As a homebased business or a homepreneurs, you need to have at least a rubber stamp with your name and address on it.
It could help you save money rather than always buying address labels, when you’re on a budget.
Other rubber stamps you may want to have on hand are ones that say, in large block letters, things like “SPECIAL!” or “ORDER NOW!,” etc.
If you shop on Fiverr or Amazon, you may see vendors selling rubber stamps.
How are they doing this?
There are three ways to sell rubber stamps.
The first, and easiest, is to act as a broker for a rubber stamp producer.
Contact a stamp maker either in your area or online, and outline your plans for selling rubber stamps by mail.
Explain that this will add business for him that he wouldn’t otherwise get.
The stamp maker should offer a commission to you (or free stamps) for taking orders.
Then, advertise your stamp-making business on Fiverr, Amazon, eBay, Etsy, etc. that mail order vendors regularly browse.
When you receive an order, take your commission off the top and forward the rest with the order to the stamp maker.
The second way is to produce the stamps yourself.
This is something you can set up in your basement or a spare room.
Spread the word around to the printers in your area that you are looking for used rubber stamp making equipment.
If you can, find someone who is currently in the business who is thinking of getting out.
Learn the process from them, and you can probably get good terms on the equipment.
Don’t share your ideas or they may decide to stay in the business.
The third way can be done if you have a computer and laser printer, or access to one.
