Steel handstamps, type and dies are used for impact marking and are one of the simplest forms of marking. Clear, deep and permanent marks can be made into metal, plastic, wood and other materials either using a hand held hammer or a wide range of machinery such as a percussion press or fly press.

Made from hardened and tempered tool steel, these stamps are supplied in standard sets of 27 pieces (A-Z) and 10 pieces (0-9) and are presented in a specially designed plastic box.
Available from 1mm to 12.5mm character size.

Wood Handstamps / Joiner's Stamps
Used for marking furniture, turned wood components, musical instruments, violin bridges, etc. these stamps are cut at a steeper angle than those used for marking metals so that they cut into the wood rather than crush it and produce a clear mark.
Steel Type
Steel type is used to indent a mark into metal, plastic or other material. Individual pieces are held in either a hand holder or machine holder. The individual pieces can be changed with ease. As the whole mark is made in one blow it is neater and faster than using individual handstamps. Standard sets of 0-9, A-Z and fount sets are available from 1mm-10mm.
Wedge type, logotypes and special type pieces can be quoted upon receipt of your specification.
