What is Jewelry Metal Stamping? Metal stamping is a great way to make handmade jewelry with character, while also allowing you to be creative in the designs you make! When it comes to jewelry design, metal stamping is a process that dates back thousands of years to the seventh century where the process was used for the creation of gold and silver coins. You may also notice number and letter markings on your fine jewelry pieces, that's metal stamping too! We understand the importance of trending designs and high-quality hand stamps, which is why we offer such a large collection of detailed metal design stamps! Commonly mistaken for engraved jewelry, metal stamping is the process of using hardened steel stamps to make impressions in metal. Different than mass-produced engraved jewelry, metal stamping is a metalworking technique that allows for artisan creativity and craftsmanship that expands beyond boring design. Metal stamping allows for the creation of one-of-a-kind designs, and with our hundreds of metal stamps, there are endless possibilities for your creativity with our metal stamps for jewelry!

Included in this kit is a variety of metal stamping blanks, uppercase and lowercase metal letter stamps, metal number stamps, a steel bench block, stamping tape, and a couple of jewelry-making supplies. This kit is the perfect starting point to get involved in the art of metal stamping, with our practice metal stamping sheet. When just getting started with metal stamping, we always recommend practicing the blow of your hammer and impressing your stamps with more and less power in order to find the perfect depth for your impressions in your hand-stamped jewelry pieces. Our metal stamping starter kit doesn't include a hammer, as many individuals already have a hammer, but if you're in the market for a hammer, take a look at our stamping hammers! This starter jewelry stamping kit also doesn't include any metal design stamps, as we feel it's important you master the art of stamping with letters and numbers before you move onto more intricate stamps like our metal design stamps.

Are your metal hand stamps stainless rated? In the past, we may have said no, but after extensive testing, we've determined our metal stamps can in fact be used on stainless steel. Something to note, though, is all stainless steel stamping blanks are not made equal. To ensure you have the proper grade of stainless steel for stamping, purchase your stainless steel stamping blanks from Beaducation as all of our stainless steel blanks can be stamped. Please also note that stamping on stainless steel is not for beginners, as it takes a lot of practice and skill to perfect, even the most seasoned stampers have difficulty stamping on stainless steel. The more detailed the design stamp, the more difficult it will be to stamp. If you do decide to stamp on stainless steel, make sure you have a sturdy stamping surface like a stamping post, you can learn how to make a stamping post with our detailed instructions. If you're just getting started with stamping, we recommend you opt for softer metals like aluminum blanks and pewter blanks, you'll have much more success with clear impressions and less possibility of double stamping impressions.
