If you own a business, Common Seals must be a familiar word for you. However, if not, you may want to get more acquainted with the word, especially if you intend to make one. Common seals refer to a Company’s official seal or official logo. Most of the time, it is used for legal transactions. However, today, it can also be used for spreading your brand/ business’ name.
2 Types of Common Seals
There are 2 Kinds of Common Seals that most businesses use. The Embossed Seal and the Printed or Inked Logo. Both types of common seals are used to make an impression on your files and documents. However, both the embossed and the stamped kind has its own difference.
An embossed seal is very useful for the files and documents that you don’t want to be replicated or be photocopied such as certificates, enrollment forms and other important documents. Embossing your Seal on a piece of means you’re raising certain parts of the paper to create an impression. Which why it cannot be reproduced photographically and is impossible to photocopy.
A note with a ‘Not valid without the Company Seal’ is printed on every document. Which is important in keeping your file authentic. Although, the prints can be photocopied. The embossed seal part of the document cannot be replicated. Without the seal, the document is not valid.
A stamped seal is commonly used for papers and documents that can be duplicated or photocopied such as the Company Head’s Signature. Stamping on important files and documents means you’re making an impression on a piece of paper through pressing ink on certain parts of the paper.
Most of the time if custom made stamps were created to be used for signatures, the stamp is still used together with an Embossing Seal to guarantee the document’s authenticity. Stamped Seals can be used aside from stamping signatures. It can be used for certifying documents for its authenticity or can be used for imprinting/ stamping the company/ business logo for spreading brand awareness.
There’s a huge variety of stamped common seals in Australia, such as rubber stamps, personalised rubber stamps, and self-inking stamps. You can order rubber stamp online for your business’ common seal.

Arts and crafts never fail to bring a smile on a kid’s face. It’s that time when they get to be messy, play with paints, draw things, use colourful self-inking rubber stamps, and not get scolded. It’s also that time where they can bond with their parents, teachers, or other children their age.
However, there’s more to stamping than colours, and artworks. Rubber stamps help children in developing essential skills such as Sensory, Fine Motor, Emotions, as well as their Cognitive Ability.
How do self-inking rubber stamps help build up a child’s skills?
Arts and Crafts, specifically, Stamping can help kids develop their senses. If a baby or a toddler comes in contact with the soft fur of a cat for the first time, the baby’s nervous system has yet to process the foreign feeling and generate a response from it. This response is then remembered by the brain— thus developing the kid’s senses.
Anything that allows a toddler to explore or interact freely with a variety of materials with different texture, colours, shapes, and sizes as well as temperature, can help a child improve their senses.
Whenever a toddler is stamping, the child can feel the stamp, as well as the surface they’re putting stamps on. This is why most preschool teachers have a variety of stamps, alphabet stamps, numbering stamps, rubber stamps, self-inking stamps and all sorts of colourful ink pads. Preschool teachers let the kids stamp on rough walls, cottony fabrics, smooth papers or anything that has textures as it helps them develop their senses.
Fine Motor Skills
Another thing that your child develops when they’re stamping is the fine motor skills. Whenever a child manipulates small items such as self-inking stamps, paintbrush, or holding a pencil, they’re using small muscles in their body, specifically in their hands, fingers and eyes. This can be a pretty complex thing for toddlers. Notice how most toddlers find it hard to use their little spoon whenever they’re eating? This is because their fine motor skills haven’t fully developed yet.
Stamping helps toddlers and babies develop their fine motor skills. Especially since you need to use your hands and fingers if you’re stamping. One thing you’d have to look out for whenever you’re stamping with babies is to use stamps that are not very small. Toddlers have the possibility to shove all sorts of things to their mouth, and you don’t want your kid to be choked with stamps.
If a child is always given activities that follow a process, the child is not given the freedom to express. Arts though is an excellent way to let the child express what he or she truly feels. Giving a child the liberty to express himself/ herself is a good way of developing their emotions.
Using rubber stamps or self-inking stamp together with other art materials such as crayons and watercolours, and a paper, a kid, can express their emotions. The good thing about this is that you’re teaching a kid to express himself/ herself without using oral communication.
Self-expression is an excellent way to develop their emotion. Which is why teachers in preschool allow their students to express themselves through art. Using colourful stamps, paints, crayons, and watercolour. And the best part in here? The kids are always proud of their finished artwork. So if your kid goes home with a paper in his/ her hand, praise him/ her for expressing themselves.
Stamping also allows a child to develop their creativity as well as creative thinking. Think of it like this: whenever a child uses stamps, he/ she thinks of where to place it, and how it can help improve her artwork. Aside from that, they need to think from the variety of self-inking rubber stamps and use it for their artwork. How can a stamp beautify his/ her artwork, what colour will he/ she use?
The Cognitive ability of a child is then developed through using his/ her critical thinking, creativity, as well as his/ her problem-solving skills. And then combining these 3 to come up with an idea.
Developing a child’s Sensory, Fine Motor, Emotions, and Cognitive Skills is crucial as these are the basic skills they need to possess as these are the skills that help them develop their own personality. You don’t need to have expensive art materials for your child to develop these skills. You can buy and order rubber stamps online, and even personalise these rubber stamps for you and your child to use.

