Steps to stamp on a metal charm

  • Put a small piece of tape on the stamping block to hold the circle in place

  • Tap the top of it with a lightweight hammer about 3 times
  • Repeat for each letter.

How to stamp letters onto metal for a necklace charm

It takes a little bit of practice to see how much force to use on the hammer.  If you hit it too hard, it can warp the metal.  If you don't hit it hard enough, you won't be able to see the letter.  If you want your letters to be in a line, you can put a piece of washi tape on the circle as a guide.
