    Where to get Rubber Stamps?

    I'm looking for a rubber stamp to stamp the back of FB prints that intend for sale. Just curious where you can get custom stamps made, what information is important to include and what kind of ink to use that won't harm the photo or seep through.

    Thanks!

    What ink do you guys use though? I'd be afraid to stamp something using regular stamp pad type things.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    I miss the smell of bakelite matrices and vulcanizing stamp rubber... Probably no good for me because of the asbestos...

    The new custom ones are probably all photopolymer which is fine.

    There are plenty of arts and crafts shops catering to rubber stamping. I think they make some pigment stamp pads in really cool colors. I'd look for something like that.

    I've used this place in the past: http://www.stamp-connection.com/

    They've always been a pleasure to deal with, and ship extremely fast.

    Why rubber and not stone? They're more solid and IMO easier to use.

    Don't use stamps on photos the ink will bleed trough the paper at some point in the future. Maybe not in the next 20 years but it will happen sooner or later.

    i only used to stamp my address on the back of direct mail pieces, never
    any photographs sold as photographs. i only use a soft pencil for that.
    i use the embosser whenever i send out an estimate or bill, official correspondence or something like that ...
