Stamp Pads

Stamp pads for any rubber stamp have many custom and personalized forms, including ones with washable ink.

There are a number of uses for rubber stamps and they are a common business accessory as well as being used for arts and craft work. While there are a few different styles of rubber stamp available, the type that has been most commonly used over the years is a simple rubber face with a wooden or plastic handle. These need stamp pads for use and both rubber stamp and pads are widely available for sale.

While a rubber stamp is the item that has the text or design on it, stamp pads are the container that holds the ink needed by the rubber stamp to transfer the image to paper. They are typically a small, flat plastic box which holds an absorbent material that is saturated with ink. The rubber stamp is basically pressed on to the pad which coats it evenly with ink and then the image can be stamped on to paper.

There are a few types of stamp pads available with variations including the color of the ink with black, blue and red being the most common and also the type of absorbent material used with felt and foam being common options. They also come with a variety of inks and some of these include chalk ink, watermark ink and gel ink.

A number of stamp pads are designed to be used to completion and then replaced with some gel based ink pads being commonly used in this manner. However the majority of pads can be refilled and there are a number of small ink bottles which are sold specifically for the purpose of re-inking pads for rubber stamps.

Whether you use rubber stamps for business or arts and crafts purposes, ink pads for these can be found for sale at a variety of different outlets. Office supply stores are a good option and retailers such as Staples and Office Depot have a wide variety of pads and refill ink available for sale. The products they sell are typically aimed at the business market. Costs for these can start at around $3.50 for a pack of three foam pads in red, blue and black ink.
