Will hand stamped text be perfectly straight and centered?

Oh, sweetheart, no. Hand stamped jewelry is, by nature, a little bit flawed, and we love that. Each letter or number is stamped, one at a time, and lined up only by sight. We have years of stamping experience, and our stamping is seriously second to none, but perfection is not our goal with hand stamped jewelry, for one, because it's unobtainable, and two, because if perfection is what you're going for, let's talk about engraved jewelry instead, mmmkay? We've got you, boo!
