Rubber Stamps are one of the most crucial thing that is required in any office.
A rubber stamp consists of a rubber which can be laser engraved or made with certain set of texts or designs to imprint a particular content which then stuck to a holder or a device. With the help of ink or ink pad these will imprint the content on to the paper or any other surfaces.
There are 3 types of Rubber Stamps in the market now. And they are
- Traditional Rubber Stamps
- Self Inking Rubber Stamps
- Pre Inked Rubber Stamps
Traditional Rubber Stamps
As the name suggests these are those which needs to be used with an Ink Pad. They normally come in Handle Shape. They are pretty easy to use. First, press the rubber in the stamp against the ink pad for it to take the required amount of ink and then press it against the paper or any other surface to imprint the design.
Self Inking Rubber Stamps
These are the advanced version of Traditional Rubber Stamps. They have inbuilt ink pads. In their initial position they stay pressed against the ink pads and when pushed down, they rotate 180 degrees and imprints the impressions on to the paper or any given surface.
These can give up to 5,000 impressions and can be refilled.
Quality of the impressions is as good as traditional rubber stamps
Pre Inked Rubber Stamps
These are latest entry to the stamping industry. The ink is impregnated or absorbed to the rubber present in them giving the impressions when pressed against the surface. Because of lack of clarity, these are often called as Self Inking Rubber Stamps too.
These can give up to 30,000 impression and can be refilled.
When it comes to impression quality and ease of use, Pre Inked Rubber Stamp tops the list.
