The sad moral of this story is the fact that when an end user has contaminated their mechanical, self inking, flip up and down stamper with these wrong inks they have in essence destroyed the solution. Technically the printing die plate might be replaced. The ink pad up inside the solution could possibly be replaced also. However the cost of a remanufactured printing plate, a brand new ink pad, the price to ship the solution back towards the manufacturer along with the cost to re send it again for the customer exceeds the price of a brand new stamper. So dear ink stamper user, should you have Stamp Ink , just make sure you usually do not place the incorrect ink in your stamp. If it is an ideal, Trodat Printy or Shiny stamper, Perfect Ink performs just fine. For those who have Xstamper, use Xstamper ink. When you've got Schwaab, use Schwaab ink only. When you've got Ultimark, use Ultimark Ink only. Self Inking Rubber Stamps will last for years if taken care of and also the user puts the appropriate ink in them when needed. Failure suggests you'll have troubles and it can cost you dearly in getting to replace your Trodat or Excellent Washi Tape each and every time.
