well if you keep the stamps then i say dye it a color that you can find easily. is that what you are trying to do or do you want to remove the stamp and hand cut something?

Anytime I have dyed a clear-ish disc an entirely different color, it looks badass. I recommend dunking it in a pot of water and either royal blue or scarlet rit. Get 2 quarts of water steaming, like 120 degrees F (exactly 120, IMO, is the best temp), mix 1/3 or so of the rit in the water until it dissolves, and make sure the pan is off the stove and the dye is no more than 120 F and dunk her in, flight plate down, for as long as you like. Use a stainless steel something to pull it out and check on it every 5 minutes or so, it shouldn't take more than twenty to get a brilliantly colored Teerex in your bag.

I say keep the stamp, don't get carried away with dye graphics- just make the disc findable, and pretty to boot.

Didn't Frank D dye a clear champ beast red somewhere in the artwork forum?
