Got a green thumb or know someone who loves to garden? Help keep pots, planters, and garden beds organized with hand-stamped garden markers.
Place garden marker on stamping block. Secure straight stamp guide on garden marker. Use guide marks to evenly space out letters and align stamp impressions.
TIP: Use stamp tape to secure the garden marker to the stamping block so it doesn’t move while stamping.
TIP: Write desired message directly onto the stamp guide and utilize the guideline marks for spacing.
Place stamp on garden marker, above the corresponding mark on the stamp guide. Lightly drag stamp towards the guide until the stamp catches the edge of the guide. Hold stamp flat and firmly in place by anchoring the side of your hand on workspace. Then strike the stamp once with medium force using Metal Stamping Hammer. Repeat to complete desired word. Remove stamp guide.
TIP: If the stamp has an ImpressArt logo, make sure it is facing you so that the impression is stamped in the correct direction.
TIP: Slightly tilt the stamp towards you while dragging the stamp towards the guide. Make sure you hold the stamp flat and firmly in place before striking the stamp.
