  1. Start by choosing the leather you want to emboss. The leather should be smooth and flat to ensure that the embossing comes out crisp and clear. Hammering works best with vegetable tanned leather. If you work with chrome tanned leather, electric branding/embossing is recommended. 

  2. Prepare your stamp by attaching it to a hammering handle. The handle will help you apply the necessary pressure to create the embossed design.

  3. Dampen the leather with water. This will help soften the leather and make it more pliable, which will make it easier to stamp.

  4. Place the leather on a hard surface, such as a wooden cutting board or anvil.

  5. Position the stamp on the leather where you want to create the embossed design.

  6. Using the hammering handle, strike the stamp firmly and evenly, applying enough pressure to create a deep impression in the leather.

  7. Once you've finished stamping the design, allow the leather to dry completely.

  8. If desired, you can apply a leather finish or dye to enhance the appearance of the embossed design and protect the leather.

Overall, embossing leather with a custom stamp is a simple process that can add a personal touch to your leather projects. With a little practice and the right tools, you can create beautiful and unique embossed designs on all kinds of leather items.
