PRODUCT DETAILS

This thick lined, rustic, spooky font is the perfect font for your holiday and masculine stamped works. Brought to us by the foundry, Hanoded, David Kerkhoff created this font with thicker lines, mis-sized letters, and intends for it to be used with offset lettering to give it this unique look!

  • This font comes in: 3mm, 4.5mm, 6.5mm
  • Shank sizes: 1/4", 5/16"
  • Sets available: Unicase, Alternates (06), Numbers
  • Alternates letters: B, C, E, O, X, Z

       

      My Two Cents:

      • This font is thick lined and may be best if used in soft metals.
      • The sizing of this font RANGES per size; the tallest letter (Y) is 3mm taller than the smallest letter (O), PER SIZE of each font. THIS IS A HUGE SIZE DISCREPANCY WITHIN THIS FONT and is entirely the intended look by the foundry. This includes the numbers which also have sizing discrepancies among each number, and again, is intentional and as per the foundry specifications for this font.

      • The lettering is MEANT to be different sizes, and that means it will look best WITHOUT tape.

      • In my blog post of "Four Types of Fonts" - I would categorize this font under both MASCULINE and FUN categories! 

      • The 6.5mm size of this font is thick lined and leaves slight ridges in the impression to help hold ink. These ridges can be vaguely seen close up when the letters are not filled in with color.

      RECOMMENDATIONS

      Amazing Keyrings and Charms:

      • I recommend Keychain Supply for all of your crafting keyring, charms, and birthstone needs! Link to their Etsy shop here: KeychainSupply

      For Stainless Steel blanks:

      • I use all of the 22g, standard stainless steel from StampingBlanks.com and highly recommend this metal as a shiny, silver alternative. Be advised, to use stainless steel as your stamping blanks, you will need to have a solid base/stamping post and heavier mallet, which will require you to have different stamping supplies. Please watch my stainless steel stamping video here.

      For Aluminum blanks & Cuffs:

      • Any aluminum on this site, in the form of Cuffs, is from Optimal Alloys. Any aluminum blank, especially the super adorable shapes, is from Birds Eye Blanks. We highly recommend getting the "polished" or "tumbled" blanks from these sites -- the reflection in the metal makes it much easier to see where you are stamping.

      VERY IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

      • Our font metal stamps are programmed to be as close to the original typeset fonts as possible, although there may be slight variations from typeset to actual stamp based on a variety of programming and stamping needs. Please use the actual stamped images provided on our site and in each listing to see the stamped version.

      • Sizing for Font Fixation's font metal stamps is ALWAYS based on the TALLEST letter in the UPPERCASE alphabet. This does not mean that all uppercase letters are sized the same. The entire set (uppercase and lowercase) are sized according to the Foundry's intention for their font. This means there may be a HUGE disparity between how tall an uppercase set is, vs how small the lowercase set is -- and this should be noted and seen by you in the listing example of every font.    

      • The bigger and more detailed the design, the more difficult to stamp, especially in hard metals like stainless steel. Because of this, we try to note in the Product Description if something is best for soft metals specifically, despire being "RATED" for stainless steel. 

      • Knives are hardened steel and there really isn't a brand of metal stamps that should ever be used on knives... including ours at Font Fixation. 

      • While our large, 12mm designs (also called Fat Bottom Shanks, or FBS) are RATED for steel, some very detailed FBS images are SUPER large, and some stainless steel stampers with lightweight hammers may find these large, detailed stamps very difficult to hammer in stainless steel and get a full impression.

      • Every image on this site that is hammered in stainless steel was hammered with a 2lb mallet, on a stamping post with no buffer between the anvil and the post. No sandbag, no pad, just the anvil on a solid stamping post going straight to the floor. No press here. Still having a tough time?

      WARRANTY

      • Our Blog section of the site has everything you need to know.
      • But here it is again, just to save you a few more clicks :)
      • 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"
      • 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.
