This pre inked stamp is great for notebooks, diaries, sticky notes and presents. The stamp is pre-inked (with oil based ink) so that you do not need an ink pad to use. The ink of the stamp is waterproof so that you can paint over the stamp with non-permanent markers. The size is nice and compact to fit in a pencil case. Rotate the dial to switch between 10 patterns. You can create large textile-like patterns and borders on cards and wrapping paper. It does not bleed when colored with water-based markers, so it is recommended to decorate it colorfully.
