Default Stamping with Sharpies?

I know this is probably a question that everyone knows the answer to except me. Can you stamp with sharpies? I mean the way that you can use the stampin' write markers to color your stamp and then stamp with it. Wouldn't it be kinda like staz on? I'm thinking it would be but don't want to try it and then ruin my stamps so I thought I'd ask first. I only have like 3 staz on pads but I have a ton of sharpies.

I believe Sharpies will stain your stamps permanently. I've haven't used them, but have heard NOT to stamp with them. People have stamped with Stazon on window sheets and then used the Sharpie's to color in, but did not use them on the stamps themselves. I'm not too sure what the difference is between Stazon and Sharpie's but maybe someone else can help on that part. HTH Kendra

I haven't tried it, but I'm guessing that since they're permanent, you'd just have colored stamps. They dry instantly, and you know you can't just get them wet to rub off of stuff. Give it a try with some rubber trimmings before you put them on an actual stamp.

Well, I've never tried it and sharpies are Permanent ink however they say that they are Quick Drying. I've never seen them stay damp on paper anyway. I'd think that you'd have trouble getting them to transfer ink from a stamp to the paper because the ink would dry out to fast, and you can't just re-wet it because it is permanent. Again I've never tried it, maybe you'd find out different...

Sharpies dry too quick to stamp with. By the time you got the ink on your entire image, lined it up, and stamped, you wouldn't get a full image because the ink would be dry. That's the beauty of the Sharpie. Quick drying.

And, a little Sharpie FYI, 91% alcohol will remove Sharpie from any surface. Even removed it last night from a tumbled tile.

I've used Sharpies to stamp, and all of the above is true. You have to stamp your image quickly, because there isn't time to huff your stamp - it will already be dry. If you are using multiple colors on one stamp, you have to color quickly and stamp quickly. It does stain your rubber, but it fades with enough normal use, but it is never really gone. Just wipe the ink off as quickly as you can. When I tried it, I used stamps that were not my favorites, as it was an experiement and I had no idea what would happen. If you don't mind a little bit of color to your rubber - go for it. If you sell your stamps, you might think twice about it - a lot of people like their stamps in "like new" condition, and stained rubber isn't "like new". Good luck!! ~Pam

Default Tip on Sharpie removal

Thanks for the tip about removing Sharpies with 91% alcohol! I wish I had known that when I flubbed a tile when making Christmas gifts last year (I even tried sanding it, to no avail!)
I always have 91% available in a spray bottle for quick cleaning my bathroom faucets and sinks & mirrors- it's a great disinfectant and polishes chrome better than anything else on the market. Now I have another use for it - Sharpie removal !

Totally unrelated to what you are talking about, but I just had to share a neat idea we did at my kids school Wednesday. They are incubating butterflies and so we took white tshirts and sharpies and made adorable tshirts. We placed a butterfly cutout (six inches less than the width of the front of the shirt) and centered it in the middle. Then the children used every color of sharpie imaginable and made dots around the cut out. Then as soon as the dots were completed we sprayed rubbing alcohol on the dots (put the alcohol in a spray bottle to do this) It made the sharpies bleed and run in the most adorable tye-dye fashion. Some girls used colors of the rainbow, one color for every three inches of dots or whatever. They were all unique and all beautiful! Would be a cheap kids craft project and you could use any pattern, or even names. Dots should not touch each other for best results. Also, spraying the shirts along the dotted lines as soon as possible yielded the best results.

Use a sharpie on your stamp if you want the rubber to be a different color. I know someone who did this and all it did was color the rubber ,and nothing stamped off on the paper. I did not know what would take it off the rubber. I am just glad it was not my stamp!
