Step 1: Engraving
Select the rubber that's appropriate for your stamp.
In this project we're using our Aero, which is a speed rubber that engraves 21% faster than regular rubber. It is also odorless when engraving and cutting a laser.
Laser: Trotec Speedy 300 80w
Engrave: 100 power, 20 speed
To see how we created the artwork in CorelDraw please see the video here:
Step 2: Cutting
Our Speedy 300 starts to cut as soon the engraving is done. We use our aluminum grid table for engraving and cutting the rubber.
Cut: 100 power, 1.2 speed
Step 3: Cleaning
Next you’re going to want to clean the residue out of the text plate. The way we’ll be doing this is by scrubbing it in some water with a standard brush.
We then dry it off with some paper towel.
Step 4: Installing
We're using our Trodat Printy stamp.
Make sure the word "Trodat" is facing you.
Trodat Printys have a locking mechanism, so you lock the open stamp in place, it's then easy to peal the cover on the adhesive and place the stamp over top.
Again, make sure that the "Trodat" is facing you when mounting the rubber.
Make sure you press hard on the rubber when mounting it onto the stamp.
Step 5: And You're Done!
Unlock the stamp mechanism. The rubber goes back into the stamp, presses against the ink, and you're ready to go!
