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.

This was part of my very first order from Beaducation. I am a newbie to metal stamping. I had a little issue with lining up perfectly, butt that I hope will improve with practice. My piece came out acceptable for my first piece, I think anyway. I really like this stamp set, like the way work, & can see many uses for the individual stamps.
On another note: I ordered onThursday and received my order TODAY in Louisiana. I used the cheapest shipping option. EXCELLENT SERVICE!
