I understand trial and error but I'd like some opinions too. It would seem the small surface area won't require as much force to get the desired depth/detail, correct? I only ask because I DO NOT want the letter/number 'bottoming' out, like the hilt of a sword that's been pushed clear through.  Too much chance of stray marking outside the stamp. Thanks.

I have, be sure it’s firm on a solid surface, and make sure it’s one solid strike as a double strike on 1/16 can become a mess...my .02

Thanks, I was thinking the same thing. Definitely a single strike situation.

The 1/16 are nice and small.  I’m not sure what you use for your hammer, but you might back off to a lighter model, if the over-stamp marks have you nervous.  I keep four different weight hammers on the wall and each serves its purpose.  
Are you swinging a Baby Sledge or Single Jack?   If you are going to be doing a lot of stamping in the future, I would recommend giving the Stanley CompoCast Dead Blow Ball Peen hammer a serious look.  It was a game changer for me and I’ve been swinging a hammer for one reason or another for 30+ years.  You can buy the Stanley in four or five weights and if your putter head or wedge is secured, Dbl hits almost become a thing of the past.   IMHO, the only guy who gets away with the Dbl-Hits is Scotty and I still have not figured that out, 😉.  
Don’t be nervous on the 1/16” stamps.  You’ll do better than you expect.  If you wanna good workout for your eye-hand coordination, give the 1/32” a shot.  I have to wear my danged readers or I can’t even see what letters I am leaving behind, LOL.  
Have fun while your learning and always post pix.  Guys like to see the “whoopsies” just as much as the perfect successes.

A technique that's helped me with the 1/16" --- Give a solid single strike, then angle the stamp to strike out the separate corners of the stamp with soft and careful strikes. It helps to get some of the mushroom effect without bottoming out the stamp.

Yes, that is the hammer and a decent weight.  I had the advantage of swinging a 24 oz Vaughn framing hammer for 26 years, so using a single-jack for me was not a necessity.  We used to joke on the jobsite, "It's not the weight, it's all about headspeed."  LOL!  Swing it hard, you might hit something........sound familiar?

Send your putter to Lamont and have him take care of it for you!  He did fantastic work for me on a putter using 1/16 stamps!!

Sorry for being absent on this thread, but I've had my go around with these now and they are easy peasy, even multiple strikes per impression easy. 1/4" and larger are harder for me now!!
