Address Stamps Self Inking

Looking for address stamps self inking? You have found them.

We often get asked, what is the standard size?

Well, there isn’t a standard size.

Everyone has a different purpose and a different size of item they are stamping on, from a standard envelope to an A4 envelope, or an invoice book, and the stamp size then needs to adapt to that use.

As to what sizes – they start probably at the 38 x 14mm size to the left here and progress right up to the largest Trodat Printy 4926 or Shiny S830 models at 75 x 38mm, like the one on the right. 4926bk1 14 1

For anything larger or in high-use situations, then the Trodat Professional models are recommended.

Generally, a rectangular shaped stamp like one of these will be one of the best for an address stamp nz.

I have a stamp now and need another one just like it.

If you bought your current stamp from Self-Inking Stamps it is very likely we have it on file already and it is simple to make another one for you. Just let us know what name or order number you have ordered with before and we should be able to find it.

If you bought it from a store like Warehouse Stationery, Office Max or Office Products Depot we can make another easily for you. Tell us the model number and stamp it on some paper, scan that and send it to us as a pdf file and we can import it trace over it and make one the same. If you need some details changed if you have moved or something like that we can easily change it.

By the way, did you know the rubber die can be changed on your stamp? You don’t have to buy a new one if the body is still working fine. To do that just type in the box at the very top of the page the model number like “4912” and click enter and the rubber die option will be amongst all the options for that model of stamp results.  Here is how to change the rubber die in your current stamp body.

Can I include my logo or an image with my self inking address stamp?

Yes you can.

You can upload it in the box “Add a file here – vector image free, pdf, ai or cdr good – jpeg & screen shots cost extra” on any product. trodat mci 5212

As mentioned the website prefers smaller pdf files to upload. jpeg, png, screen shots and email logos are just too low in resolution to get an image you will be proud of. What we ultimately have to do is use a vector image to laser engrave the rubber to ensure exact replication for you. If you have a vector image like a .ai file that is fantastic please send it to us direct at


It is really common to have an image on a stamp. Just tell us on the order where on the stamp you would like an image and then give us the text you want to use as well. For a stamp this image must be one colour, however. There cannot be blending of colour or shading. When you stamp it is ink or not, it is as simple as that.

Yes we can make you a multi-colour stamp, however, the colour must be 2.5mm apart and any one part must be more than 7 x 7mm.

See this page here for our multi-colour rubber stamps choices.

What font do I use?

Most common fonts are Calibri or Arial. Calibri is slightly less formal. Both work really well in stamps.

Arial is a longer text and if you have a lot of characters on one row it may prove to be too long for some stamps.

To make it shorter we can change to Arial Narrow which saves a lot of space

Comic Sans is quite casual and works well in a stamp.

You can have a different font and size on each row or even each word if you are really going for the funky look. Just type this in the Notes box for us to understand, and even the point sizes too. Or even attach a file describing what you need, this could be a sketch.

How many rows of text can I get on my self inking address stamp?

To demonstrate what fits into a stamp we will use the simple line “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” and use the font ‘Calibri’ in 12 point size.

Then you can see how many rows of text you can fit into the different stamp sizes. This is just a guide for you as the point size of the font can make a big difference for the number of lines that will fit.

Start at the 38 x 14mm stamp below left here and go to the 75 x 38mm on the right.

So which address stamp size is the best for you?

We have a page with examples of stamps using a 12 point Calibri font and it shows how many rows and characters can fit on the different body sizes.

Have a look here at the rubber stamps that are possible using this format.

What colour ink can we get in our self inking stamp?

There are 5 standard colours,

  • black,
  • red,
  • blue,
  • green
  • and violet.

There a few models that cannot use all of these.

Then there are another 11 colours which are used in the multi-colour stamps as well.

Some stamps we can use special ink pads and add one of those colours.

You can see the colour chart here.

How do I order my address stamp?

You can use the sizes guide on this pdf here you can use this product below which, from the information you provide, we can suggest a product or two that might interest you.

Enter in as many details as you like here and this will fine tune the answer to maybe just one or two stamps. Or just the perfect one depending on what you enter.

How long will it take for my personalised stamp to get to me?

Here is where to find the answer on that one. The more times it needs re-proofing the longer it takes. It can at times add another day each time through the system if we are really busy. The more information you can give us at the start the faster we get to the perfect stamp for you. Remember that getting it perfect before it is made is much easier than later, take your time and get it right. You will be using this stamp thousands of times in the future and you deserve it to be just right. Don’t worry you can change it in the future too.

I have an address stamp now and it is running out of ink, what do I do?

There are two remedies for this.

  1. Use a replacement ink pad
  2. Add ink to the ink pad

1. These rubber self-inking stamps have replacement ink pads that we stock here. To do that just type in the box at the very top of the page “Search for Products” the model number like “4912” and click the magnifying glass or press enter and all the options for that model of stamp will show in the results. Just choose the colour of pad you need. The courier fee on your order will be reduced when it gets to us for just an ink pad or two.  Here is where to find instruction on how to replace the ink pad.

2.  For adding ink any water based ink in a standard ink pad will do.  We have these inks here and you can find them on the “Stamp Ink” page. Just pop the current ink pad out and add few drops at a time then test, it is always better to add too little then add some more if necessary than too much and blur up the words on your stamp from bleeding ink.
