Rubber stamp has been around for generations and I can guarantee they will be around for many more generations to come. Unlike many other things that have become or are slowly becoming nonexistent due to ever evolving technology, I do not believe that rubber stamps will have the same fate. How on earth do you propose that you may ask, well, below I will share with you my (reasonable) reasons why.
To begin with, rubber stamps are used by massive amounts of people all around the world, for a massive amount of things. They can be used to mark a date, to label a document as being confidential, to mark an address, to leave a personalized signature and the likes. Whether you use them for business or personal use, or both, there is no doubt about it rubber stamps are still needed in this day and age, and currently, there is nothing available that will replace them. In fact, I doubt there ever will be anything that can replace a rubber stamp until paper becomes extinct that is. But again, I am not sure if we ever will become a completely paperless society, so I am going to stick with my theory.
A personalised rubber stamp.
For starters, rubber stamps are the easiest things in the world to use, and the easiest things in the world to maintain. Simple and straightforward, there are no two ways about it rubber stamps are already super easy to use, so theres no point in creating something thats easier to use. As the saying goes, if it isnt broke, dont fix it. And typically, when technology is used to replace something, it is generally because there is any easier way of doing something. In this case, I dont think any kind of technology could make a rubber stamp easier to use.
Along with this, because there are so many varieties of rubber stamps, especially because you can create personalized rubber stamps, it would be too much of a hassle to create something else to do this. For example, if you need to create a personalized stamp for your wedding invitations, for your business, Christmas card or even your monthly invoices, all you have to do is flick an email to a stamp company and it will arrive at your desk within a few days. Plus, once you have this, you have it forever. You may need to replace the ink pad every now and again, but the stamp will last year after year.
As you can see already, the main point I am trying to make here is that rubber stamps are already extremely easy and hassle free. With the risk of being too blunt, things typically only become extinct due to technology because we are looking for quicker, easier ways to go about our day to day activities. As we become busier in this fast paced world, we want easy solutions for our day to day activities. But in this one case, I believe that a rubber stamp is already a great and convenient solution. No longer do you have to sit there and hand writes the date or signs every single one of the 1000 newsletters you send out every month. Instead you can sit there with your rubber stamp and get through your list within a matter of minutes. I have said it once and I will say it again; rubber stamps will always be around.
