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.

This is a fun stamp. I have used it for boarders and scenes. It is clean and clear. I do use a tilt and tap method for all my larger stamps to ensure the most detail.
I love the stamp. I have to hit it several times to get a good impression but I only have a 1 lb. mallet.
i love this stamp. i used it border my circle blanks and added a monogram letter in middle. very elegant.
