(Whoopsie! I just corrected my spelling. I originally wrote Sneek Peak!!!)
From the very start, I’ve always wanted a custom soap stamp. I think it adds that extra touch to the look of the soap, and is a great way for branding and personalising.
Not withstanding the lack of a logo, I had a generic stamp made. These were some of my earlier soaps (they looked so rough!):
I used my “handmade” stamp for only a few months. This year, I had two new stamps made with my logo. One is for my all-natural line (will post about that in the future), and featured below, is the general all-around stamp.
The first few batches I stamped didn’t produce very clean impressions.
Then I remembered Modern Soapmaking’s tutorial wherein Kenna stamped her soaps immediately after cutting, and used a rubber mallet to whack the stamp. I didn’t think the mallet would make a big difference, but it did the trick! I only had a metal mallet, though. Thankfully, nothing happened to the stamp, even with its flimsy makeshift wooden handle.
Would you like to have your own custom soap stamp? 😀
My first soap anniversary is coming up this April 3 and I feel like celebrating! I’ve got two activities lined up: 1) an interview with an inspiring and talented soaper, and 2) a custom soap stamp give-away (open to soapers from all over the world!)
