Tips for Scrapbooking with Rubber Stamps

Scrapbooking Rubber Stamps

Are you a crafter looking to spice up the pages of your scrapbooks? Search no further than scrapbooking rubber stamps! There are many possible ways in which you can use these handy tools for your scrapbooking projects. Here are just a few of them:

  • To add personalized text to a page
  • To decorate a page with colorful logos that relate to the theme
  • To emphasize something specific on a page, such as a photo or a caption
  • To make the whole theme of a page stand out

This is just a short list of the options you’ll have when you incorporate scrapbooking rubber stamps into your project toolkit. Now that you’ve been introduced to the versatility of rubber stamps for scrapbooking, it’s time to discuss some best practices for using these stamps:

  • Scrapbooking paper can be expensive, so you want to avoid wasting it. Therefore, we recommend always testing out your stamps on a piece of scrap paper before using them in your scrapbooks. Doing so will allow you to get a feel for how much pressure you need to apply in order to get a crisp, even impression.
  • Another tip for using scrapbooking rubber stamps is to stand up while stamping, especially when using larger stamps. This position will allow you to easily gauge how much pressure you are applying to the stamp, which can be difficult to do when you are sitting down. In turn, there will be less of a chance that your stamp impression will end up looking uneven.
  • Getting the spacing right when adding stamps to your scrapbook pages can be tricky. To work around this, we suggest stamping onto a smaller piece of paper and then adding it to the page as an embellishment. Using this trick will ensure that a lopsided stamp impression doesn’t ruin your page and allow you to use up those smaller pieces of paper. Plus, you can use decorative edge scissors on your embellishments to make them look fancy.

When you follow these simple tips, scrapbooking with rubber stamps will be a breeze!

As you begin preparing for the season of family gatherings and gift giving, we’d like to tell you about the many ways in which special occasion rubber stamps can be used, some of which you probably haven’t thought of before:

  1. To create custom party invitations – Not only are handmade invitations more personal than store-bought ones, but they’re also a lot less expensive! Whether you choose to go simple or extravagant, your guests will surely appreciate the time and thought you put into creating their invitations.
  2. To make greeting cards – As with invitations, everybody loves a homemade greeting card. Special occasion rubber stamps can be used to create beautiful cards for any holiday, from Thanksgiving to Christmas to Kwanzaa.
  3. To add pizzazz to plain wrapping paper – Why buy expensive decorative wrapping paper when you could use plain paper and then spice it up yourself using rubber stamps? The best thing about doing so is that you can customize a special occasion rubber stamp to suit your recipient by choosing a logo that fits their interests. We’ve got hundreds of logos in categories such as sports, animals and much more!

What To Do When a Notary Stamp Goes Missing

Custom Notary Stamps

If your job requires you to use custom notary stamps and/or embossers, surely you know that it’s important to make sure these products don’t fall into the wrong hands since they can be used to commit forgery or fraud. So what should you do if you misplace one of your notary stamps or you suspect that one may have been stolen? Here is the procedure we here at Rubber Stamp Station suggest following:

  1. When you realize that a notary stamp is missing, you should alert your state’s notary public administrator as soon as possible. Depending on your state, the process for doing so might entail sending in a form or calling the state’s office. In addition, you may also need to obtain authorization to order a replacement notary stamp. If this is the case, you should request this at the same time as you report the stamp missing so that you can get a new one right away.
  2. Next, report the missing stamp to a local law enforcement establishment. Provide them with a detailed description of the stamp, including its shape, brand, ink color and size. Also consider giving them a sketch of the stamp’s design.
  3. Once you’ve reported your stamp missing, it’s time to order a new custom notary stamp. This stamp should be different from your old one in terms of shape, size and ink color if possible. You may also want to change your notary signature and name for extra protection just in case an unauthorized individual got ahold of your old stamp.
  4. Finally, be sure to keep all of the documents involved in the process just in case you need them in the future. Make a record of the steps you took after losing your custom notary stamp and write down the date that you started using your new one.

