A rubber stamp that has been created from scratch with a knife. While you can use store-bought commercially created stamp for your personal stamp or planted letterboxes, a hand carved stamp is generally more highly regarded by letterboxers. It's not hard to create a simple stamp by hand, even if you're not artistic!
