Branding, Custom Typography
Challenge: A Cleveland machining company, Stamp Yours, asked us to help distinguish their brand from national competitors. They specialize in precision jewelry stamps. In addition to traditional branding, they needed to emboss their brand on all finished products, so the logo had to work at miniature sizes for the sides of their smallest stamps.
Solution: We learned from the client that stamps work best as thin lines. This led us to develop a custom type and monogram solution where the outline of each stamp is a hairline but gives the impression of extra text weight. The final brand colors reflect the precious metals jewelers use—gold, silver, pewter, and stainless steel. Patterns were based on the typography brand elements we developed.
