Can I use my traditional stamp on fabric?
Traditional stamps can be used on multiple surfaces, including fabric. Here's a few things to consider before you get started:
- The type of fabric you're planning to stamp will impact your result. Fabric is generally more porous than paper, which means you may see some of ink bleed into the fibres of the fabric, the extent of this depends on the specific qualities of your fabric [thread count, density, etc].
- Your stamp design will also impact the finished result. Logos with fine detail (such as small text, fine dots, etc) may be blurred when stamping on fabric due to ink bleed. For best results on fabric, we recommend bold, simple designs.
- Finally, consider the ink you use to stamp fabric. Our basic ink pads can work well on fabric, but this ink isn't waterproof so your print will run or fade if the fabric is washed. To make a permanent print, use a fabric ink [we love Memento Luxe or VersaCraft], and heat-set once it's dry.
