I use my Letterpress or my Klingon as stamp positioners.
I may be the only one with the problem of over-inking my stamps, but the area around my stamp gets really messy with ink. My solution, I figured out yesterday, is to make a paper sleeve, with the stamp shape cut out, to tape around the stamp. Now I don't have to clean lid of my Klingon or my Letterpress. No muss, no fuss.
