This ink stamp has a modular design to allow you to switch the stamp end. The stamp plate uses a dovetail joint to hold it in place. This way, you only need to print one stamp handle. this design also allows you to print with the business end of the stamp plate facing up.


Print out the Stl and assemble with one m4 flat head bolt shorter than 40mm. of course, you probably want to change the wording on the stamp itself, so go and edit the skp file and export your own stls.

Oh, and as qharley noted, you'll need to mirror image the text (unless your making a "redrum" stamp).

So how well does this work as a stamp?  Aren't these usually made of rubber?  How well does the material hold and transfer ink?  Any pics of it in practice, or stamps made with it?


I'm brand new to the 3d modeling/printing world. I imported this to Tinkercad to fiddle with it, and currently have it private there. Is it proper etiquette to make it public there with a link back here? I don't want to take credit for your work, but also want to make it easy for people to play with it.

yeah just a link is fine.

Have fun!

OK, thanks. Here is a link to the Tinkercad version, just for completeness sake.


I created a blank plate as a base for people to add their designs, and I'll push that back here.

This stamp would work great if you were Leonardo da Vinci.

Remember to mirror the text to get it stamping correctly.

oh details.

(thanks for the catch. i'll add a note.)
