Does anyone know of an online source for ordering custom self-inking stamps with custom ink colors (Pantone match)?

If you come up empty, I have a client who sells rubber stamps; I'll ask tomorrow. What color?

Response by poster: Between Pantone 581 and 582C, or CMYK 2, 0, 100, 72.

I've worked with Simon's Stamps in person before and am willing to bet they'd tackle it if you gave them a call. They seemed to relish a challenge.

Oddly, that jpg errors out in FireFox. But it's probably not real helpful anyway, for the purpose at hand. :-)

At least you specified "C". :-)

I called my stamp house today, but their ink supplier is off on Fridays; I should have a quote on Monday.

She gathered you have to buy a gallon of ink for customcolor mixed; how much stuff do you have to stamp? Could you use labels instead?

Response by poster: It's to add some text on a business card without having to do a press run. A gallon of ink would likely be overkill...labels wouldn't work. I'm open to suggestions.

I suspect you're so screwed.


Cut business cards are way too small to run reliably through any printing technology I'm familiar with.

You can't use black, huh?

It will likely be more cost effective to trash the cards and reprint.

I'm probably right. They checked with their ink people, minimum 1 quart; roughly $65, plus the cost of the stamp.

Get the cards reprinted. :-}

Response by poster: $65 is fine. Who is able to do this?
