If you hear the word rubber stamps, what comes to your mind first? Arts and Crafts? Office Files and Documents? Card Making? Of course, that’s because most stamps are made for cards and papers. Now, how does stamping on fabrics sound to you? Possible— but not really worth trying.
Stamping on fabrics though is possible. All you need to have is a permanent ink or archival ink and a rubber stamp, and you’re good to go. Stamping on fabrics opens the doors for using stamps for mere papers. You can even use your rubber stamps in giving favours from your events as well as spreading brand awareness.
Here are 2 Reasons Why Rubber Stamping is Beneficial for Your Business
Personalised things are more expensive than its regular counterpart. A plain white canvas coin purse may cost a dollar, however, if it’s personalised, the price may double or even triple. If you’re personalising things for yourself, then this increase may not be a big deal. However, if your intention is to give it as event favour, the total cost may hurt your budget.
Giving event favours to your guests can boost their mood as well as give you and your business a positive impression. Event favours though, even if you’re ordering them in bulks, can be costly, mainly because your brand or your name needs to be imprinted in the event favour you’re giving to your guests.
So, what does this have to do with stamps?
As I have mentioned earlier, if you’re going to buy unprinted tote bags, coin purses, or anything that’s made up of fabric, it will not be as costly as it is personalised. This is where rubber stamps can be of help. With a custom-made rubber stamp and a permanent ink or an archival ink, you can easily put your brand on any fabrics. It will be advantageous if you already had a customised rubber stamp with your brand’s logo, or your name in it, this way you’ll only need to buy the ink.
Aside from event favours that you can give to your guests after business events, you can also stamps to spread brand awareness. You can use stamps on flyers and paper bills, but the thing is that almost everyone is doing this. In business, you need to stand out to be noticed. So, instead of handing out flyers, try buying a bulk of plain white canvas coin purse. Then, using your personalised rubber stamp and permanent ink, make an impression on the canvas.
There’s a lot of things you can do with your rubber stamp and your permanent ink. You can even incorporate this on your table napkin. This way, whenever your customers dine, they can see the name of your business.
I remember back then, my aunt used to sell strawberry jams. She and my mom were close so we frequently went to her place, and I would help her pack her jams. She had a lot of people that order from her back then because her jam was really delicious and she had a peculiar way of packing her jams. Yes, she still kept them in a bottle of a jar. However, she places a piece of light pink-coloured square cloth on the lid of the jar before she closes her bottle with the cap. My job was to put the cloth on the lid and then top it with the cap. Her square cloth though we’re not plain, she would write her name ‘Jamie’s Jams’ at the centre in each of the cloth. That was how she kept her business going.
If only back then she had custom made stamps or even a self-inking stamp for the fabrics she would put on top of her jar, she would be able to finish her task faster as well as let people know about her strawberry jams.
Rubber Stamps are not only for card making, scrapbooking, and another paper crafting. It can also be used on offices and businesses, not only for the files and documents but on fabrics. Widening the range of things you could do with it for your business.
