With a date stamp you can stamp a date on a document. We can supply various types with dates and text or with dates only. When you have bought a date stamp you can use it for 12 years. This is because in a date stamp there are rubber bands that contains date, month and year for a maximum of 12 years. It is not possible to replace the rubber bands so after 12 years the date stamp is obsolete.
You have several options when you want to buy a date stamp. You can buy it as a plain date stamp with a separate ink pad. Surprisingly there is still a market for this type. You are also able to buy a plain date stamp that includes extra text of your choice. You simply inform Solid Stamps the text you want on your date stamp and we then supply it to you with that text. Normally the text space available on the plain date stamp is limited to only two lines.
You can also buy a self inking date stamp where the stamp is produced either as a light weight self inking metal stamp or it can be made of plastic. When you buy a self inking Date Stamp you also have the option of getting a date stamp with a date only or with text and a date. A self inking date stamp has the same life time as a date stamp with a separate ink pad. On both the plain date stamp and the self inking date stamp you can, within the 12 years life time, replace the text plate if it becomes obsolete.
You get the best impression if the text plate on your date stamp is made of rubber. As with rubber stamps you can get a date stamp where the text plate is made of polymer. A date stamp text plate made of polymer does not give good impressions so Solid Stamps recommend that you only buy a date stamp where the text plate is made of rubber.
The text plate on your date stamp gets dirty simply from stamping your documents. There is a lot of dust on paper and when you use your date stamp the dust sticks to the ink on the rubber. To keep a top quality impression for your date stamp clean the text plate regularly. If you have a self inking date stamp place it in locked position. Take a piece of a vinyl tape and place it on the text plate. When you remove the vinyl tape all dusts sticks to the tape and your date stamp again provides a nice and clean impression.
It is important for any business to have good looking documents. If you use a Date Stamp with a dirty text plate it does not look good. So by using this simple cleaning method your Date Stamp impression will always look good.
