Digital stamps can be coloured by hand or coloured in a photo editing suite on your computer before you print it out. You can even place it into a Word document and print it out.

It can also be resized, flipped (create a mirror image) or manipulated in other ways before printing it out and colored in the same way that a rubber stamped image is colored.

One limitation to digital stamps is that the images will be printed using normal printer ink and not a rubber stamping ink. Therefore you may need to be careful about the ink running if a wet coloring method is used.

The etsy site that I sell my stamps on ( etsy.com/shop/squigglefactory) is a great place to look for digital stamps. I recommend softpencil or tiddlyinks or pixie dust studio on etsy.... love their work!

Great advice- digital stamps are alot cheaper than rubber or clear!
