What type of stamps do you sell?

Purple Onion Designs has been selling unmounted deeply etched red rubber since 2003.  The stamps do not require cushion because of the deep etching and high quality of the rubber.  They will need some type of adhesive/product to stick to your acrylic block.  There are many quick and easy ways to use unmounted stamps.  Please visit the Using Unmounted Stamps page for more information.

Do you only offer red rubber stamps?

Yes.  Purple Onion Designs continues to offer stamps in traditional red rubber to capture the fine detail that many of the designs contain.  Red rubber inks up well and will work with all types of inks on the market.  Clear stamps do not allow the same type of fine detail as red rubber.  They also can be difficult to use with certain inks.  These two qualities of red rubber will give you the best stamped impression possible.  The images are not available digitally.  Purple Onion Designs believes in preserving the art form of rubber stamping.
