We can make your very own design into a rubber stamp quickly. We are specialists in art stamps, but can make any text stamps you require.
Our stamps are made from polymer. This is an artificial rubber-type of material, widely used in the printing industry. We can achieve great details in our stamps with this material, which is CLEAR and can be supplied unmounted for use with clear blocks to aid the positioning of your images. You can specify a clear stamp at the checkout.
We can produce any size custom stamp up to around 10 inches across. The process of making the stamp is photographic and so the image you supply us must be of good quality.
Please be sure that your image for upload meets the following criteria
- save the file as a jpg
- image should be 400x400pixels minimum and actual size (72 dpi is nowhere near good enough!)
- greyscale not colour
The image can be hand-drawn, written or computer-generated.
The image you upload should be exactly as you want it to appear when stamped. There is no need to reverse the image!
If you are unsure if your image is suitable for our custom image stamp service please contact us.
We will contact you if there are any problems with any supplied image for our custom stamp service.

If you're a cardmaker, you'll be delighted by our large range of inkpads, pens and embossing powders.
With inkpads you can decorate paper, cards, glossy surfaces, glass (with Stazon), fabric (with VersaCraft), wood, shrink plastic and much more?
We have a fantastic selection of embossing powders available. All are used the same way.
Stamp your image using a pigment ink (VersaColor is perfect)
Pour a good amount of powder onto the stamped image.
The excess powder can be returned to the jar
Heat the image gently with the heat gun.
Use swirling movements so as not to scorch the surface.
The powder will melt in a few seconds and that’s it!
Clear powders will allow the ink colour to show through. Other colours will completely obscure the underlying ink colour.
Sparkle colours have a permanent glitter effect. Aromatic powders will retain their smell for a few weeks after melting.
