Please include in the notes to seller box at checkout:
-The coordinates exactly as you would like them stamped
-Your font choice for the coordinates (see the Numbers font chart above)
-The initials you'd like stamped on the opposite side & font for the initials (from the chart above)
-Whether you want the coordinates on the front, or back (initials will go on the opposite side, so if you choose coordinates on the back, initials will go on the front, and vice versa.)
*Note that the flat part is the front, the back has a slight curve at the end*
If you'd like to customize this beyond the options we've described, please contact us to let us know what you have in mind.
Our process is very different from traditional engraving, which carves a light groove into the metal. Stamping is a more forceful technique, where each individual letter, number and symbol is stamped by hand, one at a time with a hammer and steel stamp. Because our products are not machine-made, reasonable variations are to be expected and contribute to the uniqueness and hand finished quality of each piece.

**Regarding our metals**
-Aluminum is our favorite material for rings and bracelets. It won't turn your skin green, won't oxidize or tarnish, and it loves water. Plus it's so lightweight, you might even forget you're wearing it!
-Copper and Brass will both naturally oxidize as well as react with moisture to turn skin green.
-Nickel silver will not oxidize, however it will react with moisture to turn skin green.
-Sterling silver will naturally oxidize over time.
-Sterling Silver, Brass and Copper can all be polished with any jewelry polishing cloth to restore the beautiful original shine.
