It is important that you upload your design as normal on our online design uploader. We invert all stamps in batches when making them. Inverting the design before upload will cause you to have a stamp incorrectly mirrored.
We make all stamps to the full size of the stamp size ordered unless a specific size is added in the order comments section at the checkout.
Please note we can only make them within the proportion of your image. So if you select a 50mm x 30mm stamp for instance and your design is 50mm x 25mm then we will make the design 50mm x 25mm without stretching the image out of proportion.
The sizes listed on our website will be the maximum size of your impression. We then make the base a few millimetres bigger to accommodate this.
The red border represents the shape and scale of your chosen custom stamp. This red line will not be part of the stamp design and is for reference purposes only.
Although we have many sizes to choose from on-site, there are occasions when you may require an exact size stamp for your purpose.
If this is the case please find the closest matching size on our site and continue with your order as normal. Once you get to the checkout page, please enter a note in the order comments section highlighted below:
If you have a version of your logo in black and white that’s perfect, most colour logos we can convert into a monotone image for use as a rubber stamp for you as long as there is enough definition between light and dark colours.
Our online stamp designer should give you an accurate representation of how your stamp will look, but if you are unhappy with the results please email your logo to us as we can manually adjust it for you and send you proof via email.
As a general rule, we work on negative and positive rules for artwork. All black/dark areas of your logo will be the part that is stamped.
If we feel your design will need to be inverted to produce a decent quality stamp, then we will do this automatically for you once we process the order.
If you specifically need this inverted please leave a comment at the checkout or email us for assistance at [email protected]
We only create stamps with a border if your logo already has one included, or if the ‘add border’ is selected in the design options.
Yes, of course, all our stamps ( apart from the really small ones) are fully customisable to include both logos and text
There are a few reasons why your image is blurry on our preview. The most common reason is that the resolution of the image is not high enough so it is always best to upload an image 300dpi or more.
Sometimes our site has heavy traffic with multiple customers uploading images at the same time when this happens we do reduce bandwidth in order for all our customers on-site to be able to smoothly use our site and this may reduce the quality of the on-screen preview.
This will not affect your uploaded logo and as long as it is a high-quality image, we will use the uploaded design you supplied and not the onscreen preview.
If you have concerns please email us your logo or design and we can send you a proof before ordering.
There could be a few reasons for this as follows.
Reason 1: Please make sure you have uploaded your design to the correct image uploader.
For instance, if you are uploading an eps file please make sure you are using the vector upload option and not the upload image uploader. Jpeg and PNG images require a different uploader for the online design to read these files.
Reason 2: the online stamp designer can only read dark colours. So any light colours may not show up on the online designer. If this is the case please email us your design to [email protected] and we will convert this for you free to charge.
As shown above please use the first upload option for the following files: PNG, JPEG & JPG files.
Please use the bottom upload option for EPS, PDF and SVG files.
If you have done the above and the image is still not showing, please email us at [email protected] with a copy of the file or you can click on the chat bar, so we can assist you.
In general, as long as the image is 300dpi or more then normally it will be good enough to convert into a custom rubber stamp for you.
It is always best to send us the highest quality artwork you have rather than a version that you have scaled down to size, as we can always scale the size down on our end.
Our online stamp designer will provide you with an online preview of what the stamp will look like when converted onto a stamp. Please review the image and make sure you're happy with it. This is especially important when your design has colour and it is converted by our software in a monotone impression. If your image is black already ( or very dark) more often than not it will be perfect already for us to convert easily into a stamp for you.
If your image is not black and has layers of colours our stamp designer will remove any light colours and convert it into a monotone image. If the design is not showing you a preview that suits your requirements please email us at [email protected] with the file or click on the chat button to discuss the design with a member of staff.
There are occasions when the computer-based system can not achieve the desired effect but our expert team can manually adjust the file for you.
97% of orders placed via the website go out without any issue at all, all designs are checked
when ordering by our design team to make sure they are good enough to make into a stamp and if they are not we will email or call you to explain what we need to produce the stamp for you.

So caring for rubber stamps, what are the basics and How can you make sure that your rubber stamps are perfectly clean and ready to use.
Rubber stamps are a fairly robust and fuss-free piece of kit, It does not require a huge amount of time or effort to keep your stamp in top condition.
However if you have been using your stamp for a while, or it is a brand new addition, you are going to need to know how best to clean it. This will ensure you maximise your chances of getting a crisp and clean impression every time and so there is no ink contamination from other inks that you have used. It will also mean that your stamp is kept in the best condition possible and that it will last as long as you want it to.
There are a number of ways that you can approach cleaning your rubber stamp and the one that you decide on will really depend on what is best for you.
Stamp cleaners If you want to make sure that your stamp is as clean as possible, then you might want to have a look at some of the specialist stamp cleaners out there that are designed to properly clean any stamps that you have. These are available from rubber stamp suppliers and craft stores and are sold in a bottle. You can then pour the cleaner liquid into a bowl or cup which you can then use to clean the stamps, or, some cleaners come with a pad that can be used to clean the stamp.
Baby/ Wet wipes If you want an easy way to clean your stamps, then baby/wet wipes are a great option and here at stampit we use them ourselves after testing your stamps before we pop them in the box.
They are quick to grab and use, however, it is important to remember that they will only be able to clean away the excess ink on the top of the stamp, they won’t be able to get right into the crevices of the stamp as some cleaners will. We also recommend buying an eco-friendly brand.
Soap and water For a truly old-fashioned approach you can’t beat soap and water. The majority of standard inks can be washed off using a normal washing detergent that you would use when washing up. You can combine this with an old toothbrush which will really help to get into all the crevices.
Top tips for caring for your rubber stamp There are some important things to keep in mind when it comes to cleaning your rubber stamp and ensuring that it is protected. You should never submerge a rubber stamp in water or under a tap, as this is likely to damage the stamp and affect the glue holding the foam and dye in place.
After use you should tap it on a piece of scrap paper, this will remove any surface ink from the stamp and will make sure that cleaning it is that little bit easier. You should also avoid any cleaning products that contain alcohol as this will dry out your stamp and could lead to damage.
It is important that you only ever store your stamp around when they are fully dried out. As you can see, cleaning a rubber stamp is important and it is something that you need to do properly but at the same time caring for your stamp should only take a few quick seconds of your time. So follow these tips and you can make sure that your rubber stamp is going to last and stand the test of time.
