- 152mm (6") x 25.4mm (1")

- Aluminum Metal Info -
- If the blank has a protective film, remove it before stamping.
- Requires a lighter hammer strike.
- Does not tarnish.
- Not for soldering, but great for riveting!
- We recommend a Sharpie, Gilders Paste or JAX Aluminum Blackener to darken impressions (this does not apply to anodized aluminum).
- Silver Black and Liver of Sulfur are NOT recommended.
- Something about the polishing compound in Pro Polish Pads can sometimes cause a "cloudy" look on aluminum. For this reason we recommend using a Sunshine Cloth to polish your aluminum and Rubbing Alcohol to remove any surface ink or enamel used to fill impressions.
- We recommend using the Screw Down Hole Punch or the Power Punch Plier rather than hole punch pliers.
I love the aluminum blanks for stamping. They take an impression well and are so good for both messages and designs. I do sand the edges so they have a curve, that's my preference to have the rounded ends.
I love the size of these blanks to use for bookmarks. They are perfect. The aluminum is great to stamp on, too. I get beautiful impressions.
Love the size of this one, can't go wrong with aluminum, easy to stamp!
I don't love these. They look and feel pretty cheap. But they do stamp very easy so I'm determined to find a way to make them look good. Definitely sand the corners down, they are very sharp.
Thinner than I'd like, but easy to stamp. Definitely better as a bookmark, vs. bracelet.
I haven't used this blank as a bracelet, but I have used them for bookmarks and they work wonderfully for that. Also, they aren't that expensive, so it gives you a good canvas to create beautiful scenes! Lots of possibilities. Can't go wrong.
Not impressed, won’t order again.
Just put in another order for these blanks. They are just the right for bookmarks, thin enough to fit nicely between pages but thick enough to stamp well. I also agree with other comments about the sharp edges, sand them down!
