    Hints for Stamping
Buckeye Engraving recommends the following hints for making the most of
your new Buckeye Custom Steel Hand Stamp.
  • Always use safety glasses when using stamps.  Stamps are hardened steel and may
    shatter, even when used by someone with years of experience.
  • Begin with a light hammer.  You can always go deeper by lining up the stamp with the
    first impression and re-striking.


  • Practice first.  Use your new stamp a few times on a practice piece first before stamping
    your finished products.

  • Never strike the face of the stamp with a hammer.

  • A controlled, even swing will give the best results; do not try to overpower the stamp.

  • If a stamp chips or cracks, do not continue using it.  A cracked stamp may break from the
    stress of being struck, even when stamping soft material.
