  • These stamps require a 2lb hammer and a lot of practice.
  • Click on the PDF below to review the Tilt n' Tap method.  A slow and consistent Tilt n' Tap is necessary to get this large stamp to impress properly.
  • Design measures: 5/8" (16mm) exterior diameter, 1/2" (12.5mm) interior diameter.
  • This leaves 12mm of inner circle stamping space!
  • Made from 3/4" square heat-treated tool steel.
  • Beaducation Original Design
  • Made in the USA 
  • Arrive coated in oil to prevent rusting. 
  • Wipe oil away with paper towel. Do not use water.

DesignStamps are a bit tricky. I highly recommend you practice on some cheaper metal before diving into your Sterling Silver or Gold Filled. Click here to purchase a piece of copper sheet for practicing.

For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block, make sure you are working on a stable table, and use a utility hammer (nail pounding hammer) which weighs at least 16 ounces. Feel free to hit the stamp more than once, but hold that stamp steady, making sure you don't shift at all between hits. The more confident you are with the hammer and the strength behind it, thebetter your impression will be.

- BIG NEWS, This Stamp Is Rated for Stainless -
  • Rated to use on all soft metals and stainless steel (if you are a newbie, "rated" means it's specifically rated yes/good/go for it).
  • Knives are hardened steel and none of our stamps should be used on knife blades.
  • Just because a stamp "can" stamp in stainless, doesn't mean it will be easy. We do not recommend this metal for beginners. Stainless steel is very difficult to stamp on because it is such a hard metal. The larger and/or more intricate the design, the harder it will be to impress into stainless. Tape your blank to your bench block and consider using a 2 lb hammer.
  • We highly recommend buying a few stainless steel blanks to use as practice pieces.

WAIT, WHAT? Haven't you always said to not use these stamps on stainless?

The short answer - Yes, you are correct. Our rule has been to keep our stamps off of all stainless but we have now realized that is too general. Not all stainless is created equal and with the now widely available jewelry-grade stainless blanks (most often grade 304, 316 or 430), we have discovered that our stamps hold up great on non-hardened stainless (all the stainless blanks we sell).

The long answer - The rule to keep our stamps off stainless came from years ago when we really couldn't tell what kind of stainless people were stamping on but often it was non-jewelry items that were too hard and could damage the stamps. Now that we carry blanks made mostly for jewelry intention (and some pet tags) we decided to reevaluate and take a closer look and challenge our rule. After extensive research and testing of both our tools and stainless blanks (both in-house and sending them out to machine shops to be tested), the results are in....and we can say with total confidence that our stamps will hold up on non-hardened stainless. I (Lisa) have personally tested many of our Beaducation Original design stamps and letter sets and I've had a handful of customers test them as well (testing with 100+ impressions). We have found that they can impress into stainless steel quite well AND they hold up. For example, I stamped one of our script letters 700 times into a few of our stainless blanks (and on a spoon!). The stamp and its impression still look great. That being said, if you are wondering how long they will last if mainly being used in stainless, we really have no way of accurately answering that. There are so many factors involved (what exactly you are stamping, the amount of detail in the design, overall stamp size, what size hammer you use, etc.) but based on our testing, it will last a long time. :)

The Advantage Series and Stamp Yours stamps will last even longer. They are very sharp faced and made to endure high volume stamping in stainless (but again, don't stamp on hardened knife blades).

For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block with the exception of a Sandbag, make sure you are working on a stable table, and use a hammer which weighs at least 16 ounces. We recommed a Brass Head Mallet. Feel free to hit the stamp more than once, but hold the stamp steady, making sure you don't shift at all between hits. The more confident you are with the hammer and the strength behind it, the better your impression will be.

I was nervous about using this at first because it's so big, so I practiced on some flubbed blanks. I used a 2lb. hammer, and the stamps were almost perfect from the start! Great product.

This is a very tricky stamp and I have many other large Beaducation stamps that I can successfully stamp. I do feel a 2lbs hammer is a necessity with this. Using tilt and tap, I do get a full imprint of this stamp but on copper I always get a double image. I do better on aluminum at getting one, solid image but I don’t typically work with aluminum. My metal of choice is pewter. I don’t have any scrap pewter, so as of this writing I haven’t tried this stamp on a good pewter blank. I do love this stamp design.

I love this stamp but you need to practice first and always use the tilt and tap method with a 2 lb hammer.
