Custom rubber stamps

I was carving a new rubber stamp for the blog’s masthead and the girls were crowding around me and requested for new stamps of their own. Previously I used two little girl stamps using designs out of book, but both the girls have since outgrown that toddler/little girl phase so an update was needed!

R requested for one with long long hair, and C wanted one with 2 pony tails (despite the fact she hardly sits down long enough for me to tie 2 ponytails but that’s the image she wanted. I drew the pics out on paper, got the “clients” approval, then traced the images onto tracing paper and transferred them onto an eraser.

All done in about an hour :)

The girls love their new stamps and immediately sat down to write cards to their friends. R even made her own stationery out of it but she’s given it away before I snapped a photo of it.

Oh, I know I mentioned in my replies earlier on, that you can get the large eraser stamps from NBC bookstore? Well, I did see it a while back, but on recent visits to the branch at Raffles City basement, Takashimaya (4th floor) as well as Isetan Scotts (their stationery section is also under NBC). I could not find them anymore. They only sold ready made stamps. So I’m sorry to those who tried looking for them at these places. The only other place I can think of is Daiso but their eraser block is much smaller and stock and selection across the different branches is quite erratic.

The brand I used is Hinodewashi, and they do have an online shop but they ship to Japan only. If you have a vPost Japan account (applicable for Singapore), or any other method of shipping from online shops in Japan, you can try the online shop.

This is one of the eraser kits I have. It comes with everything you need to get started. Click on the image to go to the product on the online shop.

This are the large block erasers. click to access the product on the shop.

The online shop also sells tools for carving. The site is in Japanese but just us a browser like Chrome that can automatically translate the site for you, it’s not hard to understand!

You can also find the products you need for rubber stamps on Amazon (aff links)

    Hello nice blog here! Just wondering whether you managed to find the large sheets of erasers for rubber stamping in Singapore? I’m thinking whether to purchase the NASCO safety kut from their website.

      YES! In fact I just found them yesterday at Kinokuniya Liang Court. There were about 5 pcs of postcard size, 3 or 4 pcs of the smaller (but still larger than normal eraser) size, and also a few boxes of eraser sets (including erasers of different sizes for stamp making. They are also having a member’s sale right now 10% off stationery department. Go grab before it’s gone!

        Hi Joce, I’m not selling the blocks. I think one of my readers who left a comment here is selling.

    Hi

    I read about your carving of rubber stamps.

    I need a 110×110 mm rubber stamps and the content of the stamp is in Lanza Sanskrit language.

    Wonder if you can make one for me and I will pay you.

    Regards
