Thereafter you will get nice looking seal/stamp as the case may be, you may save settings file, to continue tune-up later, or export seal into image file, save to Microsoft Word Document (*.docx) file, or print seal using your printer.

So, when you restart app, you again presented with clean new seal, but now you can load your recently saved seal by using Open Project and selecting previously saved file. Please don’t forget to save file again if you made any changes in your seal properties in the app.

Exporting

Seals or Stamps can be exported into three different ways: image file, as Microsoft Word Document (*.docx) file, or print using your printer. Please click on export section on file from the software.

Export as Image File

Use Export Image button at top bar of the app to save seal as image. The image format will be PNG, JPG or GIF which is supported by StampSealMaker app. You might decide to use the image in another app; insert into other documents, print it using third-party apps etc. All these are achievable outside of the StampSealMaker with using your exported seal image.

Use Export DocX button at top bar of the app to save seal as Docx file, which is Microsoft Document file. After saving, you may navigate yourself in your operating system to the exported Docx file and open it in your editor (by default – Microsoft Word).

It is useful to change background to see the seal in a new way. To change to back color, press Background. You will be presented with Color choice dialogue, where you can select any color. This color will be applied to the background of the preview of the seal. Please note that this color is not saved in the image when you export it is not saved in Docx file when you save it, and will not print if you print the seal. This color is only for your preview of the seal!

Background Size

This option is located at bottom of preview pane. The default value is near 50 mm. Most of the app settings by default is good fit for this size. You may change this value if you want depending on projects, the more pixels in size then bigger the seal will be, and better the quality, but also tiny lines will be, fonts and etc., so you will be need to edit other properties of the seal as well if you change the size in pixels. The more you practice with the software, the more you get better generating any stamp or seal.
