(Lexington, MA) - December 30, 2011
I am not satisfied with this stamp. I ordered this stamp after using an Ideal brand stamp for many years. This one unfortunately doesn't compare. I find it difficult to get a good print and it is not self-inking in the way I expected it would be. It has a bottom cover that you have to take off to expose the stamp. To ink the stamp when it runs low you fill it from the top with liquid ink. The Ideal stamps, in contrast, turn up after you stamp so the stamp physically rests against the ink pad (and there is no need for a cover). It a good design that results in better prints. The one thing I like is the actual design of the print (when it actually comes out right).
