You can tie a bow with single-sided satin but it takes a lot more time and effort to get all the satin sides facing out. Much easier and faster to get a pretty bow with double-sided.

As far as stamps, I would think that a stamp on satin ribbon would bleed and on grosgrain wouldn’t sink into the lines so you’d end up with a stripy stamp? I’m not an expert on stamping ribbons though.

Single sided satin will work, but like @soccerball said, it takes some time to get it to look nice. I think you should be able to stamp satin ribbon, you just want to make sure that you don’t have too much ink on the stamp, and I am not sure you would want to use pigment ink.

On the bows, I think single sided is fine for smaller bows.  It depends on what you’re using it for and how big the bow will be.  if you’re trying to do a large sash, I’d go with double sided.  if you’re just doing small bows on programs, I’d do single sided.  You can stamp the satin, but you’ll need to buy ink that won’t bleed.  Look for quick drying inks.  I’m not very familiar with grosgrain, but I used a TON of satin for our wedding.
