LASER CUT 1/2" x 2" 22g Stainless Steel Blanks for Leather Bracelets
These blanks are perfect to rivet to leather bracelets. These have a slight residue from the film around the edges which comes off with a polishing cloth. There is slight dross on the back side around the edges which can be flicked-off with a finger nail. If you give your pieces a quick brushed finish with a sanding sponge after stamping it will easily come off then. They have very square corners - QUICK removal tip: How To video (3rd from bottom of page)
Using our very shiny stainless steel blanks will allow you to offer your customers products that are beautiful & very affordable. For many years luxury watchmakers have appreciated that stainless steel is an excellent choice for producing quality jewelry. It is hypo allergenic, does not rust, change color or tarnish. And because it is so durable, items crafted with it can be treasured for a lifetime.
1. Our blanks ship with an easy to peel vinyl film to protect the shiny side until you are ready to use them and are made in the USA.
2. If you are using GOOD QUALITY SHARP STAMPS, you only have to hit them slightly harder than you do for stamping silver, copper or brass
3. Stainless steel is a very strong durable metal and does not easily bend, which are very desirable qualities. However punch hole pliers & screw down punches will not work. The heavy duty punches I have listed are modified so the hole can be set to 1/16" from the blank edge (orig. only 1/4" min.) & the pin opening is coated to prevent marring the blank. Hole punching is quick & easy in stainless steel & whatever other metal you're using.