What do you usually look for when you’re buying a rubber stamp sets? Do you look at the price first? Or, do you check out the brand?
Do you go on Google and ask for the review about the product from the stamp size all the way up to how long does it last?
Stamp sets make a good investment if you buy the right one. And will the endless choices of rubber stamps present in your local stores or even on the internet, you may find yourself ogling at too many choices and too many brands. That’s why we came up with a 5 point checklist to help you decide on which stamp set to buy.
Brand. Why brand? There are a lot of rubber stamps for sale out in the market. And with the endless array of products to choose from, how would you know which one to buy? Looking at the brand of the stamp sets available minimises your long list, by seeing which brands have made a name for themselves in the market you know which ones make quality stamps.
Customer and market review shouldn’t be taken lightly. Top brands are TOP brands because they receive high praise and good reviews from stamp buyers and product critics. It means that they make stamps that are of good quality, from good quality rubber to crisp, clean prints on paper. Ever experienced buying a stamp that looks ok but when you used it, it ended up leaving a messy mark on your precious document?
Without being selective about your choices of stamp sellers, you will end up buying a faulty product like the one mentioned in the scenario above. By choosing only from the best brands, you’ll be able to buy a product that worth every dime you pay.
Most people put budget first above quality, but seeing as you’re reading this article means that you care about the rubber stamp you buy. Cost is secondary to product quality. Once, you’ve determined which brands are worth choosing from, you then have to set up criteria for each stamp. Cost or how much the product is worth tops that criteria.
For example you have four brands to choose from, and you find that even though they all produce high-grade stamps, Brand A sells its stamp at a much lower price than Brand B, C and D. The cost alone gives you a winning factor and you can decide whether to buy the stamp from Brand A or not.
By comparing the cost of the brands, you can also compare which brands offer a better deal, for example, Brand B sells their stamps at ₤50, but Brand C sells theirs at just ₤45. You do more research, and you find out that both brands produce stamps that are similar in quality to each other. You’ll end up saving ₤5 more by choosing Brand C than Brand B.
The third detail that you should look into is the portability of the stamp. And portability goes beyond the stamp being lightweight and easy to carry. Since stamps, rubber or not, use ink, you have to make sure if you can carry and place your stamp anywhere.
You wouldn’t want to buy a product that leaves ink stains all over your work area, from your folders to your record books and even on your table, right? Can you carry your stamp with you when you travel or will it stain your bag, clothes and other important personal belongings? You want a product that does the job of stamping and not staining your belongings.
And obviously, since you’re looking for a portable product, you have to check the size and weight of the stamp set that you’ll be buying. Bulky stamps make it hard for you to use them or carry them wherever you go, even though they make good paperweights, you should go for easy to carry, right-sized stamps.
4) Ease of Use
Even the best and highest quality stamp can be pretty useless when it requires complicated to use. Using the stamp you bought shouldn’t be rocket science, it ought to be straightforward and uses simple common sense. Not require you to learn complicated features that need a manual before you can master it.
Aside from how to use the stamp, replacing the ink shouldn’t be hard as well. Rubber stamps are straightforward when it comes to applying ink; you just use a stamp pad loaded with ink. But, as for self-inking stamps and those that use cartridge this can get a little tricky.
Look for and buy a product that won’t give you and the other people who will use it a headache when it’s time for you to use it.
Lastly, on your checklist for buying stamps sets is durability. A product that lasts you a few months looks like throwaway money compared to a product that can last you for years. Have you ever owned a stamp that only lasted a month or more? You know that low-quality ones that seem to disintegrate like wax with each use.
Or how about those stamps that look like incredible hulk but gets damage after the first fifty use. Who doesn’t want a durable product? You’d want a product that lasts, right? And when it comes to a stamp that will probably be used for hundreds of times by you or by people you work with.
These five criteria for buying a rubber stamp can help you buy a product that’s usable, durable and cost-effective. Looking at top brands for stamps rubber or not, wouldn’t hurt but actually, help you make better decisions. And looking for products based on ease of use, portability, cost, and durability will result in finding a product that becomes a staple in your work area. So, don’t settle for the mediocre when buying for stamp sets, instead be selective and buy only the best.

Embossers are similar to stamps in that they produce impressions. However, unlike standard stamps, they do not use ink to make prints. Instead, they crimp the paper, which then leaves a permanent embossed finish. Embossers embellish and secure various documents, leaving an unforgettable discreet imprint. If you choose embossers, you can choose between desktop or pockets models, depending on the paper you need to mark.
Electronic stamps (also called digital stamps) are alternative stamps that electronically print custom texts, numbers, date, and time, all while securing and tracking all your documents. That means electronic stamps print out impressions to electronic documents like a PDF, a Google doc, or a Word document. The print finish looks and feels pretty much the same way as when you apply a rubber stamp to a paper document, making it convenient as you no longer have to punch the stamp manually. Electronic stamps come in a variety of formats, which includes.JPG, PNG and.TIFF.
