Good stamping tools include letter and design stamps, hammers, hole punches and disc cutters. A steel stamping block is also required to produce stamped designs.
Chasing, ball pein or nylon hammers are stamping necessities. Purchase the chasing hammer first to use with your letter and design stamps. Use a hole punch with your metal blanks to create holes that link the stamped pieces together with jump rings.
Stamping kits are available for beginners. Most kits include letter and number stamps, a steel block and a hammer. As of 2015, beginner stamping kits range in price from about $50 to $60.
