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 sheet to practice on.
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.

This dog is terrific. My stamp collection had been missing a dog and this was a great fit. It leaves a very nice impression, but I do feel you need a 2 lbs hammer and use tilt and tap.
Great stamp. It needs a good whack. I can't seem to "tilt and tap" without getting a double impression, but i've had to realign the stamp after removing it to complete the impression.
My first dog! A nice addition to the paw prints I have.
