A rubber-stamp alphabet is an essential part of any stamp artist’s box of tricks. Although easy to acquire (at least one will be found in every stationery or art store), contemporary sets are a little disappointing in their cut and limited choice of size and font. So why not make your own?
In simple step-by-step instructions and illustrations, artist and illustrator Stephen Fowler explains how you can create rubber DIY alphabet stamps, perfect for personalizing gifts this Christmas.
This course is the next instalment in our Stamp Making series. To understand the techniques needed to make the DIY alphabet rubber stamps, enrol in our *free* step-by-step How to Carve a Rubber Stamp course.
The DIY alphabet stamps course show the approach used by the rubber-stamp calligrapher David Mekelburg.
