Boat Stamp/Seal recommendation?

I had the name of a small company that makes self inking boat stamps and embossers. I lost the information. There are plenty of companies making rubber stamps and notary embossers, but I'm looking for one that is accustomed to doing nautical designs.

Any recommendations?

Re: Boat Stamp/Seal recommendation?

We got ours at Staples and it is fine. They just take your design as a computer file and make a stamp from it. BTW, the only place we went that wanted a ship's stamp was Indonesia. People on the Sail Indonesia rally who did not have one just went up to the main street in Kupang, Timor and had one made while they waited ($4 including a stamp pad). One boat had an embosser - all of the officials (20 checked us in onshore after three others came out to the boat) were very excited by the embosser.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.

I don't know if it's the small company you knew of but Phil Johnson in Washington DC does yacht stamps. Email pnj@yacht-repair.com . Phil, in addition to stamps and an boat electrical repair business chairs the SSCA CCC that is leading the charge against anchoring restrictions in Florida. Tell him Dave on Auspicious sent you.

You're probably thinking of these guys;

YachtStamp.com

Got mine done there. Pricey, but great to deal with.

They are fun to have in Asia and Arab countries bit not necessary anywhere else.

Btw, if going to Asia take some kids holographic stickers with you: stamp the but of paper then stick on the sticker over a corner of the stamp, then sign. Great accolades you will receive! You must be a top Captain for that one!

Obviously you know you must stamp louder than the Official. I use the old 5 step run-up:

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh BANG

Re: Boat Stamp/Seal recommendation?

Yeah, I know I don't actually NEED one, but then who really NEEDS boat cards, either. I just think it would be cool. I might even go for both a stamp and an embosser.

I have a picture in my head right now of the official and the cruiser slamming the stamps down getting louder and louder as they compete with each other. Bang, Bang. Look up, BANG, BANG. Oh yeah (in his mind) BANG, BANG. Close up of narrowed squinting eyes. BANG, BANG.......

Impress them and they'll settle for a lower bribe.



Boat cards are good too. Put your photo on them... only way I can remember peoples names.

I can't remember your name

But your card rings a bell
