I received the steel stamp kit that CSN Stores sent for me to review the other night and couldn't wait to try it out. I ripped open the packaging and found a very heavy duty metal box containing the set of letters and numbers. Before I got started I did a search for steel stamping tutorials and found a really good site, beaducation.com. I suggest that you check it out if you are interested in steel stamping.
I got out my stamps, a hammer and a washer and went to town. The steel stamps are very sturdy and the perfect size to handle. I do wish that there was a beveled edge for your thumb to rest, but other than that, I have no complaints.
CSN Stores was great. The shipping was fast (ordered the 12th and arrived on the 18th) and customer service was friendly. I recieved email updates throughout the process.
So what did I make? Washer necklaces for my daughter and younger sister:
I can't wait to try it out on other things. I am looking around for blank charms so that I can make more necklaces, keychains... the skys the limit and I'm ready to dive in!
Bottom line: CSN Stores was great to deal with and have a great selection with good prices. I recommend the stamp set for anyone looking to get into metal stamping!
Disclosure: I received this complimentary stamp set from CSN Stores in order to post this review. No payment was received for this blog post.
