Well, while that’s true and the majority of our clients buy them for that same purpose, let’s explore other excellent uses. Probably, it will help you in future. Discover eight different ways of using rubber stamps!

#1 – Motivating children in the class

In Uganda, most teachers, when they are marking pupils’ exercise books, they write words like “Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor, etc…”. That’s the traditional way of rewarding children in school for good or poor performance. In modern times, we need to become a little creative and come up with other better ways of doing it.

One of the right ways is by using unique stamps designed in different colours to provide encouraging comments to children, decorating children’s papers with exceptional images and grading papers in your classroom. It motivates the children so much.

We have a wide selection of distinctive school stamp designs from which you can choose to make your stamps. Using our unique designs, you can come up with your writings and graphics to design a unique rubber stamp that will act as a great motivator to your children in the classroom.

#2 – Making stamped business cards

Stamped Business Cards

In Uganda, we all spend a lot of money to print business cards. When they get finished, which always doesn’t take long, you buy more. You do it month after month and year after year. How much money do you spend in like five years? Have you ever thought of it?

Here is the solution to that. Just give it a try. Have a stamp designed to the size of a business card and in the colour of your choice. Use it to create your business cards. You will only spend on buying the stamp. The only recurrent cost is on purchasing the card paper, which isn’t expensive at all. But you will eliminate the costs of digital printing each time you need business cards.

#3 – Customizing Envelopes

Rubber Stamp Customized Envelopes

If you use envelopes in your business or organisation, you may want to have them customised with your name and contacts. That’s true to most companies. However, each time they need such envelopes, they make special orders, which turns out to be damn expensive.

If you want to reduce the costs, the solution is to have a stamp designed with your business name and contacts in the colour you want. Buy blank envelopes from anywhere and use your rubber stamp to rubber stamp customise them. It will reduce printing costs. Our Brother rubber stamps are so suitable for this use because they produce a crystal clear impression.

#4 – Signing on cards

If you’re sending out Christmas cards and other seasonal cards, and you want to sign on them or indicate the name of your business, stamping would save you a lot of time and energy. Just have a signature stamp made for you in the colour you want. Go stamping on every card. You will save time, and your work will look cute. Still, our Brother rubber stamps are ideal for producing high-quality signature stamps.

#5 – Putting a return address on outgoing mail

Although the internet came to stay, and most people communicate more by email, the use of post office services will never stop. With a custom stamp purposely made for outgoing mail, you will save on printing costs in your business or organisation. Just have a company logo stamp with your contacts and rubber stamp on your outgoing mail. It’s all that simple and cost-effective.

#6 – Sending tributes

You can send your sincere compliments to people with a stamp specifically designed for your company compliments slip.

#7 – Signing on circulars and reports in schools

In a school setting, there are several documents that head teachers and teachers have to sign on. Because of the burden involved in personally sign on them, most schools avoid it. Instead, they either give them out without a signature or produce them with a digitally printed one. That does not look personable.

To avoid such a situation, you can have a signature stamp with your name and use it to stamp on the reports or circulars. With such a rubber stamp, you can assign anybody to perform the stamping task without taking a lot of time and getting so tired.

#8 – Appraising staff

Many employers appraise staff to help them know their achievements and set new work-related and personal development goals. It’s good. When it comes to rating them, you can design unique stamps that you can use to express their achievements.


In Uganda, people use rubber in offices on official documents only. But if you explore more, there are several other rubber stamp uses like the ones mentioned above. Save your time and money by embracing these ideas.
