Step 1: First Things First, You Need a Stamp.
Have you ever wanted to make your own?
Well, it's pretty easy to order a stamp. I ordered mine from iPrint.com (Trodat printy 4911 with a font size of 8).
This particular stamp has a window in front so that you can see where your stamp will fall but for a single line of text in the middle of the stamper, it is a little tricky to place it exactly where you want it.
Step 2: Tape
The first step is to get two pieces of tape. Any tape will do but I used scotch tape.
One piece will need to be longer than the width of the stamper assembly. The other piece needs to be the width of the inner cavity of the stamper (the shaft that the stamper travels).
Step 3: Stick the Tape.
Step 4: Test Stamp
After you have a good stamp, peel the tape back off being careful not to smudge the fresh stamp.
The ink wont dry on the tape so watch your fingers.
Step 5: Cut Out the Frame.
My stamper has rubber feet on the bottom to prevent movement. I cut the edges off my piece of tape so that it would fit between the rubber feet.
Also, if you used clear tape like I did, you might want to use a Sharpie marker to color the tape to make it more visible. Color the tape on the side that will be on the inside of the stamper so that it doesn't wear off.
Step 6: Place the Tape.
Depress your stamp and hold in the two small side buttons. These will keep the stamp at the open end and allow you to see where your text is located on the stamp pad.
Line up the cutout in the tape with the text in your stamp, making sure it will be unobstructed. Secure the sticky ends of the tape to the edges of the stamper.
Place the stamp upright on a table and use the exacto knife to cut off the overhanging tape.
Step 7: Stamp!
I stamped the bottom edge of a dollar bill, lining up the empty area you want to stamp with the frame visible through the window on the stamper.
