Straight Liner Metal Design Stamp, 12.5mm (.5")
- Design measures: 12.5mm (.5") x .5mm (.02")
- Made from a 12.5mm x 3mm " rectangle piece of tool steel.
- Since these stamps have long shanks, you may need to strike them twice, once on either end.
- This tool is handmade making it sometimes slightly organic which adds to its charm.
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 love having this straight line stamp to use for flower stems. I also see myself using it to create trees. Very versatile stamp.
Great for just about any nature scene but this straight line stamp can be used in so many designs. Perfect size. Excellent quality.
Sharp line, don’t hit too hard! This has so many uses you will be surprised how many times you reach for it.
Very handy to have. I use it a lot more than I thought I ever would.
