Re-typeset custom stamps

Rubber stamp projectsPosted by Chris Pittman Wed, December 17, 2014 12:59PM
I make a lot of custom stamps where no original stamp image to copy is available. The most commonly requested type of stamp is the standard Dienststempel round service stamp with the German eagle emblem. Unless otherwise requested I create the designs for these using the Tannenberg font, which is the most similar computer font that I have found to the various metal typefaces used in the Nazi era for rubber stamps. I use an eagle design that I painstakingly copied from an original printed Dienststempel on an official mail envelope. I can also vary the fonts and eagle designs as needed for variety. Here are just a few of the many custom stamp designs I have made in the standard way. These are for the Heer, Luftwaffe, Waffen-SS and Kriegsmarine but I can of course design reproduction rubber stamps using the correct text, designations and abbreviations for absolutely any kind of unit. I can offer these as rubber only, with a regular wood handle, or with one of my WWII German reproduction wood handles.
