WHY WE USE NATURAL RUBBER
Rubber stamps are not always made from natural rubber.
Some stamps are made out of a plastic called photopolymer.
Photopolymer makes a nice stamp, but it doesn't work well with many inks.
The big office supply stores sell stamp inks and pads that might damage photopolymer.
We can't tell you which two brands don't work well (we're afraid of being sued),
but we can tell you if buy a cheap ink, you get a cheap ink.
That, and you should check our prices, maybe we aren't that much more expensive.
What's so great about stamps made from natural rubber?
Inks meant for anything other than paper will damage photopolymer.
Natural rubber will work with almost all inks meant for rubber stamps.
Inks meants for things other than paper have chemicals in them
to make them work on different surfaces.

These other inks are corrosive to natural rubber if left on the rubber too long, so
you'll need to clean your stamp with stamp cleaner when you're done using them.
Synthentic rubber will work with all inks without being damaged
(but it still needs to be cleaned).
We will make stamps out of synthenic rubber if absolutely necessary.
It costs a lot more to make a stamp out of synthenic rubber,
so we think you should try natural rubber first.
