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.

I bought the "handmade" stamp to go with the Copper Rectangle w/Top Loop (14.5mm x 9mm), 24g and it worked perfectly. There's enough room for the handmade plus your name, initials or company name. Just what I needed to make my own tags.
The lettering is small but readable. Cute stamp.
