If you want to give your craft away as a gift, then why not use a clothing marker stamp to leave your signature as a sweet reminder that you were thinking of them?
Send Your Kids to Camp With Fun T-Shirts
But clothing stamps aren’t just for crafts for your home or gifts for others. Your kids can use them, too!
If your kids plan on going to summer camp this year, why not let them decorate their own T-shirts with clothing marker stamps?
You can add other fun decorative elements to their T-shirt, too, like paint hand prints. And for a wild twist, try tie-dying the shirt first.
Use Clothing Marker Stamps to Brand Your Products
Do you sell your crafts on Etsy or your own personal shop? If so, you might be looking for a quick and permanent way to brand your products with your name or logo.
Clothing marker stamps are perfect for that kind of branding.
For instance, if you sell unique T-shirts, simply stamp your logo on the back of the shirt where the tag usually goes.
If you use multiple stamps, you can eliminate the need for uncomfortable tags entirely. Tagless labels lead to happy, comfortable customers!
What Kind of Clothing Marker Stamp Should I Use?
There are plenty of clothing stamps out there, but not all of them are good quality. At Creative Rubber Stamps, we sell Trodat’s Clothing Marker stamp—and for good reason.
Trodat is known for its top quality, making it one of the best brands of stamps you can find.
There are several reasons stamp users love Trodat. First of all, Trodat’s ink is totally non-toxic, making it safe for adults and even kids. Plus, the imprint can be washed up to 90 degrees Celsius. (Beyond that, you risk washing off the ink. The imprint should last at least 40 washes.)
But perhaps the best thing about Trodat’s Clothing Marker is that it’s easy to use. The imprint is clean and immediate—no need to stamp the fabric multiple times and no smudging.
You can buy multiple clothing marker stamps for your diverse needs. For instance, if you sell T-shirts, then consider getting one stamp for your business brand, one for each T-shirt size, and one for basic care instructions.
Those stamps will last you years with minimal care involved (just purchase refillable ink every so often).
