Each stamp in this alphabet and numbers set has a straight shank and a flat tip face that's perpendicular to the tool shank, marking it ideal for flat surfaces such as quality or brand tags, discs, stampings and other components. The stamps are made from tempered steel to deliver years of service. This set includes 36 stamps: 26 letters, nine numerals and an "&" symbol. Design stamps are ideal for adding decorative detailing or lettering to your jewelry designs. Customize with date, monograms and more to make jewelry even more personal for your customers.
For best results—and because any stamped mark is not easy to remove once it's made—it's important to practice before attempting to mark your jewelry designs. Scrap pieces of sheet or base metal ring blanks are ideal for helping you get the feel of both the stamp and the power needed for an effective hammer strike. Use a brass mallet to strike the stamp to help prevent damage to your stamp, and support your workpiece on a bench block or an anvil. Finally, do your stamping before setting stones so that there is no risk of damaging settings or loosening set stones.
