Rubber stamp in a stag design by Skull and Cross Buns.
The stag is a really popular image in contemporary Christmas stationery and decorations. I've designed this rubber stamp of a running stag as a simple silhouette with just a touch of whimsy with its curled antlers.
Perfect for hand stamping on Kraft paper in reds or golds to create as a simple but effective gorgeous gift wrap. Don't forget to stamp a matching gift tag too! It will easily double as a reindeer or moose.
These stamps are not suitable for young children and do not come supplied with ink pads.
Pigment ink pads are available to purchase separately at £2 each for a small pad (2.5cm x 2.5cm) or £5 - £6 for a large pad (7.6cm x 4.7cm). I recommend these pigment ink pads to get the best results with the rubber I use.
These ink pads are raised so you don't necessarily need the same size pad for your stamp, simply turn the stamp rubber side up and dab the ink pad all over from above for an even coverage of ink.
Ink pads are fade resistant and non-toxic. Please note the White colour is not as opaque as the other colour ink pads (there are very few white ink pads manufactured which are, unfortunately) but this is one of the more opaque ones available.
These stamps start out as one of my hand drawn designs which are then beautifully reproduced out of artisan quality grey rubber, pressed using traditional methods within the UK. I then trim them by hand and mount them onto tactile wooden blocks, also UK sourced. These grey rubber stamps are not hand carved like some of my Skull and Cross Buns stamp range but still print just as perfectly.
The stamp may vary very slightly from the picture shown; such is the nature of it being hand carved. The stamp may have some ink staining; all stamps are tested carefully whilst being carved and sometimes used to create the index image on the wooden block. This is unavoidable to ensure the image is nice and clear but any staining will not affect your stamping.
To clean after use simply dab the stamps onto a damp kitchen towel or alcohol free baby wipe, please do not rub the stamps.
The stamped image measures approx. 4cm x 4.8cm (1 1/2" x 1 7/8").
Wooden block can vary very slightly than the one shown, it will always be perfectly suitable for the stamp though.
