How to Get Ink Off Your Hands & Clothes

how to remove ink from clothes

It’s happened to all of us. The stamp slips and stains our hands or, even worse, our clothing, and we’re left feeling frustrated with the mess. Luckily, Trodat rubber stamp ink is completely free of hazardous substances and can be easily washed off your fingers and, with some patience, washed out of clothing as well.

If you have ink all over your hands, the solution is as simple as cleaning them off with some rubbing alcohol and a paper towel. Once you’ve rubbed your hands with the towel and removed the majority of the ink, you can wash your hands with a pumice-containing soap such as Lava soap to remove the rest of the ink. Any leftover discoloration on your skin should disappear within 24 hours!

If you’ve gotten ink on your clothes, getting it out can be a bit more complicated than getting it off your hands. You’ll want to soak the garment in one of the following solutions before washing it:

  • Try this one first, as it is the most common solution: 1 quart warm water, ½ tsp. Dishwashing detergent and 1 tbsp. ammonia. Mix it all together well and then soak the ink-stained garment for half-an-hour. After soaking, rinse the garment well. If this doesn’t work, move onto the next solution.
  • This solution probably won’t work on cotton or linen, but will work on other fabrics. Mix 1 quart of warm water and 1 tbsp. white vinegar. Soak the stained garment for one hour before rinsing. If the stain remains, there’s one more thing we recommend trying…
  • Take diluted rubbing alcohol and dab the stain with a clean pad. When the stain begins to loosen, take the pad to it and dab it away. Once you’ve gotten as much of the stain out as possible, rinse the garment and let it dry.

Hopefully one of these solutions will work for you. There are no guarantees, but, if nothing else, these steps should fade the stain to the point where it’s barely noticeable!

A rubber stamp is nothing without ink, so the next time your hands or clothing become stained from a round of vigorous stamping, just keep in mind that the ink is a “necessary evil” and without it, you’d be hand-writing everything! And remember, for all of your rubber stamp needs, trust Rubber Stamp Station, the best source for Trodat stamps online.

It's happened to all of us. The stamp slips and stains our hands or, even worse, our clothing, and we're left feeling fr...

Replacing a Trodat Ink Pad

Trodat Ink Pad

Welcome back for another installment of the Rubber Stamp Station blog! This week’s topic is the process of switching out a dried up and inkless Trodat ink pad for a new one in your self-inking Trodat “Printy” stamp.

First, you’ll need to purchase a replacement pad that matches the high quality rubber stamp you already have. Simply match up the model number of the stamp with the model number of the Printy replacement pad and you’ll be good to go! You’ll be able to find all of these replacement pads on our site, the best rubber stamp distributor online.

To get started, you’ll want a sheet of scrap paper and your Trodat replacement pad. Place your printy on the piece of paper so the Trodat logo faces away from you.

Next, locate the thin rectangular insert that is the currently installed ink pad. Press down on the top part of the stamp and depress the small buttons on the sides of the top part of the rubber stamp. Turn the stamp around so the Trodat logo faces you and depress the button below the logo. You will then see the ink pad pop out slightly from the other side of the stamp.

Pull out the ink pad with your fingers and recycle it. Note that all Trodat ink is non-toxic! Now you can unwrap the new replacement pad and insert it into the pad chamber with the inked side face up. Push down on the top of the stamp to lock the pad into place.

Take your waste paper and do a few test prints. You’ll be in business when the print is filled out with even ink coverage.

If at any point in the replacement process, just give us a call 1 (850) 7STAMPS for assistance. Our incredible customer service department is more than happy to help with any of your rubber stamp needs, and we’re also happy to tell you about what else we offer in the way of the best rubber stamps online!

As always, thank you for choosing Rubber Stamp Station!

Which Ink Do I Choose For My Rubber Stamp?

Without ink, a rubber stamp is all look and no show. So what do you do when your stamp runs out of ink? Are there refills or do you have to buy a new stamp? This short blog from Rubber Stamp Station, the best rubber stamp distributor online, will help you determine what the correct course of action is when your self-inking stamp or stamp pad runs out of ink.

When your high quality rubber stamp is in need of an ink source, you’ll first want to make a few distinctions. First of all, you’ll need to determine what brand your stamp is. As expert carriers of the best rubber stamps online, we want you to know that the inks for the two main brands we carry, Trodat and Ultimark, are NOT interchangeable! In the coming explanations of which replacement ink to choose, we’ll tell you why.

For Trodat stramps, you’re looking for either a replacement pad or ink made by none other than Trodat. If you elect to buy and use Ultimark ink instead, you’ll be disappointed when the rubber die on your high quality rubber stamp begins to swell because it’s not compatible with oil-based ink like that made by Ultimark. The end result? A poor stamp impression.

Have you lost your stamp pad or has it aged to a point where you can no longer use it? For self-inking Trodat stamps, you’ll want to find the replacement pad that corresponds with the model number on your stamp. Once you’ve found the correct model, you’ll choose your ink color and be on your way!

If your rubber stamp pad is simply dried up and out of ink, you’ll want to buy some Trodat refill ink. Available in blue, black, green, violet and red, this versatile ink is best kept in multiple colors with multiple pads to ensure that you always have the color of ink you need!

Have a rubber stamp not made by Trodat? If your stamp is made by Ultimark, the process is a bit simpler for you. Because all of the Ultimark stamps we sell are of the pre-inked variety, you’ll want Ultimark Stamp Ink, available in either ½ oz. or 2 oz. Bottles. It’s that easy!

Remember, Trodat ink CANNOT be used with Ultimark products. While both brands make some of the top rubber stamps in the world, you must remember that Trodat ink is a lower viscosity than Ultimark ink, which causes Trodat ink to leak out of any Ultimark stamp. Surely, you don’t want this mess on your hands!

Hopefully this blog has cleared up any dilemma you may have been having about which ink to choose for your rubber stamp. As always, you can find the best rubber stamps online at Rubber Stamp Station, and if you have any questions, call up our customer service hotline at 1 (850) 7STAMPS!
