New Metal Stamping Blanks!

We have new goodies online! Check out our terrific selection of beautiful altered-brass blanks in our stamping blanks brass category.

Nothing is quite comparable to the rustic look of altered-brass. The weathered appearance of each blank will make you feel like you are wearing your own little vintage treasure. These blanks have been oxidized, so keep in mind that if you tumble them or polish them a lot, you will lose that altered/oxidized look (as seen in the picture to the left). When stamping on these, and adding black to the impressions, we prefer to use ink. Make sure to polish the excess ink lightly off the blanks so that you don't remove all of the surface oxidation.

We are also excited to present our new bird and key stampable blanks! These were designed in- house and are exclusive to! Both shapes come in Gold Filled, Copper and of course Sterling Silver, in a variety of gauges.

Whether you try our new birds, keys or altered-brass blanks, we hope you will enjoy creating with them as much as we do.
