FAQ - Artwork

Do you make custom stamps?

Absolutely! We can create a custom stamp with artwork supplied by you or alternatively we can create a custom design for you. All of our custom designs are text based design only and are created in a style that is similar to our stamps listed in our Etsy Shop. If you love the style of our shop… you’re gonna love our custom designs ☺

 

Do you provide proofs?

Yes proofs will be provided when a 'Custom Design' is purchased. Please note that issuing proofs may delay the production time.

 

Where do I send my custom artwork/logo?

Please upload your artwork during the ordering process (Select "Upload Artwork" on the product page), or alternatively send your artwork by email to hello@thestamppress.com.

  • The preferred file types for Rubber Stamps are; JPEG or PNG but we also accept PDF, AI, PSD and EPS.
  • The preferred file type for Embossers & Wax Stamps is Ai. (Illustrator with all text outlined : Outline = Select text > Shift+Command+O). Alternatively, we can also accept JPEG, PDF,  & PNG files.

Please ensure artwork is clear, crisp, high resolution and legible. The larger the file the better... I can edit the size to suit the stamp size.  

 

Artwork tips for Custom Rubber Stamps

  • The preferred file types for Rubber Stamps are; JPEG or PNG but we also accept PDF, AI, PSD and EPS.
  • The artwork must be black and white only, with no greys, color or shading.
  • The black area in your image will be the STAMPED impression on the page. (The white area will be removed by the engraver)
  • Ensure artwork is clear, crisp, high resolution and legible. The larger the file the better... we can edit the size to suit the stamp size. 
  • 300dpi resolution is preferable.
  • Avoid too much white space in the centre of the stamp as the background may be visible on the stamped impression.
  • Avoid thin lines.
  • Avoid using a font size less than 8pt.

 

Artwork tips for Custom Embossing Seals

  • The preferred file type for Embossers is Ai. (Illustrator file with all text outlined : Outline = Select text > Shift+Command+O). Alternatively, we can also accept JPEG, PDF,  & PNG files.
  • The black areas in your image will be the raised part of the paper.
  • Ensure artwork is clear, crisp, high resolution and legible. The larger the file the better... we can edit the size to suit the stamp size. 
  • 300dpi resolution is preferable.
  • Thin fonts work best. When embossing a page, the paper folds up and around each letter/shape- this naturally creates a little thickness.
  • Avoid using a font size less than 8pt.

 

Artwork tips for Custom Wax Seals

  • The preferred file type for Wax Stamps is Ai. (Illustrator file with all text outlined : Outline = Select text > Shift+Command+O). Alternatively, we can also accept JPEG, PDF,  & PNG files.
  • The black areas in your image will be raised when pressed into the wax.
  • Ensure artwork is clear, crisp, high resolution and legible. The larger the file the better... we can edit the size to suit the stamp size. 
  • 300dpi resolution is preferable.
  • Thin fonts work best. When embossing a page, the paper folds up and around each letter/shape- this naturally creates a little thickness.
  • Avoid using a font size less than 8pt.

 

I’ve seen a design I like that is created by another artist, will you copy it for me and turn it into a stamp?

Unfortunately we cannot directly copy another artist’s design, without first obtaining the correct permissions. We must respect the works and rights of all artists. We may be able to create something in a similar style/”inspired” by the design… please contact us to discuss.
