"Pad Printing" with custom rubber stamps?

Posted on Mon, 31 Jul 2006 at 16:06

Would it be possible to "Pad Print" using a custom rubber stamp?

I would like to print on plastic, metal, or rubberized items.

This would be for a couple one-time very low personal printing runs that I would like to do (about 12 pcs each time) so it doesn't justify me buying a pad printing machine for this.

I'm just curious if I could use some sort of custom rubber stamp + specialized ink to do the job.

If so, wonder if I could use 2 stamps and do a 2 color print :)....

however, it would be interesting coming up with a way to keep the registration correct.
