Suitable for all materials

Noris 007 ink is suitable for Hand stamps or self-inking stamps. This stamp ink replaces the Noris 191 inks.  This is not alcohol based so does not dry as fast. Great for copy paper, gloss paper, plastic, metal, glass etc. Every type of plastic is different and testing before hand is recommended to ensure it will work for your situation.  This ink is not suitable for all plastics as on rear occasion it will wipe off or take far too long to dry.

There is a management aspect to this type of ink to consider.  There is an issue that the ink dries out in the pad as the ink dries out not every part of the ink leaves the pad. The binding agents, dyestuff and other ingredients remain in the pad. So if you re-ink the pad using the normal ink, you add those remains to the new ink. Over time this process changes the ink in the pad more and more. This will lead to a sticky problem.

To prevent it, Noris have created the refresher for the ink. As the pad dries out or is already dry, please use the refresher first. It will add to the pad those missing ingredients. Please use a few drops of refresher on the pads and then rub the refresher in the pad using a small stick. Afterwards you can stamp again. Please note that over time the imprint will get weaker, as the refresher doesn’t add any dyestuff or pigment to the pad. So when the imprint gets to weak, use the normal ink again for re-inking. Afterwards the cycle begins anew.

Also it pays to remove the ink pad from the stamp, replace the cap and store in an airtight container if not being used for more than two days at a time, another way is wrap it in plastic cling film excluding as much air as possible.  Given time we have found the rubber die can stick to the ink pad a bit in a self-inking stamp, sometimes ripping the rubber die off the stamp especially on the little ones.  The pad can also dry completely and no longer absorb ink, see above for the remedy.

We highly recommend using the refresher as well to keep the ink fluid.  This can also bring a pad back from dry and unusable to usable again if stamping infrequently.  If using infrequently and having no refresher on hand means having an insurance policy of having a spare dry pad for that occasion when you need to get some work done and a useless pad for the stamp.

Ink for Wood

The standard Trodat or Shiny brand of ink which is water based will work on wood.  However as it is water based if the wood gets wet it will liquefy again and move.  Using a  clear sealer over the top can lock the ink in.

Otherwise you can try the Noris 007 type of ink.
