Do you have  a stamp cleaning pad or spray? You can pick it up from any craft store, but it’s a mixture of the stamp being dirty and using too much ink. So, get a cleaner, wipe it down, and then use a little bit less ink. 🙂

What surface are you stamping on? Sometimes it helps to use a stamp pad underneath because it will even out the imperfections of the table or whatever that you are stamping on…if that makes sense? Cause it looks like from the pic that it isn’t covering those parts? Also make sure you don’t rock the stamp back and forth, but press down hard on all sides and angles. 

those are just a few suggestions!

When I was making my save the dates, my stamps looks like this because the ink was dry on one part of the stamp pad… I got a new stamp pad and now they stamp great.

Try inking the stamp on differant parts of the pad.

Try running an eraser over your stamp that way the surface of your stamp isn’t so slippery for the ink. A lot of stamp companies I have purchased from recommend that for new stamps.

Are you using quick drying ink?

@kmarie719:  Are you using ink for an acrylic stamp? Sometimes ink for rubber stamps just doesn’t work with acrylic stamps.

Just found this forum post with your same problem, so here’s a couple of more solutions, in addition to the eraser trick I suggested, that might work.

Some people suggest Staz-on ink pads (I’ve used these and they are great, but they permanently ink up your stamps, which may or may not matter to you; For me personally, I like to keep my stamps clear and pretty, but it doesn’t affect the quality of the stamp or ruin it.)

Another trick suggested was lightly abrading it with sand paper.
