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.

I have gone through two paw prints that were just horrible to work with. When I saw this one I got excited. It is a dream to stamp with, large sturdy, easy to hold, and stamps evenly and nicely each time. It is larger, but works great on my 1 1/4 id tag blanks
Easy to stamp and great size
I was delighted when the dog paw stamp arrived. The quality is great and it stamps really well and easy to hold. However, the stamp lines are so fine that it doesn't impress wide enough and hold enough oxide to make it visually stand out on the blanks.Even though it's a large stamp its hard to see on the piece which is disappointing. I am using silver but I tried it on copper with the same result.The lines are just too fine.
