If you are like me — a lover of Snagit and other graphics software alike, you always enjoy getting your hands on nice graphic elements that you can use to enhance your screen captures, perhaps make your reports nicer, more professional and so on.
So I thought I’d share some nice free/low cost graphic resources that you can use as Snagit Stamps…
Snagit Stamps Collection
The first stop should of course be TechSmith’s Stamp collection. All stamps are free to download and use with SnagIt. Among my favorites you find the “stamp” stamps. A collection of words as a stamp (see image) and the Smiley’s.

If you spend a lot of time online you have probably seen Silk Icons practically every day. These wonderful little icons are used both online, in reports and in software applications. The silk icon collection is over 700 16×16 pixel icons, many ideal for websites and software.

My sister never let me play with her dolls, I guess that’s why I just love these little guys.
You can go to Stortroopers and create your own, dress him and everything. When you’re done, save him to your Snagit Stamps folder and voila, you have a little stortrooper stamp.

Snagit SuperStamps Collection
As you may have guessed I really use the Snagit Stamps alot so I finally decided to put together a Stamp collection of my own – SuperStamps. Unlike the other resources in the blog post, SuperStamps isn’t free, but I feel they are well worth the $19.95. SuperStamps includes 197 high quality professional stamps in .png format. This means that you can enlarge or shrink them without loosing any quality. They are quite large 256×256 pixels.
You can easily use Snagit and SuperStamps to create an image like this.
I just took one Superstamp, shrunk it to about half the size, copied it into a shadow and did the shadow transparent. Voila, a few seconds later you have a professional graphic image that you can use in a report or perhaps in a blog post.

I would love to hear from you in the comment section below if you like the resources above and also please share other free graphic resources that are suitable to use as Snagit Stamps or, well just good graphic icons, stamps and images.
Thanks and have an excellent day 😉

I really love Sangit. Its one of the best software in the market today. Keep up the good work Snagit Team.
I just want to tell u that i simply love SnagIT. Thanks for those stamps graphics.Keep up ur Team work.
I am trying to create in-house step by step instructions on how to perform video capture using SNAGIT. I am trying to capture SNAGIT’s home page w/Quick Launch, Related Tasks, Profiles, and Profiles Settings. But when I use Printscreen it activates SNAGIT. I’ve also tried to use Ctrl Insert, Ctrl A, Ctrl C to capture the screen but to no avail. Is there some way that I can get around the Print Screen hotkey and get my screen capture? I would appreciate feedback as soon as possible…thank you and have a nice holiday…

Kathy, did you find an answer to this problem? I am trying to do the very same thing this morning!
You mentioned a process dealing with creating shadows and transparency. Do you have a tutorial on how that is done?
I found SnagIt and downloaded a free ciopy 3 years ago. Paid for it ever since. The best…
Been making my own stamps for a few years now using Photoshop. I make my stamps in PNG and use them to make funny photos of people I know, friends, etc. My collection has grown and I’ve resorted to backing up my stamps since I’ve amassed a large collection and all the work that went into some of them. Anyway, I still use version 8, I couldnt work with the later version, too complicated. I am happy with SnagIt and love playing with it making funny photos and creating my own stamps.
Thanks for your comment and voting on SuperStamps. Do you have examples of your stamps that I could take a look at, I’d love to see them!
I don’t have any of my stamps online, I’ll have to figure out a way to upload them to some site. I’ll have to get back to you on that. Oh, about voting, yes, after I voted, I noticed that the voting was over. Sorry.
