Rotate stamping block so it’s positioned in a diamond shape. Place bracelet blank horizontally on stamping block. Secure bracelet stamp guide in the center of the bracelet blank. Use the guide marks to evenly space out letters and align stamp impressions.
TIP: Use stamp tape to secure the blank 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.
TIP: For 1/4” bracelets, make sure the top thin blue horizontal line that runs through the guide marks matches up with the bottom edge of the bracelet blank. For 3/8” bracelets, match up the middle, blue side mark on the guide with the bottom edge of the bracelet blank. For 5/8” bracelets, match up the bottom, blue side mark on the guide with the bottom edge of the bracelet blank.

TIP: If the stamp has an ImpressArt logo, make sure it is facing you so that the impression is stamped in the correct direction.
