For small businesses these days, it can be quite expensive to buy official company stationery, envelopes, business cards, labels, etc. Fortunately, there is a way to get the functionality of all these things without sinking a lot of money into them: a rubber stamp.
A company rubber stamp has a variety of uses that will help a small business owner save money while achieving a professional look. Below are some ways you can use that rubber stamp to help you achieve a professional look without breaking the bank.
You can use them to sign documents. In certain places, like the UK, there is no law saying that official documents by businesses have to be hand signed, so most businesses choose to use a professional looking seal. A rubber stamp with your company logo can do the same. By having an official company seal stamp in a place where everyone in your company who might need access can get it, you are making a generalized and recognizable “signature” on all documents. However, you should be careful with that seal stamp, and make sure it is only used for recognized and official transactions.
They can lead to brand recognition. By using a company stamp on official documents, or in place of a letterhead or envelope, you are leading to brand and logo recognition by anyone who has dealings with you. This is especially important if you are dealing with companies overseas, where your logo is more likely to be remembered than your name. Stamping on stationery, envelopes, and business cards will get that logo out there without paying an inordinate amount to a printing company.
When using these rubber stamps there are a few things to keep in mind. Always pick a better quality stamp over a low quality one in order to make certain that the stamp will last you a long time. Inkpads may run out over time, but a good quality stamp will last you many years. If you want to avoid buying more and more inkpads or risk getting ink on your fingers or anywhere else, it may be a good idea to invest in self-inking stamps. these stamps can be customized, and can be carried on the go to put your company information in easily-accessible places, without having to search for pen and paper.
If using a logo stamp, you can add a certain bit of customization depending upon the ink you use. Use bright colors on the back so brochures or on flyers to draw the eye and attention of consumers, and use a single, solid-color for when stamping official documents and stationary.
While it often seem that many businesses are trying to find the best and newest technology, sometimes a tried and tested old method is preferable. In this case, the method is cheaper, easier to use, doesn’t waste time, and is available for customization. Rubber stamping was once seen as a tradition of hobbyist, but now a new generation of business owners are finding great uses for them as well.
