In this article, we’ll introduce the newly launched ‘MyStamp’ feature on Instagram Stories. We cover how to use it, the benefits it brings to business accounts, and solutions for situations where ‘MyStamp’ may not be available. Take a look for valuable insights.
The new feature on Instagram Stories, ‘MyStamp’
MyStamp is a new feature added to Instagram Stories. Specifically, it allows you to create your original stamp by cropping a selected part of a photo. The completed stamp is saved, allowing you to use it freely at any time.
It’s worth noting that MyStamp is currently available only to some users. Not all users have access to this feature, so it’s recommended to check if MyStamp is available on the smartphone of your company’s Instagram manager.
Very easy! How to Use MyStamp
Using MyStamp is very easy! Let’s try it out with the following steps.
1. First, open the posting screen for Stories and tap the smiley face icon in the top right corner. Next, tap ‘Cutout’ in the displayed menu.
2.Once the camera roll opens, choose the photo you want to turn into a stamp. The cropping will be done automatically.
3.If you want to use the cropped image directly as a stamp, tap ‘Use Stamp.’ If you prefer to make edits, tap ‘Select Manually.’
Once you are satisfied with the stamp, you can paste it onto Stories just like regular stamps. You can also adjust the size using pinch-in and pinch-out gestures.
The created stamps can be found as ‘MyStamps’ on the screen that appears when you tap the smiley face icon in the top right corner of the posting screen for Stories. Tapping ‘See All’ will display all the original stamps you’ve created, making them available for use at any time.
If you wish to delete a created stamp, long-press the stamp, and you will be able to delete it.
The Benefits MyStamp Brings to Business Accounts
Utilizing MyStamp can be advantageous for businesses engaged in Instagram operations.
For instance, creating stamps of the company’s logo or products using MyStamp allows for displaying the logo or products every time a Story is posted. This, in turn, can contribute to enhancing brand awareness. Users who happen to see the logo or products while browsing may recall the company and its offerings, potentially increasing the likelihood of them visiting the physical store or engaging with the business.
By utilizing MyStamp to help users remember the company’s logo or products, there is a potential to encourage purchases or service usage. This aspect can be considered a significant benefit for businesses.
