Metal Letter Stamps

Ideal for low volume applications, metal letter stamps offer users a couple of options like sharp facelow stress full (round) character, and low stress dot character. These options allow users to select the style of stamp that best fits their application.

For some applications, visibility is an important factor, so metal letter stamps also come in a variety of character sizes, most commonly 3/32”, 1/8”, 5/32", 3/16”, 1/4”, and 3/8.”

The Advantages of Steel

advantages of using steel stampsSteel is an ideal construction material for stamps because it is highly durable. Stamps, by nature, must withstand repeated striking while creating a clear impression on the material being marked. Steel holds up to the repeated impact and pressure of stamping very well and provides users with a long service life.

The quality of the mark itself is another advantage of steel stamps. When properly used, metal stamps create very clear, crisp, deep marks. Since the marks are clear and the surface is permanently marked, metal stamps are often used to mark parts in industrial settings.

Steel is also a cost-effective material, allowing users to commission custom stamps in low quantities more economically.
