Custom hallmark stamp?


#1

I would like to have a custom hallmark stamp made from my own design.
Obviously, many jewelry makers have this done, but I can’t seem to
find anyplace that will produce one. An internet source would be very
helpful, though not required. Thanks!

Rio Grande does this all the time. Contact them at 1-800-545-6566.
This is a special order item but not a problem for them to do. You
will need a good copy of your logo available.

worked with both and they both make good stamps.

Hallmark stamps are available for flat and Rings etc. Logos can be
reproduced and depending on the designs some can be made on computer
operated machines.

Cost of Stamp is from $35.00 to $80.00 each. You can fax us the logo
or a sketch of the mark you want and let us know the size of the
lettering and we can quote you a price.

Hello Valerie: I ordered one from Rio Grande and was pleased. My stamp
is a diagonal MRM Their web address is http://www.riogrande.com/ If your
stamp design is to complex it may cost extra. They send the work out
of course and if they don’t want to mess with it maybe they know
someone who does.

Valerie,

I’ve got a couple of stamps made by these folks, and they’re great.
Just send them a picture and they’ll make a stamp of it.

Regarding doing custom stamp. You need a very crisp black and white
image. If not a photographic image, like a velox, make sure you draw
with very opaque ink on very smooth card stock. You don’t want ragged
edges. But most important, try using a copy machine and reducing your
image to the actual size that you want. If it doesn’t read well in a
photocopy, it doesn’t have much chance in a stamp.

If your stamp is too complicated and you want a .8mm high stamp, for
instance, it might not read well. Also, if you have positive and
negative elements, you’ll have to experiment with the “openness” (sp?)
of your design. Sometimes when you reduce an image down, the open
areas all but disappear.

I sincerely hope this adds some food for thought and leads to some
experimenting because it is a rather expensive mistake to get back an
unusable stamp. The stamp companies follow your size specifications
and use your artwork so the responsibility to troubleshoot your design
is completely in your hands.

Valerie, Have you considered ‘signing’ your work while in it’s wax
stage? Sometimes when I produce a piece, I ‘sign’ it with my name with
a sharp pointed tool just as a painter would his/her brush. The
results are nice and seems a practical and temporary way around the
the cost and paperwork involved in registering the trademark. I’m not
completely familiar with the legalities concerning whether you can
sell your work outside the state and so on. I sell my work locally.

Hello Valerie, I recommend sparks steel stamps to all my customers…
I usually recommend that you have the stamp made on a gooseneck
shank. this will allow you to stamp on the inside of ring shanks as
well as on flat items… so it can be used for all your jewelry
needs.

Their phone number is : 718-729-7506 ask for Irwin or Vincent. They
are very helpful and knowledgeable.
