Make a personalized gift with special, customized words for Dad. A new alternative to sterling silver, Alkemé™ stamping blanks make personalizing gifts easy and fun.

Made with a newly formulated, non-corrosive metal alloy, these metal discs allow for intricate, detailed stamping at just a light tap of a hammer. Plus, Alkemé™ stamping blanks are lead-, nickel and cadmium-free.  Just buff with a soft cloth, like you do with silver. It’s a great, affordable option to using sterling silver, and looks fantastic.

    1. We advise that when you punch holes in leather for rivet, always start with the smallest setting. If your rivet does not slip through, re-punch the hole with the next size. However, for this project, according to the hole punch we used (TL00043), it is the 2.4mm hole size.
