Someone has asked me how to prepare a couple of images for making rubber stamps.  I have watched a video of the rubber stamp making process on YouTube, and what I am wondering is how much detail I can get away with.  My first impression is that you can't do much better than give the stamp maker a silhouette, but

My first impression is that you can't do much better than give the stamp maker a silhouette, but I have found images that purport to be stamps that have retained some internal detail. like these

Could I get away with this does anyone know?  I did this with Find Edges and inverted, and adjusted the contrast.

The problem is I am working twice removed from the stamp maker here.  Someone I know was asked to make the stamp and gave the job to another person who gave it to me.    I guess I need to insist on direct contact with the stamp maker and ask how much detail they can reproduce.

If this video is still relevant, then its a heck of a process.

I haven't much experience of preparing artwork for rubber stamps, but I have for producing artwork for foil blocking on binding materials  (both fundamentally are crude letterpress (relief) printing processes. Your rubber stamp supplier should be able to give you advise, but I feel that you need to simplify this artwork as it would tend to fill in. Maybe some kind of keyline outline could work well.

That was exactly what I was thinking Derek.  I have been promised contact information with the stamp maker since starting this thread, so I'll see what they have to say.  It is always best to speak to the people who will be doing the job IMO.

Thanks for your input.
