Dock Marks

Printing Test I’ve been wondering how to label these card docks. I tried writing with pencil, but it’s hard to do without smearing the graphite. Then I remembered I had a “Stockwell Rubber Stamp Kit” that I once used to make regift receipts for Christmas. I dug it out and did a quick test on a piece of pine. Perhaps I should have let the ink dry first, as it is getting fuzzy where the clear polyurethane coat is interacting with it. Or, it’s the nature of the pine itself; perhaps it would blur as much with a hardwood.

I’m thinking of stamping the bottom of the index card docks with this stamp so people know where it comes from. It’s kind of mysterious looking too, if you don’t know what the heck a card dock is, or who in the world is “” making these silly things.
