**STAINLESS STEEL / FLATWARE STAMPING / & MACHINE STAMPING
The only letter sets recommended specifically for Stainless Steel and Flatware or 'Silverware' stamping is made by Impressart. The Fonts are the ImpressArt PREMIUM NEWSPRINT and PREMIUM BRIDGETTE sets. These sets are ROC 62 and are the most reasonably priced Stainless Steel stamping tools.
Can I use my stamp set on stainless? The gauge of the stainless steel and whether or not it has been tempered [hardened] will determine if it can be stamped with something less than ROC 62.
Flatware and some blanks are tempered [hardened]. You will know when your blanks are harder than your stamps if you get 'bounce back', the stamp will not make an impression, you get 'ghosting' [double strike] or you have to use a lot of force to make an impression. If you have to use a lot of force, you will ruin your stamps.
The 18G stainless steel blanks being sold really 'sound' great, but 18G stainless is really too hard for the majority of the metal design stamps on the market. They may cut the metal, but over time I've been informed the stamps will begin to mushroom out losing definition of design = ruined stamps.
So the answer this question it really depends upon the gauge /temper of the stainless as to whether or not ROC 53-56 stamps in the marketplace will cut it* To avoid stamping problems and ruining your stamps we recommend staying away from 18G stainless blanks and Silverware / Flatware [tempered] because these products are too hard.
Brand tool hardness [ROC]:
*EUROTOOL stamps are ROC 55-56
*METAL COMPLEX and BEADSMITH stamps are ROC 52-53
*ROC 52 - 56 are only hard enough to stamp thin stainless steel 22-24G and thin untempered stainless plate.
IMPRESSART basic and regular stamps are about ROC 55-56 - please bare in mind, using them on stainless voids the warranty on these stamps. Please be mindful that we cannot 'recommend' and are not 'advising' this brand be used on stainless due to the limitations under the warranty.
IMPRESSART BASIC SETS vs IA REGULAR LETTER SETS:
The difference between the Basic sets and the other impressart sets:
1 - ImpressArt the bonus letters in the new cases ARE nickel plated. BASIC letter sets are NOT nickel plated, can and will show surface rust, occasionally will arrive with surface rust. However, this is easily removed using sandpaper, sanding sponge, steel brush, steel wool or emory board - store in climate controlled area to help prevent sweating. As above, they are not returnable for rust, as this is why they are so 'inexpensive'.
2 - Regular sets include 6 Bonus design or punctuation stamps - the basic sets are the alphabet stamps with ampersand [upper] or question mark [lower] only.
3 - New Larger cases for Bonus sets - each letter / design stamp is separate and labeled, the basic sets are housed in a plain U-case. Note as the newer cases are much larger [and breakable] they require BOXING for shipment.
4 - NO mistakes - the shank of the 'Bonus' sets are Labeled with the design / letter and logo on the side to avoid mistakes - basic sets are Plain, Un-labeled
The ROC hardness of the stamps is the same.
STAMPING MACHINES / METAL SHANK SIZES
The brand of letter sets that we carry that fit into stamping machines is our ImpressArt 2.5 and 3mm size letters and the ImpressArt 3mm size design stamps.
The BLACK Eurotool Elite 5mm design stamps are 1/4" square.
The 2 and 3mm Metal Complex, Eurotool and Beadsmith LETTER set stamps do NOT fit - they are all the same diameter across these brands - the 2mm sets are 1mm smaller than 1/4", the 3mm sets are 1mm larger than 1/4".
All 4mm and 6mm design stamps and letter sets are TOO LARGE. To use these stamps in your jewelry the stamps must be hand held to stamped. If you are using a machine - stamp your words and then go back to stamp the larger design stamps by hand OR Hand stamp the designs - then go back and stamp the words / names etc afterward with your machine.
SEED BEAD WEIGHT VS BEAD COUNT
NO SHORT SHIPPING - EVER! We use a Scientific Laboratory grade scale to ensure you receive what you have paid for.
Why are loose seed beads sold by weight and not by the count?
Czech seed beads are a rocaille bead, created from long glass rods. The beads are not pressed or molded glass therefore they are not 'exactly uniform' in size. That is the reason they have been loved and used by Native Americans to create Circles and Mandalas as the wider and conversely, thinner, beads allow creation of perfect circles.
Metallic beads, metal vapor coated, silver, copper and brass lined beads weigh more per bead than the transparent glass or matte finished beads and some colors of glass have metals in them, such as the red, yellow and orange colors. Because there are thousands different sizes, colors and finishes of seed beads, it's just not possible to count or estimate the number of beads per 30-34 gram pack in each color and finish we offer for sale.
DYED and METALLIC BEADS - TIPS
KEEPING THE FINISH LIKE NEW ON METALLIC AND DYED SEED BEADS
*Coat your beads with clear acrylic spray paint before working with them. If you’re working with seed beads, one way to do this is to pour them into a plastic zip bag, spray a bit of paint into the bag, shake the bag to coat the beads, and pour them onto plastic sheeting to dry. (Please, only do this technique outside or in a well-ventilated area and promptly dispose of the plastic bag after you finish.
*Future clear acrylic floor wax is used by many artisans to strengthen the stitched thread in finished seed-bead work, but it also works well for protecting unstable beads. It works best to dip the finished work in a dish filled with the floor wax and then air-dry it on paper towels.
*You can use light coats of a product like Renaissance Wax, DesignaSeal, Mod Podge, or Diamond Glaze to seal larger beads with unstable finishes. Keep in mind that these sealers may change the look of your beads by creating a high gloss.
OOPS!! ...... RE - VARIATIONS LISTING ERRORS
Please contact us so we can correct the listing prior to purchase.
Explanation - Due to recent changes within the listings manager, some of our listings with variations were altered dropping the variations listing selections. Most of the affected listings have been corrected. We have recently found where this has occurred again.
Please be note any listing wherein the variations regarding size or quantity if the variations selections have dropped off the listing the smaller size or *lowest quantity is the default - ie the smaller size item; the least expensive single item or the lowest quantity of the listed item.
If a purchase has been made fwe will contact the customer requesting confirmation and approval for the default item. However if no response is received the default item will be shipped. Alternatively, we may cancel the order and notify the customer the listing has been corrected so they can repurchase.
*Examples: listings were there are options to purchase for example 5-25 quantity of any item, the default price showing in the customers cart will be the lowest quantity of 5.
For listings were there are size variations for example size 4x5 or 5x6 the default size is the lower priced item, or the 4x5 sized item.
In listings where the item is seed beads in loose or hank form, the default is for LOOSE seed beads.
In listings were there were multiple choices of multiple items, such as, one letter set, 2 letter sets, or letter sets and numbers the lowest priced, single item is the default item which was charged for and thus purchased by the lower default pricing structure.
USPS PRICE INCREASE
USPS recently instituted Domestic and International price increases - the changes have been difficult to get a handle on. Although we have worked to adjust the prices for all merchandise, it has been a daunting task. If the shipping charges collected are insufficient we only have a few options available to us - we may cancel part of the order to comply with the shipping weight paid, cancel the entire order if it's not possible to ship at all, or we may contact you to request the shortage be sent to our account.
