Some of you probably already do this. Ignore, if so.
You can use even the cheapest of rubber stamps and still get a high-quality image, if you take these steps.
to begin get a baby wipe or wet paper towel ready, so you aren't reaching for one once the ink is on the stamp.
I am using a very inexpensive foam stamp to demonstrate.
After inking, you will notice a lot of extra ink on the edges of the stamp. If you were to stamp it right now, it would leave a border, which is something you definitely don't want.
Before I stamp it on the paper, I always run a baby wipe around the edge to get the extra ink off.
The edges are now ink free
Breathe on the stamp, to help re-moisten it and stamp it onto the paper.
A perfect image EVERY time. Especially helpful when you are stamping on a layout and don't want to take a chance risking a bad image.
