Sort of…But you won’t need a stamp pad. The stamp is pre-inked and will stamp about 100 times before you need to re-ink it. The impression that it leaves is much more detailed than a traditional rubber stamp – closer to that of a laser printer.
To re-ink the stamp, place a drop or two of ink on the face of the stamp, spread the ink evenly across the printing area of the stamp, and then let it soak in for a few minutes. Softly wipe away the excess ink with a cloth, and your stamp is re-inked and ready to use.
Regular rubber stamps leave a black/white impression, while Stampics leaves a photo-like black, white, and the gray scale impression. Also, the ink is per-saturated into the stamp itself, making it a self-inking stamp. They don’t require a stamp pad like regular rubber stamps.
Changing ink colors on your stamp is not recommended. The stamp soaks up the ink like a sponge so different colored inks would blend. If you would like to stamp in different colors, you should purchase a separate stamp for each ink color.
