Question:

How many bars can I stamp at a time using your Soap Stamper?

Answer:

Starting out you should easily be able to stamp 5 or so per minute. Later you may be able to reach 8 or 10 per minute. Much depends upon how efficiently you arrange you area and work flow.

 

 

Question:

How long can I wait before stamping my soaps and how difficult do you think it will be?

Answer:

Your stamp will impress easily if timed correctly. If the soap is cured to long, it will not stamp well. If necessary you can keep it soft by covering it with saran wrap. Best time to stamp is within a couple days to a week.

 

 

Question:

Comments from our Customers:

Answer:

A Soap Stamper suggestion: I have stamped approximately 250 bars of soap (I think the time it took, collectively, was about an hour!) - and I still love the Soap Stamper!  On a few of my bars of soap I did notice some pulling out of the E in Sundries, the F in of, and the U in Paul. My solution

 

I took a damp sponge, put it on a plate, and simply swiped it over the surface of the stamper before each stamping (for those recipes where I was having some trouble). It took no time, and completely solved the problem - there was no sticking what so ever - the stamping was exceptionally clean (I tried swiping with oil - but that didn't work very well at all).  In fact, I think I'm going to make this a part of my stamping technique - the result was to clean. I'm actually going to go to the crafts store and see if I can't find a "blank" stamp pad that I can wet with water instead of ink, and use that with each stamping. I felt that this might even have worked with smaller fonts or stamps with intricate details. Anyway, just thought I'd pass this along in case you were looking for helpful suggestions for your customers. Thanks again!

 

 

Question:

I have heard that around 24 hours is best for stamping. Is this correct?

Answer:

You may be able to stamp at 24 hours, it might be 7 days or even right out of the mold. Cold Processed soap is very individualistic and much of the, "Stamping Window" depends on the formula, amount of water, mold insulation, herbs, clays or additives to the soap formula, ambient air and humidity.
 
As you can see there are no set rules. I always suggest, systematic testing of samples, starting from right out of the mold to a week. Approach it as though you were a chemist running a series of tests. The beauty of CP soap is the unique characteristics that you as the Soapmaker can impart to it. This does present challenges, because it is not as predictable as milled soap, forced through saponification, overcooked, mashed, crushed, dried, ground and then pressed into perfect bars.
 

Question:

How long will it take to pay for the Stamper and how much should I figure in cost per bar for stamping?

Answer:

Unfortunately there is no standard or benchmark from which to give you a cost per bar. All we can give you, is that one can easily stamp about, 5 bars per minute. If set up properly, with a good flow of production, having trays to pull out of and to put stamped bars into, you could possibly do, 10 per minute or more.
 
Since wages and hourly rates vary from state to state, city to city, the best way to figure costs, is to go by rate of production per hour and divide that into your hourly rate. I would take a conservative figure like 6 per minute to start, 360 per hour and divide that by what your intended hourly rate is. For example, labor at $25 per hour, would be about 7 cents per bar.
 
How soon the machine would pay for itself would depend on how many bars you will be stamping and whether you have the extra time to spend hand stamping. Is it is more profitable to spend that time selling or producing more soap? It is difficult sometimes, to calculate the labor savings in dollars for a tool. How well the person uses it is a factor. How the tool is used in conjunction with other tools and with the material being worked.
