From the Vault — Old School Ink Pads

I recently inherited three containers of stamps and accessories from a friend. Check out these old-school ink pads:

What a treasure-trove of images! (Thank you to Jennifer for all the goodies!)

Do you have any old ink pads or “vintage” stamps? Do they still work?

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi Roberta! Just popping by. Got a kick out this. I can’t believe they work.

  2. I know! Isn’t that a hoot? Wow, how far we’ve come in stamping supplies, especially inks! Thanks for popping in!

  3. No way! Those are old school Hero Arts. I love the little monkey design in the upper left corner of the ink pad face in the first picture. That is from the early 1980s. Wow. A long-time ago. 🙂

    • Yes, and they still stamp! Somewhere, Aaron, I have a photo of you holding up a drawing of the crab stamp you designed as a child….
