UV Ink

22 Oct 2021

Ultra-Violet (UV) ink is very effective to use for customers in the concert, nightclub, and wedding industries, as well as any other attendance-based events related to crowd control or security issues.

UV ink dries on the skin within a few seconds cannot easily be washed away by water or sweat under normal circumstances. After the event, it can be removed by washing the area with soap and water or it will self-evaporate from skin within 2-4 days. These stamps can show you important information such as guests under the drinking age or proof of admittance in place of tickets.

We put together our unique UV entry kit, which includes: A wooden stamp that we will customize to include your own picture or phrase; 50ml bottle of UV Ink, an un-inked stamp pad to be used for the ink, and also a portable handheld UV light. You can also buy any of these items separately, for example if you only need a bottle of ink or an extra handheld light.

Add an element of fun to your next event by using a UV kit.  If you have any questions about any of the products we offer, our team would be happy to assist you further, either by our online chat option, or via email https://rubberstampsa.co.za/contact/

Quick-Dry Ink

21 Jun 2021


Have you ever wondered if it is possible to stamp on a glossy surface, or if stamps are only meant to be used on paper? As long as the surface you stamp on is flat and even, you can stamp on most surfaces. It all depends on the type of ink you use.

When you want to stamp on metal surfaces, hard plastics, cardboard boxes, coffee cups or brown paper bags, you must use an old-fashioned wooden hand stamp, with a separate ink pad (which you’ll receive un-inked) and a bottle of quick-dry ink. Be careful not to ink the complete ink pad at once. Only put a bit of ink in the ink pad, as much as you need to use at that time and then the next time you need to use the ink again, you can re-ink the pad again.

The quick-dry ink we use comes in a 50ml bottle, is alcohol-based and it dries quicker than normal water-based ink. However, it does not dry instantly. Once you have stamped, you have to give it 3-5 minutes time to dry before you touch it, to make sure it won’t smudge.

We have the quick-dry ink in standard black, blue, red, green, and purple. You can get between 500-1000 stamp impressions from one bottle of ink. It depends on how big your stamp is and how much you have to ink the ink pad to cover the entire surface of your stamp.

Level 4 Covid-19 Plan – Interactive Concepts

30 Apr 2020

Prepared by Gary Amstutz (CEO) on 30 April 2020

Background

Interactive Concepts is a manufacturer of stationery products (Rubber Stamps, Name Badges, Business Cards and Stickers/Labels) and sells directly to our clients through our eCommerce websites.

We do NOT service any customers at our premises.

As such, we are legally classified in terms of the new regulations released on 30 April 2020, to expand our trading from only offering our products to essential services companies, to offering our products to all clients within the borders of South Africa.

We currently have all our sales team working from home and will continue to operate like this during level 4.

Our production facility is a small facility of less than 150sqm and is based on the property where two of our staff members reside permanently. They will therefore be working from home as well and will continue the limited manufacturing that we are expecting during level 4.

We have three other members of our production team, who all rely on public transport to get to work. Despite them being able to legally come to work under level 4, we don’t yet feel that it is safe for them, or the current production team, to do so. We will review this regularly and when the situation changes, develop an operational plan for them to come back to work, that is aligned with the new regulations.

In summary, ALL of our team who will be working from Monday 4th May 2020, will be working from home.

Operations

As all our team will be working from home, we do not need to substantially change our operational processes. All deliveries and collections by our couriers will continue to be contactless and we will observe strict social distancing rules.

Notwithstanding the fact that our entire team will be working from home, they will be reminded regularly of the need to practice safe social distancing, to limit their movements outside of their homes, to wash their hands regularly and not to touch their faces.
