I get asked this question on a regular basis, so obviously I haven’t got it clearly specified anywhere. Therefore that is what I’m doing today!
Answer: The headings are made with a photopolymer stamp set – Southport Alphabet by Paper Person – using an acrylic block and Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black stamp pad.
I love these stamps a lot as they are bold but very condensed, meaning that my headings don’t take up too much room. You will notice that in recent times I have started to include the month in my date headings – that’s because it’s really hard at times to work out the month when I look at my books down the track.
I don’t think there is anything else I need to say about it! But let me know if you have questions – more info in this post.
(How’s this for a super short blogpost… I can do it, can’t I?)
Same problem here, too. I’ve been using Stazon on Hobonichi and it just bleeds through the back. I’ve read your 2016 post about stamping and the comments. I will try the Tombow dual brush pens as an alternative. Thanks!
The rangers ink still bleeds through my pages a little – but tombow would definitely be the best solution
That stamp set doesn’t appear to be available either at Kelly’s shop or through an online search. Too bad. I really like the font.
HI Jo – yes its available at the moment – I just had an error with the URL https://kellypurkeyshop.com/collections/stamp-sets/products/southport
The stamps look great on your pager! I think the big question is do you take them with you sketching outdoors? Can’t tell the size of the whole stamp kit. Looks like you found the ink that doesn’t bleed through
its very light wieght – I take it when I travel, but only stamp the date headings and this I do at the beginning of the day – so never take it out with me.
Rangers still bleeds a little but I’m very relaxed about things like that so it ok
