For Use With Food or Drink: Do NOT fill stamped impressions with enamel.

Note: *ImpressArt’s Signature Stamps are rated for Stainless Steel.*

Step 1

Place spoon on stamping block. Secure a straight or circle stamp guide on the head of the spoon. Use guide marks to evenly space out letters and align stamp impressions.

TIP: Use stamp tape to secure the stamp guide to the spoon so it doesn’t move while stamping.

TIP: Write desired message directly onto the stamp guide and utilize the guideline marks for spacing.

Step 2

While holding the handle of the spoon with one hand, use your other hand to place the stamp on the spoon above the corresponding mark on the stamp guide. Lightly drag stamp towards the guide until the stamp catches the edge of the guide. Balance the spoon in place by applying pressure to the stamp. Continue to hold stamp flat and firmly in place as you let go of the handle of the spoon. Then strike the stamp a couple of times with medium-hard force using the Metal Stamping Hammer. You can Tap & Tilt the stamp to make sure you get the entire impression. Repeat to complete the desired word. You will need to rotate your spoon around as you stamp so that the portion you are stamping is in direct contact with the stamping block.

NOTE: The surface of the utensil that you are stamping on must be in direct contact with the steel block to achieve a full impression.

NOTE: ImpressArt’s Signature Stamps are rated for stamping on Stainless Steel. Stainless Steel is a harder metal and will require a more forceful strike to achieve a full impression.

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.

NOTE: For lowercase letters g, j, p, q, y: Place bottom of the stamp on the thin horizontal blue line that runs through the guide marks.

Step 3

After stamping the first line, move the straight stamp guide down and repeat the technique to finish stamping any additional lines.

TIP: If stamp guide becomes unusable due to rips or markings, then use a new straight stamp guide to complete the project.

Step 4

For Decorative Use: Highlight impressions with Stamp Enamel. Wait 3-5 minutes and then wipe away excess from the surface of the spoon.

For Use With Food or Drink: Do NOT fill stamped impressions with enamel.
