Self Inking Stamp Vs. Pre-inked Stamp

Self Inking Stamp Vs. Pre-inked Stamp

What’s a self-inking stamp?

  • A self-inking stamp is a rubber stamp in a spring-loaded stamp body.
  • When the stamp is not being used, the face of the stamp rests against an internal ink pad.
  • Every time you ‘stamp’, the rubber stamp rotates away from the ink pad and back again – so there’s always fresh ink on the surface of the stamp.

What’s so good about a self-inking stamp?

  • They are fast, clean and easy-to-use.
  • They are usually a little more economical than the pre-inked equivalent
  • You can expect to get around 5,000 impressions until the stamp needs to be re-inked

What kind of stamping is it best suited for?

  • Self-inked stamps are ideal for rapid and repetitive stamping.
  • They are a great choice for stamping your name or date

Anything else I should know?

  • Re-inking is super easy. Simply expose the stamp pad and place a few drops of water-based ink on the pad.

What’s a pre-inked stamp?

  • In a pre-inked stamp, the stamp face acts more like a sponge, with the ink held in a reservoir behind the text plate.
  • The ink soaks into the stamp, then releases when you press it down.
  • You only need to push down gently to make your impression.

What’s so good about a pre-inked stamp?

  • You’ll create beautiful, fine detailed impressions, due to the material used.
  • There can be much larger impression area than the self-inking stamps, because less movement is required.
  • There’s more flexibility to customise the size and shape.
  • You can expect to get 10,000 to 20,000 impressions before needing to re-ink.

What kind of stamping is it best suited for?

  • Pre-inked stamps are considered to be the top-quality stamp and provide a solid, crisp impression.
  • They are a great choice for more elaborate, detailed stamping.

Anything else I should know?

  • Ensure to put the dust cover back on after use, to keep stamp clean and avoid it from drying out.
  • The oil-based ink can be re-filled.
