What type of ink can I use with a traditional stamp?

Our traditional stamps can be used with almost any high-quality water based ink, and the advantage of a traditional stamp is that you can pick and choose and use different colours or types of ink depending on the surface you're stamping. Ensure you do not use an oil or solvent based ink for traditional stamps as this will damage the stamp.

Our ink pads are dye-based and made from high quality, acid-free and quick-drying archival ink. The ink is smear resistant after drying, but not waterproof. It's suitable for multiple uses, provided your surface has a porous surface for the ink to dry. 

We recommend using only high quality inks with your traditional stamp. Some types of ink, such as alcohol-based ink can easily damage the polymer over time.
