    to stamp or not?

    I was thinking about ordering a stamp for the backs of my photos, ala "stamped on verso" any ideas on this? Do they even have archival stamp ink? Basically, how should I go about getting this done.

    Thanks - Will

    Will,

    I have used a rubber stamp in the past but have switched to using Archival Labels (Avery 6572 - 2 x 2.625 10up) printed on an epson 2200.

    This allows me to customize each label.

    I also use the labels. I think the stamp might look more traditional, but the labels are just easier.

    I also use computer-printed press-apply labels - permanent ones that can't be easily removed. I include a copyright notice along with contact info and the negative index reference for the specific image, so I can easily deal with reprint requests or questions.

    Is there a way to determine if a computer-printed press-on label is "permanent" or not? Are they special types of labels?

    Most of the time the package will either say permanent or removable. As to how permanent “permanent” means I can’t really say. Obviously, a label can easily be defaced. I think all that “permanent” means is that the label can only be removed in pieces – kind of like the labels on the wine bottles I use to put chems in.

    Though a stamp also is not foolproof, a sticky label could always be put over it.

    Anyway, I do like the look of the stamp. What information do most people usually have on the stamp?

    Here's what my labels look like.

    They are Avery Laser/Ink Jet White Permanent I.D. Labels #6572 2x2-5/8
    and the package says "Archival safe and acid free"

    i'd be careful of any adhesive gluing the acid free paper to the back of the print, unless it is reversible ( like wheat or rice paste ) .

    if i have to label anything, i just use a pencil ...

    Good Evening,

    Is there any deleterious effect caused by a Sanford Sharpie on FB prints?
