Do self inking stamps dry out?

Posted on

Self-inking stamps have a built-in ink pad that automatically re-inks the stamp each time it's used. However, over time, the ink pad can dry out and the stamp may produce faint or inconsistent impressions. To extend the life of the ink pad, it is recommended to store the stamp in a closed position when not in use, and to replace the ink pad when it becomes dry.

Self inking stamps can provide thousands of clear impressions over many years before eventually drying out.

The self-inking rubber stamp comes with its own waterbased ink pad, which is easily replaced adding to the life of the stamp. Ink pad colours available: black, red, blue, green, violet, bordeaux, brown, yellow, mint, orange, pink, turquoise and dry (un-inked)

Top Tip!!

If you are stamping glossy/non-absorbent cards, there is a chance the ink will smudge as it is not quick-drying. If you haven't already had your cards printed, ask your printer to print on an uncoated/absorbent card!
