Place stamping block on a hard, sturdy surface.
Secure blank to stamping block using tape or stamp guide to prevent blank from moving while stamping.
Use a stamp guide to evenly space out letters and align stamp impressions. Write desired message directly onto the stamp guide and utilize the guideline marks for spacing.
Hold stamp at a 90-degree angle on the stamping blank.
If the stamp has an ImpressArt® logo on the shank, make sure it is facing you so that the impression is stamped in the correct direction.
Lightly drag stamp towards the corresponding mark on the guide until the stamp catches the edge of the guide.
Hold the stamp flush and firmly in place by applying a little bit of pressure and anchoring the side of your hand on your workspace. Strike the stamp once with medium force using metal stamping hammer. Repeat to complete desired word, message, or quote. Remove stamp guide and tape.
