The cost covers the wear and tear of the stamps and any potential breakage or harm to the stamps. You can opt to have the below copper provided at an additional cost to cover the copper blank costs and shipping or you can bring your own metal and fill it with stamp impressions to take home and saw out and use in your jewelry designs.
