Stamp Pads
Some letterboxers look xfor ink pads that are acid-free and pigment-based, rather than dye-based. Pads with a raised inking surface can accomodate large stamps -- just move the stamp on the pad until its surface is completely inked. Office supply stores typically carry a minimal selection of pads and colors, while a large arts supply store can offer a variety of colors from which you can choose.
