The History of Rubber Stamps

The history of rubber stamps actually dates back to 1844, but the process of ‘stamping’ existed many years before this. Brass printing stamps were historically used to mark paper, while brass stamps were used with wax to ‘seal’ private documents with the crest of the owner.

The origin of the very first rubber stamp has been widely debated over the years, but it is said that Charles Goodyear was the first to discover the process of vulcanisation when he accidentally dropped some rubber and sulphur on the stove.
Vulcanised rubber was later used in early dentistry as part of a cost-effective denture bases.

From there, the original rubber stamp is said to have been created in 1866 by James Woodruff after he took the techniques used by dentists and applied them to letter moulds. At a later date, mechanical date and letter stamps gained worldwide popularity and became common place in post offices and business workplaces.

The origin of picture stamps (or rubber picture stamps) is educational - being used in schools and educational institutions before becoming popular in the art world.
Now rubber stamps are an important part of the modern world – either making our lives fun or more productive or both!
