When you Upload your design we will make an exact copy of the image you have uploaded on the stamp, The dark parts of any image is what we use to engrave the impression and the white parts are not.
In cases like the image below, if there are a few colours, the darkest colours take priority and the lightest ones will be white. If you have any special requests please state this in the checkout comments section.
Important information about size:
If you are using the Image uploader or the quick stamp creator we will always make your stamp to the full size of the listed stamp size. For instance if you have chosen a 50mm round stamp we will make the stamp 50mm also.
If you need the impression to be 45mm for instance then please leave a message advising us. If you don't we cant offer remakes free of charge.
We do have an advanced designer that does allow you to scale an impression to the correct size also ( Full Designer) and using this option allows you to ensure the correct measurements as it provided to scale sizes live on site.
Do I need to invert my Image?
There is no need to invert or mirror your image, as a standard process we invert all images in batches when engraving. Simply design or upload your artwork your stamp as you want it to appear when stamped.
What file formats should I use?
We do require good quality artwork in order to produce your custom stamps to a high standard.
Our online stamp designer will only work with Jpegs and PNG files and we recommend the DPI to be 300 or more. If you're at all unsure please email us or click the chat button as we can take a look at your artwork for you. In most cases, we can work with your artwork.
If you wish to send us an EPS, Vector or any other format other than a Jpeg that is fine also, please upload your design using the image upload feature.
Will my artwork work as a rubber stamp?
We have many years experience working with artwork and we can say that we can make most artwork work. Ideally monotone images are best as they require the least work and we can normally make a carbon copy of the a monotone image as a rubber stamp.
If you feel your artwork may not be suitable please email us at [email protected] or click the chat button and we will be happy to take a look for you. We never charge extra for working on your designs to make them suitable as a stamp. In the rare occasions if we can not work with your image we are happy to help with an alternative impression suggestion.
I need my stamp to be an exact size?
We do have a wide range of sizes available for both self inking and rubber stamps. However there might be times when you need your text or impression be exactly a specific size for your needs.
We are more than happy to accommodate this and we can ensure exact impression sizes.
All you need to do it upload the text / artwork you require onto our stamp maker software to the closest size available. For instance if you need the impression to be 27.5mm exact you would select the 30mm stamp.
Once you have uploaded your design or created it using our design tool simply checkout and leave a note in the comment section stating that it needs to be the exact size required.
Our designers take extra care to check these comments and they will make sure they are followed.
