Found 13th Jan
Up till know, I have just been shredding all documents that contained sensitive information. I found that about 80% of the stuff I was shredding only contained my name and address, which was a lot of paper. So ended up just cutting those bits out, and then collectively shredding them in one go significantly reducing the amount of paper. I started looking into alternatives, as it was getting a bit tedious, and came across this stamp roller.

Now, there are a couple more similar stamps that are cheaper (some coming from China), but this also gives you three additional refills (value of £4.99 on Amazon) and as a bonus a free e-book (might contain some useful information), and is fulfilled by Amazon. In the end, I went for this to same time and shredding. That way I can dump any documents straight into the recycle bin without the tedious additional need to shred them. Hope this also helps someone.

Burn it - no coming back from that.
I’ve read all the comments and decided to:
1- ink roller the important info
2- shred it
3- burn the shreds
4- soak the ashes into a mush
5- put on the compost

Thanks everyone

Surely this will be as tedious, possibly even more tedious.
shred then put it in the compost bin (:

actually see these on qvc and they were dearer than this so im hot
Sounds like a cool little gizmo. Shredding is so tedious and the shredder panics after 5 mins and needs a rest. Saw the other variety of this for cheaper but no spare ink. I'm very tempted

Or burn them

Shred and recycle.


Yes, that's what I've been doing till now. But the shredder gets filled very quickly and then I have to empty it in a bag with little bits and paper dust flying all around, and then down to recycle. I know, not the hardest of tasks, but this allows me to lazily roll over the important parts and stick in the recycle. I've also heard somewhere that shredded paper cannot be recycled because it clogs the machines (?), but don't know how accurate that info is.

I tear out the name and address bits, add water, mash into a ball, compost, recycle the rest.
Tearing is tedious, actual maintenance of an ink stamp is worse. Why not get some permanent ink markers?

Because you can still read through permanent ink. This forms a pattern so that the underlying text becomes impossible to differentiate.
Our recycling people don't take shredded paper. No clue why

aha. no, burn it or stick in a bucket of water and mash it. ashes and papier mache into the compost.
Do a quick Google.... Some of this ink can be removed with a bit of isopropyl alcohol and a q tip. Leaving the confidential print visible.
Don't know if all makes are the same.

In our area, we take shredded paper for recycling.

Shredded paper in a clear bag is acceptable, just not all the small bits bunged into the wheelie bin loose.

Now THAT I'd vote hot.
I have one and use Indian ink to refill. Works great if someone wants to meticulously use a cotton bud and alcohol on my details they can have them. Heat.

Sounds good. Where do you get the ink from? Looks like I'll be using this mostly from now on, and the shredder only for those documents that need shredding.

Agree about the alcohol. Can't see anyone that desperate. And wouldn't they be rubbing out the original details anyway?

It's extremely easy to read through these, the difference in ink is very obvious making no difference at all to security

It is very difficult to read through, actually, and 2 swipes makes it impossible on most surfaces to differentiate the original, let alone read it.
Could be a good price if comparing like for like. But IMO, buying a cross-cut shredder seems to be more economical and secure. Obviously you could do the same by hand.

I have it. It's not.
Got this today. Admittedly, works on some types of paper extremely well. On the more embossed-type print, it doesn't. Some things will still need shredding, but less.

If you only want the e-book, you can grab it HERE.

I have it too. It is. Maybe it’s something to do with the quality of ink used.
