Brass letter stamps

6 posts in this topic

Like many others I have seen videos by Ian and Nigel about high quality professional stamps made from brass.

I was wondering if anyone here has experience of the lower cost options from a forum sponsor or the various other ones available from the internet.

Ideally I would like to start with a smaller set and expand this in the future if required. I have an arbour press and plan to use it hot and cold.

Thanks

Michael

Not letter stamps, but I've had stamps of line-art cut in brass by a few sellers in China/Taiwan/Malaysia

Cost from £14 for a 2cm stamp. Cutting is perfect to the line-art, even very fine lines have been reproduced. Takes about 9 -10 days from ordering & paying till the stamp drops through the letterbox. Tried 3 different sellers/cutters, just see if there was difference in quality or speed of delivery - not a sausage betwixt any of them

Never a problem. I'll be ordering more soon

You might look into photoengravers near you, should  be able to make "deep etch" stamps for leather.

I think the hexnhit sets are worth saving up for. Yes, they are expensive. But once you have them, easy lettering for the rest of your days.

I think they are worth the money.
