Custom Hand Stamps

Posted by Matt Martin

Custom hand stamps, as an affordable and long-lasting customization tool, have a long history of allowing makers from a huge variety of industries to make their mark.

Over the years, we’ve helped many companies, artisans, and makers customize hand stamps so that they can make the mark they want in the place they want to make it.

We thought it might be nice to show off some of these talented people and their amazing work.

First, some background. Durable Technologies' custom hand stamps are specifically engineered for identifying industrial products.

Every die blank is machined to the user's specifications. Durable’s custom hand stamps satisfy any user requirement for direct part identification. 

What can be customized?

  • Sizes of the shank, characters, or graphic
  • Design and graphics style
  • Character number, font, and size
