What is a Rubber Stamp?
A rubber stamp is a design or pattern which is molded, carved , engraved or vulcanized
on to a rubber sheet, on which some ink is applied. It is to be noted that it is not completely made of rubber. Any design stamped onto
surfaces is actually imprinted first into the rubber sheet having raised
surfaces and this rubber is attached to a base commonly made of wood.
Plastic and foam bases are also used for making a rubber stamp.
The ink made of any dye or pigment when applied on the stamp and
pressed onto any type of medium, which can be a fabric or paper, we see the
colored image on the surface. In other words, the colored image on it is transferred to the medium.
Rubber stamps are available in a variety of sizes, from a 1 cm or 1 inch
wide single heart or star to complex outlines, geometry designs or floral
scenes that could fill an entire paper sheet.
