Metal stamps come in all shapes and sizes and are easily customizable, which is why they are a popular marking solution for stainless steel.

Stainless steel marking requires the marking method to be tough enough to make a permanent and clear impression in the hard metal.

Often this leads to the use of larger marking systems (like an impact press package), but that isn’t always ideal for every application and budget.

For small run, low volume stainless steel marking, a metal stamp can be a good solution. This is especially true for any application that requires a custom mark to be made.

Metal stamps can be easily customizable with nearly any text, logo, or symbol and provide a long service life of clear marking.

Metal stamps also have the advantage of being easy to use. All you need to make a clear mark is a stable work surface, a metal stamp, and the right size hammer.

We always recommend using a hand stamp holder to ensure operator safety while using a hand stamp and hammer. You can learn more about proper hand stamp marking techniques here.
