The charm of hand stamping is its random organic look, not precise or machine made. However, there are mistakes that can take you from organic to ruined, so here are a few tips to help.
Here are some examples of what not to do:
Holding the stamp the wrong way can result in upside down images. Pay special attention to the 6 and 9 stamp.
Not holding the stamp firm enough can cause the stamp to move.
Not holding the stamp straight can cause incomplete images.
Hitting the stamp too soft can cause incomplete images.
Hitting the stamp too hard can dent the tag along with the impression.
Hitting the stamp twice will leave a shadow impression.
