Self Ink Stamps

Updated on July 21, 2013

Self-Inking Stamps for Crafts and Much Much More

Self ink stamps are great for all types of crafts like making greeting cards and for scrapbooking. Customizable self-inking stampers are also great for personalized return addresses.

Personalized self inking stamps even let you add photos to make one-of-a-kind stamps! Who knew? Not me, till now.

These gadgets also can make craft time fun for kids. The convenience of self-inking stamps makes them great for little ones to use. Instead of having to first stamp an ink pad to get ink on the stamp, kids can simply push down and the stamp appears on the paper. And they're less messy.

  3. recipe cards
  4. gift tags and gift-wrap

Personalized Wedding Gift

Their Address

Have you been invited to a wedding but not sure what to get the bride and groom?

You can easily have a stamp made with newlyweds' names and address, like the one shown below.

Give this gift along with some lovely thank you cards, note cards, stationery, recipe cards, bookplates, whatever the bride and groom like. They will appreciate the practical gift that they can use right away and for years to come.

Include a bottle or two of ink for refills to make it even better!

      Oh, I do have my eye on that Sun Motif Stamp! Self-inking stamps would be great for postcard exchanges, too!

      I used to, don't know why I stopped! I think your idea for the gift for a new bride and groom is a great idea. It would be so much easier for them to be able to have that right away, instead of having to order labels, etc. Impressive lens!

      Wow. Self-inking stamps have come a long way since the first and last time I bought one... I think that was when they were first invented. Maybe it is time for me to buy another... these are sweet!!!
