Introduction

Teachers are busy!1 They have a lot to juggle on a day-to-day basis, so marking and providing quality feedback can be made easier with the assistance of a personalised teacher stamp. These stamps can be made to reflect a grade, give feedback, and provide insight. Teacher stamps are a fun, personal and efficient way to provide feedback to students. Each teacher has their own style, and that is why a custom-made teacher stamp is a great idea. To save you time, I have compiled some information about teacher stamps, options to customize your stamps, and where to find them.

I know I’m not the only teacher who loves stationery….

What are personalised teacher stamps?

A personalised teacher stamp is a stamp that can be personalised or premade with images, text, or icons that get a specific message across, such as “Mrs Lee says Good Job!” or “Mrs Lee says Keep up the Good Work!” and so on. Teacher stamps are a fun and stylish way to give feedback on papers or homework. Teacher stamps are used to provide feedback, and motivation to students on their written work without having to handwrite a message on every paper, which can be exhausting for busy teachers. Avoid RSI and just stamp what you want to say. When they’re personalised, they’re more likely to catch the eyes of students as they review written feedback. Teacher stamps make marking faster too!

How Much Do Personalised Teacher Stamps Cost?

Personalised teacher stamps can vary in price based on their design, complexity, size, and of course the vendor. Typically they can range anywhere from $10-$40 (or more) per stamp. However, some designers charge more and offer bundle deals, which save more in the long run. There are endless designs available and personal customisations to play with. Teachers can make genuine and personalised teacher stamps that show their style, creativity and personality.

Personalized teacher stamps can come in many shapes, sizes, colours, and designs. Some stamps are self-inking. This means that your hands will be ink free because the ink stays moist and will not dry out. Ink pads can be messy, but self-inking stamps are mess free!
