Craft Tool Review: ImpressArt Metal Stamps

I’ve wanted to try out a set of metal stamps from the first moment I saw what they could do. Luckily, the fine folks at ImpressArt shared my enthusiasm, and when I ran into them at CHA, they generously provided a full set of letters and numbers for me to review.

In case you’re not familiar with how they work, metal stamps are tools that are used to stamp letters or designs into metals, and they are most often used in jewelry making. To add a letter or design to a metal object, the stamp is placed against the object, then a hammer is used to firmly strike the end of the stamp, which creates a permanent impression of the shape in the metal. For this review, I tried some of the more traditional uses, then I tested additional materials —like wood, paper, and polymer clay—to see how versatile one set of stamps could be.

What I loved:
1. The square shape of the stamps made them easy to hold and ensured that my letters were always at the same angle.

2. The letters came out crisp and easy to read, even when they contained decorative flourishes

    I am using a silver-plated steel drop for stamping with Impressart Menorah and Chai symbols, but the impression is way to light. Is this metal too hard for stamping? I am about to return my Menorah symbol as it is almost invisible on the metal. I would love if you could tell me what I am doing wrong.

    Thank you in advance,

    Roberta
