If I wanted to use a circular or rectangular seal printed on the back of my prints, how would I go about it and also print my text info with one pass? Is it possible? I use 'Word' to print the backs right now.

(If it is possible, my next question is where can I get a digital seal made?)


Thanks

Not sure exactly what you're looking for. How about a custom-made rubber stamp for the back? That, in my mind, is more Signature-Worthy than an inkjet stamp. Just a thought.

I use a custom made chop made for me by a friend in China - see photo.

Notice they say:  We also make custom seals from your own designs

Here's another place that makes similar chops:  http://www.thejapaneseconnection.com/hanko/hanko.htm

PS - years ago I made a "digital stamp" in a cad program that we still use today - if you can get someone to do a CAD design for you using your logo or something you can just include it in a new document and print it on the back of your sheet.

Yup, rubber stamps!  Mark is right there in the Grand Tradition.  You also need a nice pad on the dry side.

Here's another one of some note.  You needed double weight paper to stand up to abuse like this.

A silver print landscaper I know has a stamp with fill-in-the-blank spaces for edition number, image name, etc.



edit...and another one!  Old photos with this kind of stuff are worth a lot more than prints without.

Depending on the type of media, you may have to wait awhile for regular stamp ink to dry on photographic type papers.  I've had good luck with copyright stamps using Encore ink from Superior Rubber Stamp and Seal out of Wichita, KS.  You could simply use any stamp, but with a pad using their encore ink----which dries very quickly.

The archives seal is nice. That is what I'm looking for.

You can do it yourself in either Photoshop or illustrator:

There are several you tube videos about it - just search for it -
