HANDMADE SOAP, POTTERY AND CANDLE STAMPS
MAKE AN IMPRESSION
Your handmade organic/natural soap, pottery and candles can make a lasting impression by debossing your brand name on your product with an Owosso Graphic Arts Acrylic or Magnesium Stamp. Owosso Graphic Arts Stamps are also a great way to customize your product with a client’s corporate logo, for baby and wedding showers, birthday parties, etc.
DESIGNING YOUR ARTWORK
Because Owosso Graphic Arts stamps are either milled on a CNC machine (Acrylic) or chemically etched (Magnesium) you can get creative with the design, but you will want to keep your design simple. Small intricate areas will not etch or mill very deeply to give you a nice clean impression on your product.
You’ll want to keep these things in mind when designing your artwork:
- Artwork color – We need 100% K (black) artwork. And we prefer all vector art, especially for the Acrylic stamps, where vector art is a MUST.
- Line Thickness – The weight or thickness of “lines” in your artwork, for a number of reasons, needs to stay on the heavy side. When etching your stamp, thin lines will etch down a tad smaller that in your art and won’t give you a noticeable impression. And the same applies to Acrylic (CNC machined) stamps.
- Text Size – Again, to have your design stamp nice and clean; keep your text (font style) simple. You can have a more “Stylish” font style, but the same rule applies as line thickness. Some font styles have thin lines, so you will want to stay on the larger side. Plus, small text won’t etch deep enough to give you good impression when stamped on your product.
- Size – Yes size does matter, when you are working with a bar of soap, small round candles or small pottery pieces for example. You will, of course, want your design to stand out when stamped on your product. A simple bold design will stand out and give a clean look.
USING YOUR OWOSSO GRAPHIC ARTS STAMP
- Position the stamp gently on your bar of soap, candle or clay and lightly tap the stamp.
- Carefully lift your stamp up and off your product. You will see a beautiful clean impression on your product.
- That’s it, you’re done!
