Want to stamp on fabric? A useful comparison of stamp pads

Standard

Want to stamp on fabric?  Many of the people who want me to create a stamp for them also wish to use their stamp on fabric to create tags and stamp their fabric products.  I don’t have a lot of experience stamping on fabric however I do know that some stamp pads claim to work on a variety of surfaces including fabric.  So this week I decided to do a bit of research to find out which stamp pad might work best on fabric.

I found this great article on crafttestdummies.com which compares a whole range of craft stamp pads commonly available in crafting and scrapbooking/paper craft shops and of course online.  All the stamp pads were stamped on fabric, ironed to set them and then washed.  You can read the article here:

There also seems to be a new stamp pad available which is specifically for stamping fabric.  I haven’t yet been able to find anyone who has “tested” it and reported back on how well they work.  Scribbles Fabric Stamp Pads claim to be permanent, machine washable and non-toxic.  You can see the colour range and buy them online at Createforless and other online craft stores:

Good luck with your stamping on fabric!  I’d love to hear your views on which stamp pad you find works best on fabric.

Cheers,

Personalised Chrissy Stamps – for small business packaging, wrapping handmade gifts or general gift giving

Standard

Personalised Christmas stamps by Firefly Stamps.

Was hoping  to have these up earlier in the week – better late than never!

These personalised stamps are ideal for small business packaging giving your current or special festive packaging a personalised Christmas message and a place to attach further product or business details.  Some ‘handmade’ business owners offer gift wrapping at Christmas time just add a ‘To:’ and ‘From:’ to the back of your stamped tag for your customers to add a special message to their friend or loved one.  If you choose to have your stamp made as a transparent stamp on a clear acrylic block I will provide  small ‘To:’ and ‘From:’ stamps in a matching font so that you can create your gift tags quickly and easily.  (I am unable to provide these extra stamps free of charge with a wood mounted stamp).

Choose your favourite graphic and font from the options provided, add your own greeting and name and you have a truly personalised stamp you can use for many years to come.  Price $24.90 plus $6.90 trackable postage (AUD).

Available through my madeit or craftumi stores or alternatively send me a message through facebook.

Less than 3 months to Christmas!!!

Cheers,
