The new (and did I mention free) soap stamp


 Share

Recommended Posts

I got the stamp for free at owossographic.com. They guarantee that you will love your first stamp so much they give it to you free! I only paid $2.85 shipping. Its a magnesium die, debossed, mounted on a wood. Quite lovely!

Please excuse the photography, not my best:

Very pretty. I love that green swirl! The stamp is cool too :)

I didn't bevel much on the first few batches, but discovered in using them months later that the edge can be sharp and uncomfortable :undecided

I thought about ordering one of those stamps a couple years ago but had NO idea what kind works best...lol

Ok yours turned out great. I have 2 stamps from them and have rendered 2 batches unsellable cause the stamp messed it up when I was lifting it back off the soap. I just couldn't get the timing right:angry2:Beautiful soaps, and I like NON.

Magnesium, debossed on wood. I believe I picked 3/4".

Nope, choices are 11 point, 1/4" and 3/8" ;)

I think it's how thick the actual impression will be, but not sure. I figured I just wont press as hard and chose the 3/8". Then remembered I don't have the file ready to upload... maybe tomorrow I'll have time to make it...lol

I just want to say that those are some lovely soaps! I love the pop colours I cant wait to finally use some of mine!!! Maybe this afternoon....

I just wanted to also say that when I emailed the company they said this: "We recommend using a ¼” magnesium stamp mounted on a wood block"

Now that being said I havent ordered my stamp yet or used it .. thats just what they said

I've had the same problem with mine. I have some swirlies in my logo and its hard to get it just right! I love it but its frustrating!

Beautiful soaps Z!! Your stamp looks great!! Love it.. I'm the same, on the fence about beveling, I like the look of both and beveling IS so time consuming..Lately I've been leaning more towards non beveled. ;)

Maybe this will help.
