I am currently working on making a personalized stamp of my logo and I was wondering what material I should use. Any suggestions? I was thinking the new elastoplastic, but I am not really sure that will have the detail/not just absorb all the ink. Thoughts? This is the logo:


The lines will have to be thickened but it would be embossed on the surface of a flat stamp that would fit into a wsf holder i am designing.

I'm not altogether sure that ANY of the materials in Shapeways line-up will make a good ink-stamp. WSF would be the better of them all, I guess, but even that would entail a lot of messing around with ink loads and cleaning between stamps. I don't know enough about the elasto-plastic to help with that one, but I think it would be too soft and would deform on stamping.
