TAM Rubberstamp Archive

The TAM Rubberstamp Archive started in 1983 by sending out the first sheets into the network Ruud knew then, and is now over 35 years old. Still more contributions come in and only rarely the normal public can get a glimpse of what the archive contains. Several documentations about this archive are previously made, and online a large catalogue is available. (You can find an overview of all important details mentioned in previous publications (see also www.iuoma.org).

Eraser Carved Rubberstamp - By Ruud Janssen

Discoverd an older rubber stamp I carved in the 90-ies. It is still in good condition. I print all the original rubberstamps that are in the TAM Rubberstamp Archive also to keep their cndition good. The oil in the ink makes the rubber live longer. If you don't do that, they will just fall to pieces (just like that!).
The Rubberstamp is of course only finished when you put your original fingerprints inside the open spot....

Eraser Carved Rubberstamp - By Lon Spiegelman - USA

This Eraser Carved Rubberstamp is one of my Favorites. It is made by the late Lon Spiegelman (USA). He had a set of imaginary people he tranferred into rubber. Besides a lot of prints he also carved this one for me and donated it to the TAM Rubberstamp Archive. It still works very well when I print it every few years to keep it in good condition.
