Our Custom Stamps For Clay allow you to personalize and brand your METAL CLAY, CERAMIC & POTTERY creations with your name, logo, or symbol. Our unique process creates high detail, crisp and deep impressions you will find nowhere else.
To get started.
Upload a graphic (Upload file button) or have us make one for you by checking "Graphic Design" before adding to cart. You then "Add to cart" along with selecting any other options you want like a duplicate stamp or contouring. Once purchased we will email you a 3D digital impression proof. Once we get your proof approval we process, cut and ship your stamp.

What kind of artwork should you upload?
A PDF or JPG in 600 dpi or better would be perfect! This can be in the form of a quality photo of your signature or camera ready art. We are pretty flexible and in most cases will clean up artwork free of charge when possible.

No problem. We have a highly talented graphic designer that will create one for you. Not only will you have a professional looking stamp, it will be optimized for stamping clay. Not all graphics are created equal when it comes to creating good impressions in clay. You can select this service by checking “Layout and Graphic Design” option before adding to cart. You get 1 design and 1 revision for cost. Simply add what you are looking for or have in mind in the “Special Notes” box also before adding to cart. Please be descriptive as possible including pictures (you can send after order in email) or examples if you have so we can create exactly what you are looking for.All graphic proofs must be approved or disapproved within 3 days of reciept via email.

We ship stamps within 7 days of proof approval. Most cases within few days. Our proofs usually go out within the business day you order so please check your spam/junk folder if you do not get proofs from us within 24hrs. Graphic assistance adds up to 5 days to processing. We also have rush order option available that you can choose before adding to cart. This option gets your stamp shipped with 1 business day of proof approval.
What release to use when making impression?
For Metal Clay:
CoolSlip or olive oil is a great release agent
For Pottery and Ceramics:
Cornstarch powder or Mold Soap is popular as a release
How do I clean my stamp and care for my stamp?
Soak in soap and water and brush with soft toothbrush. Store it somewhere you won't lose it and it will last years. We have stamps that are made in this material that are going on 10 years now that work just like new. The two biggest reasons we make replacement stamps is they get lost or the dog eats it.
Tip: Always try to support your piece from behind when stamping. Depending on the design and firmness of clay this may or may not be necessary but is always good practice. If you find when stamping parts of impression are incomplete or uneven, especially the center, then this is the issue 99.9% of time.