Losing a notary stamp can be a stressful experience. When you follow these steps, however, you can rest assured that you have correctly handled the situation.

5 Tips for Re-Inking Pre-Inked and Self-Inking Stamps

Pre-Inked and Self-Inking Stamps

When it comes to taking care of your Trodat pre-inked and self-inking stamps, there isn’t a whole lot to do. However, there are a few simple yet crucial steps that you should take if you want to extend the life of your stamps. The first is to store the stamps in a location that doesn’t get too hot or too cold – that one’s simple. The second step is to refill the ink in your self-inking and pre-inked stamps whenever you notice that the impressions are becoming less vivid than they used to be. This step is a bit more involved, so we’re here to give you some pointers to use when it comes time to re-ink:

  1. Don’t delay re-inking. It’s important that you don’t keep using your stamp once the impression starts to fade. Letting the stamp get too low on ink may interfere with its ability to properly absorb ink moving forward.
  2. Make sure you choose the correct ink for your stamp model and type. For instance, if you’re using the Ideal 200 self-inking stamp, purchase ink that says it is for use in this stamp in the description. As a rule of thumb, only oil-based inks should be used in pre-inked stamps and only water-based inks should be used in self-inking stamps. Using the incorrect formula for your stamp type can damage it and may even render it unusable.
  3. Re-ink your stamp using the same ink color you were using previously. For both pre-inked and self-inking stamps, switching to a different ink color isn’t a good idea. There will probably be some of the old color left and it will blend with the new one, likely leading to a less-than-desirable color.
  4. Check the ink pad. In addition to re-inking, keep in mind that you may also need to replace the ink pad if you have a self-inking stamp. These pads can wear out naturally over time with use.
  5. Slowly add ink to pre-inked and self-inking stamps. Adding just a few drops at a time will prevent overfilling and keep you from wasting ink. If you accidentally add a bit too much, gently dab it off the surface using a paper towel.

By following these tips and tricks, you’ll keep your self-inking and pre-inked stamps in top condition, allowing you to use them for years to come.

Need Stamps? Look No Further Than RubberStampStation.com!

Knowing how to care for pre-inked and self-inking stamps won’t do you much good if you don’t have these products in your collection of office supplies. Luckily, Rubber Stamp Station sells both stamp varieties for up to 50% off the list prices!

4 Reasons to Purchase an Identity Theft Protection Stamp

Identity Theft Protection Stamp

Now more than ever, identity theft is a major threat to people everywhere. According to a 2017 study by Javelin Strategy & Research, a total of $16 billion was stolen from 15.4 million identity theft victims in 2016 alone. What’s more, the face of identity theft is changing. Since the introduction of hard-to-counterfeit microchip credit cards in 2015, thieves have largely turned their efforts to new account fraud, or opening new accounts using someone else’s personal information.

To safeguard your identity, we encourage you to purchase an identity theft protection stamp from Rubber Stamp Station. Here’s what this stamp has to offer you in the fight against personal information thieves:

  1. Prevents theft via dumpster diving – While it may seem farfetched, many identity thieves actually do root through trash cans, recycling bins and dumpsters when no one is around in search of bills and documents that disclose personal information. Some examples are hospital bills, credit card offers and statements, receipts, and legal documents. With an identity theft protection stamp, you can make your name, address, and other information unreadable to ensure that even if an ill-willed individual finds your mail, they won’t be able to do anything with it.
  2. Offers a safer alternative to shredding – Shredding may seem like a good method of destroying documents that include your personal information, but the reality is shredders are messy, noisy, and potentially dangerous for children. By opting to use an identity theft protection stamp instead, you’ll save time and space while keeping your family out of harm’s way.
  3. Allows documents to be recycled – Another issue with shredding is that it creates paper scraps that often cannot be recycled. Stamping is a more eco-friendly option because it doesn’t compromise the recyclability of papers.
  4. Provides a sense of security – Last but not least, using an identity theft protection stamp to black out your sensitive information on mail and documents will allow you to rest assured that no one can steal your identity by rooting through your garbage or otherwise obtaining your papers.
