Using rubber stamps for the crafts have been utilized for many years now by various businesses and other organizations. The old rubber stamp type simply consists of rubber glued to wooden handles and inked through inkpads. Upon use, the stamp is pressed into the inkpad, which is then used to print on papers to create the desired logo.
