Glossary and Terms
We have included some common terms and types of rubber stamps you will hear and encounter when shopping around for rubber stamps. We hope this section is helpful.
Rubber Stamps: A pre-inked rubber stamp holds ink within its own
ink-saturated die, eliminating the need for an ink pad. Simply press
the pre-inked rubber stamp against the paper to make a clean impression.
Laser Engraved Rubber Stamps: : Laser engravers can create detailed graphics, replicate intricate logos, and engrave at various depths for a more textured finished product. All Xstamper® rubber stamps are laser engraved using the latest laser technology. This process is by far the most convenient and offers the best quality impression.
Stamps: Gel pre-inked rubber stamps have been made for the past
30 years and are known for starting out with a clean and clear impression
that does not feather (bleed). Gel rubber stamps are frequently inconsistent
in quality resulting in warped dies or leaking stamps. Because gel rubber
stamps are not very durable and the production process is very messy
and time consuming most manufacturers are abandoning them.
With heavy-duty construction and precision components,
these stamps ensure a smooth, quiet action. They are best used for rugged
environments or where high-volume stamping occurs.

Stamps: Economical with a lightweight yet very durable
construction, these stamps are perfect for everyday use. They have
been well-engineered for both ease and frequency of use.
Rubber Stamps: Popular in large part due to their reasonable price
and their quick delivery time; however, the ink pad that is necessary
is messy and inconvenient. Most of these rubber stamps are made with
a photopolymer die. The dies are made of rubber if they will be used
with non-porous (fast dry) inks. Our Artline® ink pads are heavily
pigmented and produce a darker, bolder impression than competitive products.
Mount: Traditional stamp used for large impression areas, the
rocker mount’s impression plate is curved allowing maximum image
coverage from middle to sides. With traditional stamps, no message is
too long or too short making them very accommodating.
inks: Inks used to make a permanent mark on glass, plastic,
metal or glossy paper. Usual drying time of 15 seconds or less.
Engraved Rubber: Engraved rubber is available in many different
colors, textures and finishes. Fabrication equipment including the
latest in laser and digital technology is used
