STAMPERS

Self-Inking Stamp

The self-inking stamps have a modern look, with a black exterior and protective dust cap. Each stamp has a built in ink cartridge that will last for hundreds of imprints.

Ink colours: black, blue, aqua, red, green, purple, brown, burgundy, fluorescent pink / ink colours are not interchangeable

Best imprint results occur on paper with a smooth surface; the ink can ‘feather’ on porous or textured papers. Handmade papers are not recommended.

If you have a question about the paper you wish to imprint, send a sample to Tulip Press for testing.

Wood Handle Rubber Stamp

The wood ‘hand’ stamps are constructed in a traditional style with a red rubber die, mounted on a wood base + handle.

This stamp requires a separate ink pad.

Ink pads are not available through Tulip Press. Inks can be sourced through office and craft supply stores.

Seal Embosser

The desk style (meaning it has feet and sits flat on a desk) seal embossers can be designed for a top or bottom ‘load’, depending on where the image will be positioned on the paper.

An embossed image is raised without ink.

Labels

Labels are available in white matte or gloss, in various shapes (circle, oval, square & rectangle) and sizes – to suit the design.
