All our stamps are printed on water-activated gummed paper. Our standard paper is a high-quality smooth non-glossy white paper. This matt paper is excellent for multi-coloured stamp designs, and very handling-friendly (tearing, glue quality, stiffness). It has a weight of 80g/m².
In addition, we offer a heavy matt gummed paper with a weight of 115g/m². For this we charge a surcharge of 10c per sheet. This paper is especially suitable for artistic projects and has a slightly rougher surface than our standard paper.
Until end of 2019, we also offered glossy white gummed paper. Unluckily it is no longer offered by our supplier, and we have not yet been able to find a new supplier for it.
Coloured matt gummed paper (blue and green), best for black and white images, is also available in limited numbers. It is no longer being manufactured, therefore our stocks are limited.
Of course, we can also print on non-gummed papers on request. Please contact us with your requirements. Only self-adhesive papers with glue protected by a carrier sheet cannot be used at all, because the glue would accumulate around the needles of our perforation equipment.
Yourstamps uses high-resolution laser printing technology. It is also possible to use offset printing on request. As offset printing requires one to four photo masks (depending on the number of colours used), there is a high fixed price involved which makes the technology only price-efficient if several thousands of stamp sheets are to be printed. Please ask us for an offer if you are interested in offset printed stamps.
