Product Description

MEASURING CHARACTER SIZE OF A STEEL STAMP

The above illustration shows how to measure the character height of an engraved steel stamp. Actual character size is measured from the very top center point, to the very bottom center point, of the character.

Round face characters are also measured from the very top center point to the very bottom center point of character.

The best way to measure the character size of hand stamps you already have, is to push the stamp into a piece of paper resting on a hard surface and measure the letter or number impression on the paper.

Lower Case characters compliment Upper Case characters of the same font size. The illustration above shows the typical size relationship.

Letters like b, d, f, and h will be as tall as capitol sets of equal size, all others like a, c, and e will be smaller.
