Design Stamps are a bit tricky. I highly recommend you practice on some cheap 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 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 loved the idea of having a different style wing so there was another option for customers besides the typical wing style. Only issue at times is that it tends to stamp deeper on tops of wings than on bottom - no matter how I hold it. Sometimes I have re stamp cause the bottom doesn't always stamp. So make sure to hit hard the first time if not on aluminum.
I was so happy to find these wings when I started stamping. They are unique. Very small. I do agree with the other reviewer about the impressions they make. I would use these on aluminum or other soft metals for the best impressions. So worth getting though.
These are so cute. I've used them a few times with the baby feet for memorial pieces.
