Home » PSA Stamp/Embosser FAQ


What are the most popular uses?
Return Address - From bills to invitations, quickly, easily, beautifully let others know where to find you.

Book Plates - Whether you are lending your favorite Sue Grafton or Betty Crocker, make sure the borrower knows who the lender be.

Canning Labels & Cookie Exchanges - Many admire your canned peaches, stewed tomatoes and ginger snaps, make your mark and take credit where credit is due.

Personal Stationery - No matter your pocket book, from pauper to prince, placing your moniker atop a piece of fine stationery displays grace and good taste.

Wedding Accoutrements - A do-it-yourself wedding planner's dream: a way to save time and money! With the flick of a stamp or a press of the embosser, you can emblazon all sorts of wedding items with you and your betrothed's good name: favor tags, note cards, save the dates, napkins and so much more.

Can the fonts be changed on the stamps & embossers?
No, but that's the only thing that stays the same -- you can say whatever you want!

Do you offer additional ink colors?
Yes! Each stamp comes standard with a blank ink cartridge, and you may purchase either a single color or our new Award-Winning 2-Color combinations. They are easy to replace, child safe and each cartridge lasts for about 6 months. Click to see all the ink cartridge colors .

How do I change the ink cartridges?
Please click for detailed instructions on how to change the ink cartridges .

What is the turnaround time for stamps & embossers?
These items ship within 10 business days via UPS Ground from Michigan. Please allow transit time from MI to your location. UPS Ground shipping is included in the price.

Are there character limits?
Yes. Stamps have a limit of 55 (on the outside - including spaces, 12 on inside where applicable); we advise you to stay within this limit (or the text will be very small and squished) -- about 50 on the outside looks best. Embossers are limited to 50 on the outside and 12 on the inside. Note: Stampers & Embossers will be made as submitted, we are not responsible for products over the limit. Fewer characters = larger and easier to read text! Hints: Omit individual names and use only the last name, omit all names and use address only, and use abbreviations for state & street names.

What are the limitations for embosser impressions?
You can easily emboss papers up to 28lb. When you venture into cardstock, we have found that 57lb is the heaviest you will be able to use - with these caveats: the more intricate the design, the more difficulty you will have no matter what the design, you'll have to put a little muscle into it. Notes: we are not responsible for embossers used on anything but paper. These are designed for personal use.

Do you sell replacement plates for the embossers?
Yes! We offer replacement dies for our embosser bodies. You can buy extra dies for sharing, alternate egos, monograms, addressing and such.
