Pre inked stamp is made by gelling (cooking) a premix material with a felt at the backside.
Premix is made of micro encapsulated ink : when pressed, micro capsules open and release ink on the paper support. Felt at the backside constitutes an ink reservoir for capsule refilling.
Pre inked stamp is obtained by molding premix (ink gel) in a matrix (hollow) obtained by pressing a photopolymer plate (relief) into a framed matrix board
Pre inked production is the most technical of stamp making processes, requiring specific technic and precise cooking.
Resulting stamps set apart from others, offering exclusive and very high quality stamps.
With long experience and expertise, Thermoflan manufacture or distribute all necessary products for pre inked stamp : positive and negative films, developer, fixer, hard photopolymer plates, special pre inked stamp matrix board, framed matrix board, release spray
Thermoflan is also the sole European manufacturer of stamp making machines.
Pre inked stamp is not so common on the market, its production being more specific (requiring precise temperature and cooking time) .
Innovative by its composition (ink gel + felt reservoir), it is placed on a pressure adjustable special mount to release more or less ink on printed media. Resulting print is therefore more or less dark.
Pre ink stamp making has been greatly improved using our patented framed matrix boards (no cleaning or additional equipment required) and allows to offer a different and novel kind of stamp.
