Default Please help! Desperate for assistance.

Hi All,

I just bought a flash stamp machine. However, I have been unable to find self-inking stamp supplies. Just about all of the websites I have seen sell already customized stamps. Well, I'm looking for stamp mounts (istamp, trodat, excelmark, evostamp, costco) that are blank meaning that the included die/flash foam does not yet have an image on it because I will create my own. I have seen tons of online shops who sell stamps and clearly found a supplier of mounts with blank dies but I am lost here and I am usually very very resourceful. All suppliers I have found are not in the USA It couldn't be true that I have to buy from another country band many of those websites look sketchy. I also don't want to pay customs. Any suggestions. PLEASE LOL. I'M AT MY WITS END.

I had no idea as to what a flash stamp machine was. Google shows quite a bunch of different looking ones and there is even a book on how to make your own.
Did yours not come with a manual?

Hi Don,

I know how to use the machine. I just need more supplies as the starter kit comes with limited supplies.

Even though those companies don't make what you're after, have you picked their brains to see if they might know where you can purchase what you are after? The only other thing I can think of is somehow fabricate your own...

But manuals tell much more than how to work the machine. The company who makes the machine also wants you as a customer, so they tell you how to get more supplies.

Based on this video:

I know better of what you are seeking, but I have no idea how immersing the die in ink causes it to be self inking. Something of a mystery...which leads me back to my previous post.

Fiskar's made/makes a "Push and Print Stamp Factory". It works like all self inking stamps. There's a stamp, a spring and an ink pad. When the handle is up, the stamp is facing up inside the case. When the case is pushed down the pad lightly inks the stamp and the spring flips the inked stamp to the down position and leaves the image.

Don, I had no idea Fiskars made such an object.
