Comments on How to make your own lino block rubber stamps for all your wedding needs

  1. Cute idea! I might steal this. I want to make heart stamps with me and my beloved’s first initials using red, purple and baby pink ink.

  2. Love lino printing! If you want more even tones, you can always use a roller/brayer to roll ink over the block and a baren (such as http://www.dickblick.com/products/yasutomo-bamboo-baren/) to press the paper down on top of the block to get more even ink coverage. Also, if you’re not doing a transfer and just going right to carving, remember to make your design backwards from what you want them to print, I learned that one the hard way 🙂

  3. I just ordered stamps online, but that’s definitely a cool idea. I wanted a lot of detail in my design, there’s always the thank you cards 🙂

  4. I love seeing people doing their own printing! Also, potatoes work well as stamping blocks. The downside is you need to carve and then immediately stamp – no saving for later – but you can make do with a spud and a knife in a pinch. 🙂

  5. I love this idea – and I love the idea that it is actually something I think I could pull off! Thanks for sharing this with us – it’s a great idea!!! Definitely going to try it for myself!

  6. I came across this post just hours after deciding to use linocut to print invitations for the bridal shower that I’m helping to throw! This must be destiny. 😉 I am planning on using a single block for the whole front of the invitation, and inking different parts in different colors, to keep the entire image consistently spaced.

  7. I will be pretty sure I’ve look at this exact same sort of affirmation in other places, it must be gaining popularity while using public.
