stamp Station and Your Personal Hobbies

No matter what hobby you enjoy doing independently, there is always a way to give it that extra-personal touch. Let your personality and independence shine through with Rubber Stamp Station. We offer products like personalized stamps and custom apparel that you can personally design. Enhance your artwork, scrapbooks, models, and photos just the way you like with Rubber Stamp Station. Peruse our catalogue for great ideas or call us at 1 (850) 778-2677 to get started!
