I found this article, which IMHO, justifies the purchase of a 3D printer.

No reason why they wouldn't work, if they start to wear, just print new ones! I don't think you could get real crisp fine details like metal stamps could?

I had a few simple ones made some years ago and they last well and produce sharp impressions.

I can also chip in here. My day job is for a company that makes a popular 3D printer and so I have access to all of the various materials they use. I 3D print embossing stamps for my products and then use my 4 ton clicker to impress it into leather. The sharpness is very good but not quite as good a hot stamper. For just a few dollars worth of material, you can create a nice custom stamp.

As for longevity, I have some of these stamps that I've never had to replace. Others that have thin line details will eventually break but as somebody else here said, you can just print another one.
