Process to Re-Ink Stamps

Pre-Inked and Self-Inking Stamps

Effective 2003 all self-inking stamps use a new technology and must use Ideal stamp ink

If customer has old stamp with round red handle they must order new stamp, old inking fluid is no longer available.

If customer has old stamp with red round handle and still has old ink:

  • Unlock ink tray by sliding red tab on the side
  • Pull back handle in the back to remove the ink tray
  • Drop ink into the two holes in the tray

If customer has new style stamp, ordered after 2003, do the following:

  • Press top down slightly and pull out stamp pad until the ink chambers are reveled
  • Squeeze 10 drops of re-inking fluid into each of the two ink chambers
  • Wait 15 minutes, then add another 10 drops into each chamber
  • Press top down slightly and push stamp pad back into usable position
