Tedious Things in the Lives of Crafters #7: Off-center metal stamping

…because even when the metal charms you’re working with are reflective, that’s no guarantee your words are going to look like a laser engraving.

I’m no longer married to the idea that metal-stamped letters HAVE to be evenly spaced and aligned perfectly (and I’ve even justified odd spacing to myself as funky, fun and bearing the unique totem of handmade items).

But having to squish letters together just so they’ll fit on the damned charm is frustrating.
