Reasons Why Businessmen Should Use Rubber Stamps On Fabrics

Reasons Why Businessmen Should Use Rubber Stamps On Fabrics

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

 

Event Favours

event favours

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.

 

Brand Awareness

brand awareness

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.

 

Final Thoughts

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.

First off – invitations. You can’t have a wedding if you don’t send out invitations to family and friends. Don’t agonise about the design. This craft can be done by anyone, even you.

If you’re worried, go for something minimal. Nothing goes wrong with the basic look.  Just get yourself a piece of cardstock and your trusted custom made rubber stamps. Ink the stamp thoroughly, stamp it gently straight down on the paper to see good results, let it dry, and you’re done!

 

Wedding Envelopes

You keep envelopes on your cupboard, right? Get them out of there and use them on your invitations. Begin by printing the important details on the envelope first. It gives more emphasis and priority on what significant information you have to remember, such as: who’s getting married, where it’s gonna be, and when it’s gonna happen and most importantly who are you sending it to.

There’s no need for you to spend a fortune, just to buy patterned tablecloths, stamp on them using your custom rubber stamps. Take your fabric and make a style of your own. Design by creating a pattern, repeatedly on the same line, until you start in another line progressively. Whichever angle you prefer the stamp to be facing. Then, let it dry after you’re finished stamping.

 

Festive Buntings

Buntings are also a good choice for decorations. You ca drape it on the ceremonial wall or all over your reception area. Print letters on each triangle, so when you put it together, it forms a word or a phrase for the audience to see. Designs that correlates to the occasion like: rings, cake, an outline of a couple kissing, etc. Also, grain sack is a good alternative if you don’t have any cardstock available as your bunting.

 

Event Balloons

event balloons

Balloons, for wedding can come in a variety of styles and shapes. And depending on what you want you can go crazy stamping them.  And they are frequently used in different occasions, whether it’s celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, and or parties. So, no fuss you can play around with them.  It gives highlight on the event, especially if the print is pleasing to the eye. Just blow at least ¾ air into the deflated balloon, keep the air inside and ink your approved rubber stamp thoroughly. Then press it down accurately as possible to have clean results.

 

Chair Covers

Another cool thing to do with stamps is decorating chair covers with prints. You can go all out crazy with stamping on them or you can take the modest approach of decorating only the chair tie. It can give a very endearing feel to any wedding decoration, since you stamp the names of the people sitting on the seats.

Do note that, it’s preferable to use fabric and have your way in designing using your personalised stamps. Use the ink color that fits the motif of the event, of course. Minimal designs are actually good for these kind of decorations

.

Napkins and Tissues

If you can make DIY prints on chair covers and balloons why not on napkins and tissues right? Blend it to the motif of the wedding. Use your traditional rubber stamps that you either buy on craft stores or old ones you get at thrift shops! Let’s combine creativity and convenience together. Stamp down designs on your napkins and tissues carefully in coordinated lines. Whether you want them in the left or right angle, whichever you prefer.

 

Cookie Giveaways

People are getting more and more innovative. Eating food embossed with custom made rubber stamps using food coloring as ink is a new feat. Pressing your stamp down carefully on unbaked dough takes a good reflection of the exact form of the self-inking stamp. You can do it on cookie treats too!

Take for example, a cookie is covered in royal frosting. It’s good to press down the stamp gently, (because we don’t want the cookie to break) on the frost that’s beginning to harden to create a perfect image. Just remember to use stamps that are new and have never touched ink that’s not edible.

 

Wedding Cake

What’s a wedding without a cake, right? Honestly, the highlight after the bride and groom is the wedding cake! One of the things that makes a bride stressed during the organising of the event. Use the same approach that you did with your cookies on to your cake.

Deco Ribbons

Try using your ribbons or washi tapes in wrapping gifts! It’s a good alternative if you don’t have any wrapping papers available. Just tie the gifts with your stamped ribbons.

Stamp your rubber stamps in a straight line with one after another.  Whichever angle you want to imprint the stamp several times. It’s okay if it’s repetitive, that’s the purpose, so when you tie it around, you can see the stamp design. Make sure that your stamp is inked thoroughly to avoid mistakes.

 

Wedding Pouches

wedding pouches

Pouches are also good gifts to give. Make it even more unique by printing stamp designs on them. Add your personal touch on your pouches. Space is limited, so you can just stamp one or two designs. Embellish the pouch with the wedding couple’s name, the date, or a short message you want to say.

