The humble date stamp is surprisingly still very much relevant today, in spite of the advancement of administration technologies.
A date stamp is basically a marking device that contains a date component, which one uses to transfer a printed image of the date onto a document or package. Usually the marking device is a rubber stamp of some format.
It is believed that the origin of the date stamp dates somewhere between 1855-1860 1

Stamps Plus offers various products in the category of date stamps. Some are self-inking devices and others are traditional styled ones which require a separate ink pad.

An Ex-libris rubber stamp, sometimes referred to as a ‘this book belongs to’ rubber stamp is a must have for the bookworm or proud book owner.
If you frequently lend out books to friends and family, it is a delightful and tasteful way to use a purpose made rubber stamp instead of scribbling your name somewhere in the book plate. They make really lovely gifts too. If you prefer to personalise your ex-libris rubber stamp and want either the convenience of a self-inking rubber stamp or the nostalgia of a traditional styled wooden stamp, Stamps Plus can help you.
The definition of ‘ex-libris’ according to the Collins online dictionary is as follows; Adjective, “from the collection or library of: Frequently printed on bookplates”. Noun, “a bookplate bearing the owner’s name, coat of arms, etc.” And, according to Random House Unabridged Dictionary, the origin of the word was; “first recorded in 1875–80, ex libris is from the Latin word ex lībrīs out of the books (of), from the books (of).”
