If you're just making one or two stamps, I'd recommend getting it done somewhere like http://www.rubberstamps.net/unmounted-custom-stamps.aspx (only $20 for the 4" - rubber only) or http://www.rubberstamps.net/Art-Stamps.aspx (~$40 for it mounted on the block) If you think you'll be making a bunch in the future, there are a bunch of great carving tutorials - instructable here http://www.instructables.com/id/Super-Easy-Custom-Rubber-Stamps/ - it's pretty rudimentary and homemade-looking (if that's what you're going for. There's or a more precise stamp/video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DqEI_BhRNs. If you won't be making a bunch in the future, probably just cheaper to have someone else make it.
Weeeelllll, you can get it laser etched.

What do you want to imprint? Fabric, wood, leather... There are a lot of materials to make a stamper from potatoes to rubber sheets or linoleum tiles, etc. You could even carve them out of wood blocks or cast something from a mold. Search on rubber stamps or stamps, stampers, stamp making, there should be lots of ibles and ideas.
