Method of manufacturing seals and stamps

Technique of making seals and stamps at home

1. In any printing house or book-publishing house of your city on the zincography site, order a zinc cliche on all typographic upper and lower case letters of the Russian alphabet, numbers and punctuation marks (10 pieces of each name). Here is their list: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z about the p r t t u v g h h h h h e w e 0 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ! % "() <>; \ {} [] - + =: /? *,.

2. Each of these letters, numbers and typographical signs should be placed in small squares so that then the finished zinc cliche with them could easily be cut into small squares with the given signs.

3. In the same section of the zincography, ask that you cut the manufactured cliche on the squares with the signs (they have a guillotine for metal).

4. To make a stamp or stamp of these squares with signs, letters and numbers on the board, type the text you want, and use the "Moment" glue to fix it.

5. The resulting text, after the glue has dried, is pressed on the clay, and around the resulting impression, 3 mm and   poured   vixin-compound K-18 or hermetic, which can be purchased at a hardware store or on the market of a large city, and the sealant from the tube is not suitable, because it is very thick. To this end, it is squeezed first into a jar, where turpentine is poured, carefully mixing to the consistency of liquid sour cream, and then poured into clay.

6. After the sealant hardens, the finished text of the print is easily separated from the plasticine, pasted on a suitable board with the help of the "Moment" glue, the handle is attached, like the usual seals, - and ALL! The seal is ready! Thus from the zinc boxes with numbers, letters and signs you can make any stamp or stamp!

7. At the end of the work, zinc letters, numbers and signs with the help of solvent 646 for nitro-enamels are removed from the plate, dried and folded into a separate box for long-term storage and other stamp production.


1. On the sheet of thin foil, the desired inscription or picture is made.

2. With a non-writing pen or pencil, this drawing or the inscription on the 0.8- 1.5 mm .

3. The grooves are filled with epoxy glue or any strong putty and dried for 1-2 days at room temperature.

4. To the plate with a handle of a suitable size this picture or inscription is glued with the "Moment" glue or epoxy glue, dried - and the seal or stamp is ready for use!
