Custom Chicken Egg Stamp - Do's and Don'ts

Updated: Mar 21, 2021


It's not as easy as you think to stamp an egg. I got so excited when I saw this idea, I immediately bought a custom stamp with our logo. I didn't research a good size, just clicked pay on the Etsy site. It's 1.5"x 1.5". My sister, however, secretly bought me one with our coop name on it from another vendor that was specific for eggs. Its 1" x 0.5". Much smarter.



Practice makes perfect! As you can see from the pictures, I had to practice on several eggs before getting one that is good. Not even perfect, but good. You have to find the perfect balance of pressure, without it slipping and be able to rock it across the curved surface to get the full design. No one is born with that skill set.




Its very important to get a food grade stamp pad. Eggs are porous so you don't want to put anything on the shell you don't want to eat. They are easy to find. I got mine on Amazon.Try not to get too much ink on the stamp. Otherwise, it will slip around on the egg.






I was finally able to get one I was proud of! I still haven't been able to get one of the logo to look good at all. Just like a lot of things with chickens, patience and practice. I am excited to give my neighbors their next batch of eggs with an adorable custom stamp! Maybe one day, I'll get one made for each hen.



See my horrible attempt to stamp the eggs in this video. Fail!
