Aluminium Metal Stamping Blanks and why they are a great choice!

Posted by Caley Griffin on 6th Apr 2023

Aluminium metal stamping blanks are a popular choice for handmade jewellery, as they offer a number of benefits over other materials.

First and foremost, aluminium is lightweight and durable. This makes it an ideal choice for jewellery that will be worn daily, as it won't weigh down the wearer or easily bend or break. Additionally, aluminium is hypoallergenic and won't tarnish, making it a great option for those with sensitive skin or who want to avoid the maintenance of other metals.

Another benefit of aluminium metal stamping blanks is their versatility. They can be stamped, embossed, or engraved with a variety of designs, making them perfect for personalized jewellery or for creating a unique look. They can also be painted, anodized or patinated for added colour and texture.

If you are new to Metal Stamping we recommend starting with Aluminium blanks to get the hang of it. We have Grade B packs of blanks to get you started. These are great for learning spacing and practising your hand stamping technique.

When working with aluminium metal stamping blanks for jewellery, it's important to use the right tools and techniques. A good quality metal stamping set and a steel block are required to stamp designs into the aluminium. It's also important to use a stamping enamel ink or paint pens to prevent smudging and ensure a clear impression.

Aluminium metal stamping blanks are also budget-friendly, making them a great choice for those just starting out in jewellery making or those who want to create a larger quantity of pieces without spending a lot of money.
