  • How To Choose The Right Stamp For A Signature

“I need to make a stamp for my signature. Which one should I buy?”

my-signature

Choosing which custom stamp to use is for a signature stamp is one of the most popular and frequently asked questions we receive. It’s really not complicated and the answer for your choice is very simple once you ask yourself (or consider) the following two questions:

  1. Will I be using my signature to stamp multiple documents rapidly and repetitively?
    Example: You may have a stack of payroll checks that require your signature and you will be stamping your signature repetitively, one right after another in rapid repetition.
    When repetitive use of a signature stamp is needed, you are best served to use a stamp model that is self-inking (versus the alternative of pre-inked).
  2. Will my signature stamp also include artwork?
    Example: Along with your signature, you may choose to design and include artwork, like a logo, an icon, or other graphic
    When your signature stamp is going to include artwork graphics, like a logo for example, EZ Office Products recommends using a pre-inked model (versus the alternative of self-inking).
  3. The best, most common, most popular signature is stamp has a width of approximately three inches wide (3” Wide).
  4. For signature stamps, EZ Office Products recommends the following stamp models for signature stamps because these are the most popularly ordered custom stamps used for a signature:

GUIDELINES FOR PREPARING YOUR SIGNATURE

  1. To create a crisp, clean impression for your signature stamp:
    • Paper: Use a clean, blank, white sheet of paper
    • Pen: Always use a black fine or medium point
      1. Do not use a black “gel” pen because, while you may not notice, it bleeds into the fiber of your paper
      2. For the best and most crisp impression, it is in your best interest and preferable to use a black felt tip porous fine or medium point pen. There are several that work well. Examples of this type of pen in various brands would be:
        1. BIC Intensity Fine Point, Black, BIC FPIN11BK
        2. Paper Mate Medium Point Flair Pen, Black, PAP 8430152
        3. Paper Mate Medium Point Liquid Expresso Porous Pen, Black, PAP 21001BH
        4. Pentel Bold Signature Pen, Black, PEN S520A
        5. Pilot Fineliner Marker, Black, PIL 11002
        6. Pilot BraVo! Marker Pen, Black, PIL 11034
  • If you do not have a felt tip (porous tip) pen, a black medium point ballpoint pen will usually work – just be sure to press a little harder than you normally do when writing your signature
  • Signing: Now that you have your paper and the right pen, sign your name as you would naturally. EZ Office Products will be able to use your quality impression on any stamp size that will be needed. If you are not uploading your signed graphic to our stamp store, just sign on your blank white sheet of paper three times (top, middle, bottom), scan the paper as a PDF using a resolution of at least 300 dpi and email to us. We will send you a proof.
  • Emailing your file: You can email your signature to: CustomStamps@ezop.com
    1. Be sure to let us know the width you would like your signature stamp to be and we will choose your best stamp option
    2. Be sure to let us know the ink color you need for your signature (black, blue, green, red, purple)
