I recently purchased a maker’s mark stamp from Infinity Stamps with
my name and company name on it. I was fairly ambitious and it’s
pretty large for a stamp. So large, that I’m having difficulty
successfully getting the entire stamp transferred onto the metal with
my usual hand stamping methods.
It’s pretty much impossible for me to hold it perfectly
perpendicular with my hands and whack it all at the same time. I get
a partial stamping instead of the entire stamp. Sometimes I also get
a ghost stamp from an (imperceptible to me) bounce. The few times I
have gotten a good stamp, it hasn’t been deep enough to my liking –
this could just be due to the fineness of the stamp itself.
You can see one successful stamping here:
My stamp shank is 8mm square, or I would buy this stamping press by
My stamp is too large to fit.
I’ve searched and googled for something and am hoping someone can
help me find a tool to successfully stamp my fancy new hallmark
without these problems. I’m just a small, in-my-basement designer, so
big presses/equipment aren’t really in my future. I may have to just
write this off as a “now i know better than to design such a large
