Q. What are Metal Stamps, Who uses them and Why? A. As you’re on our website, you most likely know what metal stamps are. But, just in case you’re not sure, no worries. Here’s a brief clarification: Chances are you’ve seen or used a rubber stamp. A metal stamp is also a marking tool but there’s a big difference. It is intended for permanently stamping various materials. Simply imagine a stamp made of metal instead of rubber and then look around you. There’s no doubt you will see items made of metal with markings on them such as a logo, a name or a code of some sort. From personal metal and leather items you may be wearing, to hand tools and kitchen utensils, all these items and many more around you, were stamped with various kinds of metal stamps. Some imprinted and impressed marks may have been stamped by hand using a hammer or mallet, while other markings may have involved the use of presses. There’s an endless array of products made of metal, plastics, leather, wood and more that are stamped for identification and promotional purposes. Anyone who makes something; manufacturers, tradesmen, artisans and those who want to deter theft, all want to stamp their logo or name on their product or belongings.
Q. Is a metal stamp different from a punch, a die, a stamper, an embosser, a steel stamp or a stencil? A. Sometimes metal stamps have other names such as those mentioned in the question above. Our website includes a wide range of metal stamps and we have done our best to make it as informative and helpful as possible. Should you need assistance in determining what kind of metal stamp would be most suitable for your specific application(s), please do not hesitate to contact us.
Q. How long will my stamp last, and how many imprints can I get? A. The answer depends on several factors: The material you’re marking, the frequency and volume you’re stamping, as well as proper use and care. Based what many of our customers have told us, our stamps are lasting them far longer in comparison to stamps they purchased elsewhere.
