Using Large Stamps (Tilt & Tap)

Note: Use the Tilt & Tap technique to stamp 6mm and larger stamps, or stamps with more details.

Step 1

Hold stamp flush on blank.

While applying pressure to the stamp, strike once with medium force using metal stamping hammer.

Step 2

Then without lifting stamp, continue to strike while very slightly tilting the stamp in a circular motion to catch all sides of the design.

Before lifting up the stamp, strike stamp one more time in the center.

Note: Lifting stamp between strikes may result in double impressions.
