Great stamped envelope and add-and-pass-on-printed-matter from Ruud!

I always wonder how Ruud succeeds in printing his stamps so well: you can see that all stamps are colouring completely!. While mine almost always leave some white (and when I try to solve it by using more  ink, there appear extra spots :-) ) !

Thank you very much, hartelijk dank, Ruud!

stamping requires some special techniques. I use the standard special inks with oil (prevents rubber from drying). Always lay a thin layer behind the paper (to make the presure everywhere equal). 

Also I print the stamp a few times on the stamppad (first to add ink, then to make it everywhere equal spread.

Last thing. While print, move the rubberstamp like a roller on the paper on a delicate way. That makes the print perfect. You should see a demonstration sometimes. Maybe I should videotape it for you.
