Minuteman Press’s various kinds of affordable and quality rubber stamps in Germiston

  • Affordable Mounted rubber stamps:  The most common stamps, the mounted type, are used to produce detail images. These come with a deep etch and can be used to stamp onto cloth, fabric and soft materials such as clay or pottery. These stamps are made of three parts – the dye, the cushion and the block or mount. The block or mount gives user a grip for precise stamping.
  • Quality Un-mounted rubber stamps:  This is an alternative to the regular mounted type; this stamp is made of just the ‘dye’ part. These are cheaper than the mounted types. They can be either mounted permanently on the stamp or used with an alternative mounting system. These are less bulky and lighter than traditional rubber stamps. They represent a good value for money. However, the only disadvantage to using these stamps is that they need to be cut out from the sheet before use.
  • Acrylic stamps:  Also known as clear stamps, these are used with acrylic blocks for a more precise and straightforward placement. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, they are reusable as they can be cleaned and put back in the package for the next use. They are also known as clear rubber stamps, photo-polymer stamps and polymer stamps. When new, they are completely transparent and can be attached to a stamping block. These are also cheaper than traditional rubber stamps and less bulky too.
