Impress Art Metal Lettering Stamps

Handwriting fonts are hot, and not just in the scrapbooking world. At the CHA Show in January, ImpressArt debuted two new fonts to add to their collection of Metal Lettering Stamps. Their two new whimsical handwritten style stamp sets in fonts called “Juniper” and “Lollipop” are evocative of current typography trends.

Each set of metal lettering stamps include 26 letters and 7 coordinating bonus stamps, and comes in lower or upper case versions that retail for around $60/set. The stamp sets are sold in stackable color coordinated plastic storage cases that have a slot for each stamp. This makes them secure, and easy to organize and use. The colored case makes it easy to quickly see which set of stamps you want to use.

Margot Potter demonstrated for me at CHA how easy these stamps are to use for jewelry making and multi-media Projects.  (Like Margot’s work? You can some of her projects on the ImpressArt website.)

All you need are the stamps, the special metal hammer, a steel stamping block, and a stamping blank to create a cute necklace or bracelet.  The metal stamping blanks come in a soft strike and medium strike version.

According to the ImpressArt website, the stamps can be used “on soft metals such as brass, copper, nickel silver, pewter, alkeme, aluminum, gold, and silver” as well as on “matt-board, clay, leather, glass, card stock, wax, wood, and fabrics”.

For people who want to craft with harder metals like stainless steel, the company also has a line of Premium metal stamps.

ImpressArt stamps can be used to impress a variety of metal to create fun projects like rings, pendants, bracelets, earring and more.  Most people think of these as metal stamps but the possibilities are endless when you learn that they can also be used on various mixed media surfaces too!
