Selecting your self-inking stamp can be confusing for newcomers. So many choices are available in size, style and colours. And then there’s questions around how to replace ink pads and general tips to help keep quality high.
Trodat and Shiny stamps have replaceable ink pads in them. To replace the ink pad: Press the stamp down slightly – this separates the ink pad from the rubber die and will allow the pad to move plus lineup a slot in the back for the ink pad to move out.
If you are wanting to replace your stamp or a part like an ink pad or rubber die you could search for the product in the website.
Steps to do this are:
This should give you all the options for the stamp model including:

Self-Inking Stamps uses NZ Post to deliver orders.
This gives multiple delivery location options:
To make delivery easy we charge flat rates for three different sizes. Anywhere in the NZ Post New Zealand delivery area. Whether you are in Bluff or Kaitaia or anywhere in between.
We try to get as many orders as possible into parcels to achieve the overnight classification of parcels to urban areas. This usually means next working day delivery. Some deliveries are possible on Saturday.
Larger items and boxes often will go into a different delivery stream and may take 1-2 days more.
Please allow extra time for rural delivery. Sometimes next working day has been achieved. Yes, shocked us too!
Is pick up possible?
Yes, pick up is possible and can be specified on your order at checkout. There is no extra cost for this option. We prefer a user pays model to lower your cost. Delivery is extra.
Pick up is from Huapai, northwest of Auckland city.
Self-inking stamps choose not to use single use plastic.
Our packages are either plant based compostable plastics or paper with cushioning.
For larger items we use carboard boxes and sheet cardboard.
Our tape tapes are usually plant based, paper and/or compostable.
The label on the outside of the package is also compostable. We felt it was especially important to include this in the compostable capability. Who wants to try and get the labels off the bag to compost them!! No thanks. We do not want to discourage composting. Just get it right to start with and help everyone and the planet. Our compost bin looks a bit weird though with compostable bags in it during the breakdown process.
There may be some plastics from time to time especially bubble wrap. These are usually from parcels received here and instead of dumping it we make sure it has another use instead of single use.
Boxes are also re-used frequently you may find lots of tape and other delivery labels on there. We can all help by re-using these items.
