Instructions for applying coffee cup stamps

Applying coffee cup stamps on a curved surface is easy, but takes a bit of practice to get the motion right. The key is to have the surface of the stamp touching the cup only a portion at a time.

To do this:
1. Ink your coffee cup stamps with your chosen ink (archival ink is a good choice).
2. Place the left edge of your stamp against the surface of the cup that you want to stamp. The right edge of the stamp will be away from the cup at an angle.
3. Carefully rock the stamp from left to right over the surface of the cup as smoothly as possible so that the stamp is applied evenly to the cup.
4. Set the cup out to let the ink dry. Your applied coffee cup stamp may be prone to smudging at this point, so exercise caution!
5. Repeat the process for every cup you want to stamp.
It’s as simple as that. By applying your rubber stamp in this method, the stamp is applied to the curved surface of the cup. All it takes is a roll of the wrist. In no time, you’ll have your brand on every coffee cup that your business uses.

Things to remember

Here are a few tips when using your rubber stamp on a coffee cup:

  • Don’t over ink the stamp.
