The most important thing to remember when using a Traditional Hand Stamp or any Manual Stamp is to use a good ink pad with enough ink.
NOT ENOUGH INK = Poor Imprint
The Stamp exists only to transfer the ink from the stamp pad to the paper.
- Don’t slam the stamp on the ink pad.
Slamming pushes the ink down inside the pad and away from the stamp.
- Dab it lightly.
3 or 4 times before stamping.
Try patting the ink pad once and see how the imprint looks.
You may have to pat the ink pad a couple of times per imprint to get the look you want.
The die (your info) will eventually become saturated with ink making it easier to get a clear print.
You may have to try it a few times to see what works best for you.
- Make sure you use a good stamp pad!
It will help greatly to make a good impression. Buy a new pad or re-ink the one you have now.
