A stamp pad like this mid sized one is what you need to use a traditional stamp that is quite larger.

Open the lid of your stamp pad.  Dab your stamp around on the surface of the stamp pad to ink up and then onto your paper.  Close the lid when you are finished so there are no accidental inking incidents.

It is as easy as that to use a stamp pad.

This ink pad is 160 x 90mm internally.

We find that a stamp needs to be smaller than each dimension to get in here.  There is usually a bit of the body of the stamp sticking out further than the rubber stamp part.  Also to allow some maneuverability so you can dab the stamp a few times in different places to get enough ink on the rubber for a good print.

For our custom hand stamps we recommend no taller than 83mm or no wider than 153mm to use in this ink pad.  To get these inked well you need to get the stamp inside the little raised edge and in full contact across the surface of the stamp to get the best print from a stamp.

How to make the best mark on paper with a hand stamp and ink pad.

To get the best mark from your stamp we recommend slowing down.  Do not rush your mark.  Ink the stamp well by dabbing a few times in the ink pad before going to the paper.

Time and pressure is required to transfer the ink well from the rubber die of the stamp to the paper.  It is imperative to ensure all areas of the stamp have pressure applied to the paper area.  Using a flat plate type of stamp like our Custom Hand Stamp you will need to use a circular action of pressure to the handle of the stamp. Then apply pressure around the outside edge of the stamp to make sure every part of the stamp makes contact with the paper.

Do not allow the edge of the stamp to lift during that action as this can produce a second mark and blur the image mark on paper.

Also make sure the surface being stamped on is absolutely flat.  With a slightly soft surface.  Sometimes around 10 pages of paper can give enough flex to obtain a higher quality mark on your paper.
