Be sure to choose the stamp mount best for you. Wood mounts are a great economical choice and feature a laser-engraved index for a natural and crafty feel. Wood mounts require a separate ink pad for stamping. Self-inking mounts automatically re-ink themselves into a rotating, self-contained ink pad before each impression, making it ideal for quick, repetitive stamping. The ExcelMark self-inking brand features a unique, reversible (two-sided) ink pad that doubles the life of the pad. Simply push it out, flip it over, reinsert and keep stamping! Each side of your ExcelMark ink pad initially lasts for thousands of impressions and is simple to re-ink and replace. A clear base on the mount allows you to easily line up those impressions.
