500+ = 15% off and Free Shipping

Quantities are of the same type blanks - IE 500 1/4" x 6" cuffs blanks.

Please convo us if interested in larger than 500 orders, we can work on a mutually beneficial supply relationship.

•••Our Metals•••

We supply both 1100 and 5052 grades of aluminum here in our shop. We believe that both grades have their advantages for the crafter.

1100 aluminum is pure, food-grade aluminum. It is soft and stamps easily, so your impression can really stand out! Pure aluminum is safer for skin than other metals.

All 1100 products in our shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/GCSupplies/search?search_query=1100

5052 aluminum, on the other hand, is alloyed with magnesium to provide more strength and hardness without sacrificing too much stampability. This is great for narrow cuffs as it helps them hold their shape better than pure 1100 aluminum.

If you're used to stamping on 1100, you'll need to hit a tad bit harder (though not as hard as with...say... copper) to get the impression you want, but the results are worth it.

All 5052 products in our shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/GCSupplies/search?search_query=5052

If you have questions about these metals, just let us know. Both are great for hand stamping!

•••Our Shop•••

We are two geeks in love, building this business from the ground up. We cut, corner, tumble, and finish all of our 1100 and 5052 blanks here in our home. In addition to our handmade, polished and beautiful stamping blanks, we also offer quality stamps, tools, and specialty blanks - from ImpressArt, The Beadsmith, Euro Tool, and other great vendors.

If you have any questions about our items or want something custom, we answer convos during the day and even into the evening hours. We have experience hand stamping and even run our own stamping shop (see below for link), so we can help if you're having issues with your projects.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy browsing our shop!

About

From Geeky Beginnings Comes Metal Working and Stamping Supplies

Geekocity Creations began in March of 2014 when I opened my Etsy shop to sell handstamped metal jewelry and accessories. I started with simple geeky and pop culture bracelets and keychains, and it's grown from there!

My husband recently was laid off from his job in the oil field industry. While it's wonderful to have my oil field husband home now, finding a new job in this economy has been rough on him the last few months. We decided to expand my original business and branch into supplies, with the hope of one day the both of us can be fully self-employed.

Now I'm working with my husband to provide quality metal blanks and jewelry making supplies for other people who, like me, are looking for supplies for their creations. And thus, GC Supplies was created!

We are an official reseller of ImpressArt, The Beadsmith, and EuroTool tools and supplies, and we're always looking for other quality supplies to bring to our customers.

Most of our blanks, besides the more intricate shapes, are cut right here in our home. We cut, corner by hand, and tumble our blanks to bring you that handmade touch that will work great with your handstamping projects.

My completed handstamped geeky items can be found here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/GeekocityCreations
