This listing is for a custom-cut cookie stamp between a one inch and two-and-a-quarter inches in diameter.
I can convert nearly any graphic you create into a durable, food-safe cookie stamp to make a detailed impression in suitable cookie dough. If cared for properly, one of these stamps should last indefinitely. A magnetic handle is included if desired on the shallow-cut stamps (1/16 inch stamping depth). Both types of stamp, with and without the handle, are dishwasher safe (see Seller's Note for temperature limits). In addition, deep-cut stamps (1/8 inch stamping depth) without handles are offered if you would like some extra leeway on fidelity to your artwork. Sizes between 1.0 and 2.25 inches are accepted, and the cost for any stamp is the same. If you have a design that requires a stamp larger than 2.25 inches, feel free to contact me and I can create a custom stamp that suits your needs.
For normal orders, you can order up to three stamps at a time. They can be duplicates of the same design, or each one can be a completely different size and design.
Design Note: The cutter diameter limits small dot and internal edge radii to approximately 0.25mm. This also applies to fine, closely-packed lines: if they are closer than 0.5mm together, the cutter will probably remove them regardless of the design. In addition, very fine text may not turn out in your cookies. Please keep this in mind when preparing your design. In addition, please note that only certain kinds of cookie dough are suitable for stamping: most store-bought dough will spread out when baked, preventing virtually all of the stamped details from translating over into the finished cookies. If requested, I can provide a sample recipe.
ORDERING: When you place your order, please send your design via email or through Etsy. You will receive two proofs: the first is a digital proof to confirm that your artwork is correct after formatting it for cutting (if you would like to save time in the process, you can export SVG files to PDFs for easy uploading to Etsy). The second is an image of a test branding into your choice of wood or leather, which will be included with the shipped stamp.
SELLER'S NOTE: If you decide to order a stamp with a magnetic handle, please be aware that permanent magnets like these will lose their magnetism if brought to 176°F/80°C. Conventional dishwashers are designed to operate between 120°F and 150°F or 49°C and 66°C, but they sometimes run up to 175°F/79.5°C. If you want to check that your dishwasher will not ruin the magnets, running a candy thermometer through the wash and checking it at a break between operating cycles can confirm if your dishwasher is in fact safe for the magnets.
