Hand carbed rubber stamp in Keep Calm and Carry On design by Skull and Cross Buns.
The motto is just as relevant today as it was in the 1940's. This hand carved stamp of the old fashioned war effort motivational poster will look great stamped up on cards, stationery and much more besides.
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.
High quality carving rubber mounted on wooden blocks made within from the UK. All stamps in the Skull and Cross Buns range are painstakingly designed and delicately hand carved by me in my little South Devon studio by the sea.
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. 3.5cm x 5.3cm (1 3/8" x 2 1/8").
Wooden block can vary very slightly than the one shown, it will always be perfectly suitable for the stamp though.
