I think that most printers are going to be able to make stamps. The main thing is to pick a material that is food contact safe.

Colorfabb nGen is probably your best bet as it is easy to print with, produces good surface detail and, according to colorfabb is contact food safe.

The next question is:

how big are the stamps
what depth do you need for the relief
Are you using letters/text

Basically you will need to select a printer that is large enough (depending on size of stamps), although since most are at the least 15x15x15cm print volumes I think even the smallest should be adequate, unless they are giant cakes.

Nest its about minimum feature size. If its suitably small then you will want to be able to swap the nozzles so you can use nozzles with a small aperture size so you can get better xy resolution

The last question is also very important, what is your budget?

Any questions feel free to contact us via the website and we can discuss suitable models.
