Inking Large Stamps

While it is sometimes possible to buy jumbo inkpads, they are very expensive and have a limited range of colours and ink types. Instead, you can use inkpads that have their inked pad raised a few millimetres above the plastic casing, such as VersaFine. Our Medium and Extra Large inkpads are not suitable for this technique of inking up large stamps.

1. Hold the stamp face up in one hand. Hold the inkpad with your other hand. A good craft inkpad such as VersaFine is designed so the inked surface stands 5 mm above the plastic casing.
2. Dab the inkpad over the stamp.
3. Using a dabbing movement, cover the stamp with your inkpad.
4. The stamp is now fully inked.
5. Hold your stamp carefully over the surface to be stamped.
6. Press firmly
7. The finished result!
