This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in March of 2018. Working with characters measured in mere millimeters to spell out names and messages on copper, brass, or other materials takes a special kind of talent — not to mention patience. But if you've a knack for wielding a tiny hammer to create custom jewelry or ID tags, you'll find these metal stamping kits quite useful. You might even find them lucrative, too, if you choose to sell your creations. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 11, 2019:

Just like a leather working kit, a metal stamping kit is an excellent way to try out a new hobby or expand your collection of arts and crafts tools. For those who are just starting out, the Romazone Jewelry, RMP Calligraphic Uppercase, or RMP Handwritten might be a good way to go. They aren't cheap, exactly, but they offer plenty of value for the cost. Note that the RMP Handwritten is a lowercase set, and the font feels quite informal, so it's perhaps not for "fancier" designs (although we recognize that this is rather subjective). For those who want to give metal stamping a try, but who don't have lavish funds available, we added the Horizon Group STMT DIY. It's a craft kit that teens or adults can enjoy — but it has small pieces, so you'll need to keep it away from young children.

Finally, we elected to keep the Coral Cactus set, even though some of the letters are meant to be used interchangeably (the W is the M, and so on). This could be problematic for those who are strict about fonts. Also, the logo on the side of each is not designed for orienting the stamp; you'll want to pay careful attention regarding placement.
