- These fonts are rated for stainless steel stamping but will stamp best in soft metals.
Disclaimer: While FBS are RATED for steel, some very detailed FBS images are SUPER large, and some stainless steel stampers with lightweight hammers may find that without a press of some kind may be very difficult to hammer in stainless steel and get a full impression. The image on the left was hammered with a 2lb mallet. No press here. Just use the aluminum vs stainless picture in the listing to be your gauge on what it will look like if you hammer with a heavier mallet.
All Font Fixation brand stamps are manufactured to be used on all metals. The product and listing photos on this website are primarily on 22g stainless steel from www.stampingblanks.com
Some metals are harder than others, for example butter or steak knives, and we do not recommend use on steel of this hardness level.
Our stamps are covered under warranty for 1 year from date of purchase and covers the original purchaser. Stamps purchased from "destash" or "second-hand" groups are not covered under warranty.
"Simple Dimple" stamps are manufactured on 1/4" shanks and are made to fit in most ring jigs. Simple Dimple designs usually fit on 1/4" wide cuffs, because all Simple Dimple design stamps are .5mm-5.5mm, and 1/4" cuffs are 6mm wide.
"Hefty Hitter" stamps are manufactured on 3/8" shanks.
"Fat Bottom Shanks" are stamps that are manufactured on 1/2" shanks. While these size design stamps are rated for stainless steel use, some of these designs are quite detailed and may require the "tilt-and-tap" method to get a full, solid impression. We always recommend using a solid surface that has force transferred directly to the floor (such as a stamping post), using a 2lb steel mallet, and not having any sandbag or such force deadening agent under your anvil. For more information on how to get better impressions, please see our YouTube video "Is My Stamp Defective" at: www.youtube.com/c/FontFixation
Best impressions for larger and more detailed stamps are always in softer metals, like aluminum, brass, copper, pewter, and nugold. If you are a seasoned and skilled stainless steel stamper, you should have little-to-no difficulty with our larger/more detailed stamps in stainless steel. If you are a beginner stamper, we recommend you start with softer metals like those listed above, and as your skill level increases it should be easier to transition to stainless steel.
