Haptic Stamp

Haptic Stamp
Easily customiseable stamp which does not use ink. Designed with [Yu Sakaguchi](http://yousakana.com) for the 9th Shachihata New Product Design competition.

The stamp creates a mark on paper by embossing it against a cushion material behind the attached cap.

  3. Press the stamp firmly on to the sheet and you can get your pattern embossed on the sheet!
