There are a few different ways that you can mount rubber stamps on wood. You can use a method that involves using double-sided tape or you can use a method that involves using hot glue. If you want to be able to reuse your rubber stamps, then the hot glue method is probably not the best option for you.
The double-sided tape method is much easier to remove the stamps from the wood if you decide that you want to change them out at a later date.
How To Mount or Unmount Rubber Stamps

How to Use Unmounted Rubber Stamps
Good morning, friends! Today I am going to talk about how to use unmounted rubber stamps. This is a great way to get started in stamping without a big investment, and it also gives you more versatility in terms of where you can use your stamps (on an acrylic block, directly on the paper, etc.).
There are a few things you’ll need before we get started: -Unmounted rubber stamps -Stamping ink (I like dye-based inks for unmounted stamps)
-An acrylic block or other hard surface for stamping Now let’s get started! 1. First, you’ll want to make sure your surface is clean and free of any oils or residue that might prevent the ink from adhering properly.
I like to use my finger to rub a bit of alcohol onto the block before starting. 2. Next, take your stamp and press it into the ink pad until it is evenly coated with color. You don’t want too much ink on the stamp, as this can cause smudging.
If you are using a large stamp image, be careful not to get any ink on the parts of the stamp that you don’t want printed on your paper – this can be tricky with detailed designs! You can also apply ink directly to your paper using a sponge dauber if desired. This can be helpful for getting into small spaces or creating interesting background effects.
Simply daub some ink onto your paper and then stamp over top as usual. 3. Now it’s time to transfer the stamped image onto your paper! To do this, simply place the inked side of the rubber stamp onto your chosen spot on the paper and press down firmly.
Then lift straight up – voila! You’ve made your first stamped impression! Repeat as desired until you have created the design you desire. And that’s all there is to it!
How Do You Stick Rubber Stamps to Wood?
When it comes to stamping on wood, you have a few options. You can use a rubber stamp with an adhesive backing, or you can use a traditional rubber stamp with a separate ink pad. If you want to get really creative, you can even create your own custom stamps using carving tools and carve them into the wood surface.
If you’re using an adhesive-backed rubber stamp, simply peel off the backing and press the stamp onto the wood surface. If necessary, you can trim away any excess rubber around the edges of the stamp. Be sure to apply even pressure so that the entire image is transferred onto the wood.
If you’re using a traditional rubber stamp, first apply ink to the raised portion of the stamp using an ink pad. Then position the stamp on the wood surface and press down firmly. Again, be sure to apply even pressure so that the entire image is transferred onto the wood.
You may need to re-ink your rubber stamp several times during this process depending on how big your project is. Once your stamped images are dry, you can seal them with a clear sealer if desired. This will help protect them from fading or smudging over time.
How Do I Attach a Rubber Stamp?
There are a few different ways that you can attach a rubber stamp to an object. The most common way is to use an adhesive, such as glue or double-sided tape. You can also use a stamping handle, which is a tool that helps you to apply even pressure when stamping.
If you’re using a clear stamps, it’s helpful to use a Stamparatus or MISTI tool, which will help you to line up your stamped image perfectly. To attach a rubber stamp with an adhesive, start by applying the adhesive to the back of the stamp. Then, position the stamp where you want it on your project and press it down firmly.
For best results, allow the adhesive to dry completely before moving on to the next step in your project. If you’re using a handle for your rubber stamp, start by attaching the desired ink pad to the bottom of the handle. Then, place your rubber stamp onto the ink pad and press down firmly.
To use the stamp, simply hold onto the wood block at the top of the handle and press down onto your project surface. When using clear stamps, it’s important to first adhere them permanently to an acrylic block (this will make lining them up much easier). To do this, peel off each individual stamp from its backing sheet and place it face-down on an acrylic block.
Then, run a brayer over top of the stamps until they’re firmly attached before flipping them over and proceeding with your project.

How Do You Mount an Unmounted Rubber Stamp?
If you have an unmounted rubber stamp, you can mount it yourself using some double-sided mounting foam. First, cut a piece of the foam to the same size as the stamp. Then, peel off one side of the adhesive backing on the foam and stick it to the back of the stamp.
Next, peel off the other side of the adhesive backing and stick it to an acrylic block (or whatever you plan to use to stamp with). That’s it! Your unmounted rubber stamp is now mounted and ready to use.
