After a few years of manually signing my art prints, I decided to try out a stamp. The idea came to mind after recently selling my art prints wholesale, as I wanted an efficient way to sign many different prints.
In this short post, I go over why I decided to stamp instead of sign my art prints and where I ordered my custom logo stamp.
Stamping Art Prints
For my stamp, I chose to have my logo and website as my “signature”, not my actual name. This is my choice as I don’t want my full name all over my art. I do like to be semi-incognito and “Green Artist” is my brand anyways!
I also wanted a way for customers (and future customers) to see my website so they could find my shop if they wanted to see more.
The stamp is just under 1″x2″ so all prints will be stamped on the back. This obviously looks better and some prints are too dark to sign on the front.
Can A Stamp Be Used As A Signature?
Yes, why not? I have seen several other artists who have used a stamp as their signature. Some use a stamp of just their physical signature and others use their logo like I did.
It’s all personal preference, and that’s the beauty of being an artist. You can do what works for you. You could do a stamp of just your signature, website, logo, or all of the above!
Stamps Save Time
Since I am a one-woman business, I LOVE to save time when I can. Using a stamp saves me from having to physically sign a bunch of prints.
Where I Ordered My Custom Logo Stamp
I ordered my logo stamp from Simply Stamps. After doing a bunch of research for online stores to order custom stamps, I went with them. I am happy!
If you want to get a stamp from Simply Stamps, use the promo code GREENART25 at checkout for 25% off!
I ordered a custom small pre-inked logo stamp. Pre-inked stamps last for thousands of impressions so I shouldn’t need to re-ink it for a long time. This works great for me.
How do you sign your art prints? Let me know in the comment section below!
Just as a tip: If you prefer to sign your prints with a pen, I recommend using a micron pen as they are archival and come in a variety of point sizes. I used those pens for years before I switched solely to a stamp.
