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.

Crisp ,clean, perfect size.
These are really nice Monogram letters. You can get a really nice impression with a good wack from a 2lb brass mallet. There is no orientation markings on these stamps so I recommend marking them before you start. Some of them are a little tricky to figure out which way is up and the 'L' and the 'Z' look very similar. Overall I am happy with them especially since I bought them on sale.
