Self-Inking And Pre-Inked StampsUpdated a year ago

What Are Self-Inking Stamps?

Self-inking stamps feature a self-contained ink pad which re-inks the stamp die before each impression is made.

Self-inking stamp pads use a water based ink and are fully re-inkable with ExcelMark Premium Stamp Ink for use in self-inking stamps.

Self-inking stamps are a cost effective solution and ideal for repetitive stamping.

Uses for Self-Inking Stamps:

  • Office paperwork - stamping documents and labels
  • Logos - using stamps for branding
  • Mailing - stamping envelopes, addresses and packages
  • Healthcare - stamping documents and records
  • Education - stamping homework and grading papers
