About Metal Stamping
Metal stamping is a craft involving each individual letter or design being individually stamped by hand onto your chosen metal. By it’s very nature, there will be slight imperfections & will not be totally uniform. This can include varying degrees of depth, alignment & unpredictable spacing between them. The back of the pieces will also show very slight marks due to metal displacement.
The process is very different from traditional engraving, which carves a light groove into the metal. Stamping is a more forceful technique, where each individual letter, number & symbol is stamped by hand, one at a time with a hammer & steel stamp. This is much deeper than engraving & due to the forceful nature marks will show through to the other side.
Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony, bismuth & sometimes, less commonly today, lead. Silver is also sometimes used. Copper & antimony act as hardeners while lead is common in the lower grades of pewter, which have a bluish tint.
