Is the rubber stamp I will be receiving re-inkable?

The rubber stamps sold on this website are fully re-inkable, and good for up to 50,000 impressions before re-inking is neccessary.

Is it possible to change the ink color of my rubber stamps?

Changing the ink color of your rubber stamp is not recommended as ink formulas for each color are different and do not mix well. Mixing colors results in blurry impressions as the ink holding pores of rubber ink stamps can get blocked when a different ink formula is used. True colors cannot be obtained by mixing different formulas e.g. a black ink formula mixed with red will not render a true red.

What is the best way to clean my rubber stamp?

Occasionally, lint and paper dust may adhere to the surface of your stamp. To clean, simply, take a piece of cellophane tape and press it across the rubber stamp with your finger. When you remove the tape, you will remove the residue as well. As you stamp, you will find the clarity of the impressions made by your rubber stamp as clear as the day it was bought.
