A Guide On How To Build Your Own Custom Rubber Imprint

We all use such stamps that are made of rubber to indicate of our own product or our own creation, similar to using a watermark. Rubber imprints have been in the use for centuries as of now and there is still no reduction in its massive popularity at all! In fact, as more and more businesses are rising each and every day we can see a potential increase in the use of such stamps for business purposes in companies. Not just for business purposes, they can also be used for our own personal purposes such as for school projects or art projects or anything that would require a logo of our own. However, instead of buying such stamps from stores and spending hard earned money on them we can simply decide to make one for ourselves at home! Here is a guide to help with doing so.

Draw your design

For our own custom stamps, we will need our very own, personal design or logo. You can become creative when it comes to designing a logo for yourself and once you come up with something suitable, you can beautifully draw it out on a piece of paper. Make sure you keep an eraser on the paper to measure the size of the logo as it cannot be too big! Once you are done with tracing the shape of the eraser then draw the logo you came up with to fit on the space of the eraser.

Transfer the image

The next step is to make sure that you transfer the image you drew back on to your eraser. Keep the paper on the eraser in a way you can see the lining of your drawing is aligned with the middle of the eraser and draw atop it with a strong, ball point pen. Make sure you do not draw too hard as it might damage the surface of the rubber and we do not want that to happen. Once this is done, you might notice the image on the rubber is backwards but that is the way it is supposed to look to us if perfect rubber stamps are supposed to be used correctly.

Carve away

Once the drawing is done, carve the design out. Now remember that when you are carving, the part you are carving will be white and the rest will be ink. The easiest way to do this is to carve along the design you drew so that the design comes on to the paper in white and the rest is in ink. Once you have finished carving, cover the surface with ink and stamp it out!
