ISO Recommendations for non-stamper
I have a stamping project but I haven't stamped in more than 7 years so I'm out of touch with tools and techniques.
I need to apply people's names onto paper pocket folders (they are too wide to run thru my printer, and i don't want to buy a wide-carriage printer for this project).
I considered clear labels, because they'd look yucky.
I considered cuttings slits in the front of the pocket and run the names on paper , cut the paper into strips and slip the strips into the slits - but I don't want to add the thickness.
I considered printing onto transfer paper, but I think that will transfer residue to the paper (where the letters aren't, as well as where the letters are).
So I'm considering stamps - but how do I do this?
Do I draw a faint line on my item, and apply each letter individually, using clear stamps?
Is there an item that will hold the individual stamps onto a level line, apply ink to them en masse, and then stamp?
Or, what are your recommendations?
Thank you so much in advance for your tips
PS - I'm concerned that each individual letter stamp will be very small and hard to work with - I'd love to find something where I can dial up each letter, or something that will make this very easy... ie, the right tool for the job (I have a lot of names to do!)