Prepare your custom made rubber stamps that’s already inked thoroughly. Align the area where you want the print to be. Gently stamp down the stamp design on the pouch to avoid outlines, then let it dry.

 

Wedding Cards

Or if you are on a tight budget, give out wedding cards. It is a lot smaller compared to invitations. These cards are basically styled only with the name of the couple and the date of the wedding. Anything else is just left simple and sophisticated.

Use your available craft papers where you will be stamping your personalised stamps. Ready your approved rubber stamp and ink the color of your choice unto the stamp completely. Next, position the stamp on the craft paper directly. Hold the stamp in precision to avoid outline marks on the sides of the result. Then, smoothly remove the stamp to let the card dry.

Developing Essential Skills Using Self Inking Rubber Stamps

Developing Essential Skills Using Self Inking Rubber Stamps

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?

 

Sensory Development

sensory

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

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.

 

Emotional Development

emotional development

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.

 

Cognitive Development

cognitive development

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.

 

Final Thoughts

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.

Use Complementary Fonts

Why stick to one font when you’re making your stamp design? Instead of choosing only Times Roman or Arial or Calibri as your font, use complementary fonts. Two fonts that complement each other, that way you’ll have variation in your design and your font.

Here’s a list of complementary fonts that you can use in your stamp design:

  1. Minion Pro & Super Grotesk
  2. League Spartan & Libre Baskerville
  3. Freight Sans & Freight Text
  4. Kaufmann BT & Neutra Text
  5. Minion Pro & Brandon Grotesque
  6. Helvetica Neue & Garamond
  7. Caslon & Myriad
  8. Fontin & Fontin Sans
  9. Rockwell Bold & Bembo
  10. Souvenir & Futura Bold

A quick way to choose which fonts fit each other best is following the three guidelines below.

  • Choose fonts from Superfamilies meaning fonts of the same family of the typeface like Lucida paired with Lucida Sans or Meta paired with Meta Sans
  • Use contrasting typefaces, fonts that look totally different but look good together examples would be Kaufmann matched with Neutra Text
  • Pair Sub-categories like Old style fonts with Humanist style fonts, Transitional style fonts with Geometric style fonts.

Use Fancy Fonts 

Remember the saying “Dress to Impress” well the same goes for your font. Using fancy looking fonts like Hickory Jack, Pacifico, Lobster, Dancing Script, Great Vibes, Kaushan Script, Arizonia, Edwardian Script and many others give a sense of sophistication to your address. Similar to how the old regal and aristocratic families of the old use to send letters, fonts that look elegant make the readers perceive you to be an elegant and refined person. There’s nothing wrong with giving a good first impression, even if it’s in a letter.

Try All Bold Letters

There’s nothing like a striking, bold introduction right? Using all capital letters to announce your name in your self-inking stamp imprint attracts your receiver’s attention. Once you receive a letter with the name of the sender in bold, it won’t be hard for you to know who sent the letter. It’s a great way to highlight the sender, and the lighter no-bold address below will be read afterwards, like a relief font from all that capital letters you initially shocked them with.

Do note that the only thing that should be in bold letters is your name, not the whole imprint.

Avoid The Usual Fonts

You know, the typical font you use in the office Calibri, Times, Arial, nothing screams ordinary more than an address stamp written in commonly used fonts. Be different, use fonts that will wow whoever receives your letter or document. What’s the use of having personalised stamps made when you’ll be using a font that your competitor is also using?

Add Other Details

Your custom rubber stamp should be just how the word describes it “custom” made for you. So, why not add extra details to your address stamp? Put in details in the design like borders which can either be plain or image borders like leaves, fruits, animals, depending on what you’d like to see in your address stamp.

Aside from borders, you can also incorporate images directly into your design. You want to include your company logo into your address stamp, then, by all means, go ahead. How about including your face or that of your workers in the stamp, you can also do that. The choice is all up to you.

Forget the Traditional

Ignore the old traditional box style for custom rubber stamps and even self-inking stamps, go for the unique style available today. You have a wide variety to choose from, from circle shaped to triangle shaped and even the crazy address stamp imprints written inside a house figure to than inside a shape that looks like a state. With the numerous choices to stand-out why would you settle for the ordinary rubber stamps design?

Conclusion

Address stamps should be boring text that lack imagination and they also should look like an abstract piece of writing. By being creative but at the same time remembering what address stamps are all about you can create stamp imprints that leave a lasting impression on your readers. One that will remind them that address stamps can be beautiful prints too.
