Rubber Stamp Maker
A Shaw rubber stamp maker uses a rubber stamp with his name and "address" on my receipt.
Where do we still see hand-carved rubber stamp impressions? During the holidays, your basurero probably gives you an envelope with purple ink exclaiming "Merry Christmas, from Garbage Collector". Some small stores do not chose to have their receipts or sales invoices printed, instead opting for stamping each page of a pad. Snacks such as espasol and pastillas often use them as well on white paper to indicate the name and phone number of the maker. I will be thinking about this all day.
Often they also do key duplication.
