Ink is prone to smudging if it isn't totally dry. Ink pad should be stored separately to keep it from drying out, which can be a hassle.
Features a self-contained ink pad that can be "re-inked," adding to this stamp's value. Includes 10 years of dates. Produces crisp numbers in bold red ink that are easy to read.
Plastic casing feels flimsy. Date adjustment wheels can be hard to turn, and you get ink on your fingers when you attempt to change them.

If you prefer modern office equipment, this date stamp's vintage design probably isn't for you. Changing ink bands can be messy.
If you send dated documents on a regular basis, a high-quality date stamp may just be the tool you need for home or office use. If you are looking for a durable model, seek out a date stamp that includes at least 10 years’ worth of dates — other stamps may only last for five or six years. The ink pad is another consideration to keep in mind, as some stamps offer a replaceable, built-in ink pad while others simply include an unattached pad. For a mess-free experience, try finding a stamp with built-in date bands as well as a metal frame to prevent numbers from smudging during use.
