A short instructable where I show you how I made an personalized stamp for my brother.

Step 1: Materials & Tools

Materials

  • PLA
  • stamp rubber
  • double-faced adhesive tape

Tools

  • laser cutter
  • pc with inscape, rhino and cura
  • scissors
  • double-faced adhesive tape
  • paintbrush

Step 2: Designing the Logo and the Stamp

I designed the logo by using inkscape. For the body of the stamp I used rhino for the designing part und cura for the printing part.

Step 3: Printing the Stamp

Just send the data to the 3d-printer and start printing.

Step 4: Cutting, Cleaning and Gluing Volume 1

1. Cutting

  • just send your inkscape file to your laser cutter and start the engine
  • notice to start the extraction because the fume of the stamp rubber smells really bad and I definitely think it can't be really healthy

2. Cleaning

  • use the paintbrush to remove all the dust of the rubber

3. Gluing

  • I took the cleaned stamp rubber an put some double-faced adhesive tape on it's back and after the removal of the second protective sheet I glued it on the printed stamp

Step 5: Cutting, Cleaning and Gluing Volume 2

After I made some tests, I realized that the area around the single letters was so big that the ink often made some ugly outlines. To prevent this behaviour I had to do some rework as you see in the pictures.

I also put the double-faced adhesive tape on the backside of the rubber before I started laser cutting. By using this technique I didn't had to cut the difficult silhouette by hand.

Step 6: Bonus

It's always annoying when you can't find your stuff so I also made small stamp mount with an integrated place for the inkpad.

Step 7: Finished!

Here is the picture of the finished stamp. It was fun to built it, I learned a lot and my brother was really happy about his gift.
