The sad moral of this story is that when an finish user has contaminated their mechanical, self inking, flip up and down stamper with these wrong inks they've in essence destroyed the solution. Technically the printing die plate may very well be replaced. The ink pad up inside the item could be replaced also. But the expense of a remanufactured printing plate, a new ink pad, the cost to ship the product back to the manufacturer plus the price to re send it once again for the client exceeds the cost of a new stamper. So dear ink stamper user, in case you have a mechanical self inking plastic physique stamp, just be sure you usually do not place the incorrect ink inside your stamp. If it really is an ideal, Trodat Printy or Shiny stamper, Perfect Ink works just fine. When you've got Xstamper, use Xstamper ink. For those who have Schwaab, use Planner Stamps ink only. For those who have Ultimark, use Ultimark Ink only. Self Inking Rubber Stamps will last for many years if taken care of along with the user puts the appropriate ink in them when necessary. Failure means you will have difficulties and it can price you dearly in having to replace your Trodat or Perfect Washi Tape every time.
