What kind of hammer should I use when hand stamping?

This is a very common question we get. Below are a few factors that will help determine the proper hammer size

  1. The kind of material being marked.
  2. The amount of information being marked.
  3. Skill level of the person hand stamping.
  4. Hitting the stamp square with the characters perpendicular to the marking surface.

The more information being marked or harder the material, a heavier hammer should be used.

More times than not a 3 lb mini sledge will work the best.
