What's the difference between self-inking and pre-inked stamps?
Self-inking stamps are the most popular and have an inner mechanism where the rubber die flips up
and hits the ink pad and flips back down. Self-inkers are great for repetitive stamping and usually last
about 5,000 impressions and can easily be re-inked. Made of water-based ink. Click here for refill ink.
Pre-Inked Stamps offer the most crisp and solid impression and have the ink built right into the rubber die.
Not for repetitive stamping because they need a "rest" in between several impressions. Lifetime guaranteed.
Just a simple press and lasts 50,000 impressions and can easily be re-inked. Click here for refill ink.
