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.

Love this stamp. Its good to mark your metal work with honesty. Is a good price on the web.
Good stamp, leaves a clear impression. I recently had a (potential) customer ask how I knew my design was sterling silver if it didn't have a 925 stamp so I thought I should buy one. Naturally I checked at beaducation first as they always supply quality products.
Quality produt but numbers are way to small. You need a magnifying glass to see it. Numbers needs to be slightly larger and more space between them. Very disappointed.
I always mark my sterling!!

This is the worst stamp I've ever used. I know it's supposed to be small, but it's almost illegible. It is also not positioned well. Of the 50+ times I've tried to use it, it always comes out crooked.
The numbers are so microscopic, it is kinda pointless. It sits in my stamp holder getting dusty. Maybe I can use for texturing something...
Excited to start marking my pieces
As some others have said, the numbers are VERY small. Yes, I know the size is given in the description. For some reason the numbers were smaller than I expected. I think it will still work fine for marking my pieces as being sterling.
This is a great stamp. I don't bigger.
