I did this with my wedges. Here's a couple of thoughts. 1. Take the head off the shaft. 2. If you leave said shaft on the club, use someone that isnt scared and has a steady hand while holding the club. With the 58 my son would move it ever so slightly and now I have a blob instead of a skull and cross bones. Overall I'm somewhat satisfied.

I prefer to take the heads off- get a flat surface (bench, counter) I use a drill press vise, and use double-sided tape. It holds the stamp more securely and helps it from jumping on you. I learned the hard way. Look good tho!

Practice on a couple cheap heads before your gamer so it looks like a pro did it vs you in your garage after a 6 pack

Lol, yeah... I agree. Maybe I should have had a 6 pack.
I will say this, I got a skull and crossbones from Amazon and they just werent as sharp as the standard letter stamps I have.
I found that the double sided tape (for some reason) wasnt as tacky as I thought so I took a piece of duck tape and rolled it and put that on.

Overall I am happy with the result, just have to figure out what to do with the "blob" on the 58

Where did you get the letter stamps from?

It also helps if you put a strip of masking tape over where you are stamping the head. It helps you align the letters/symbols, and it will help hold the stamp in place when you're hitting it multiple times.

I'd also echo what others have said: place the head on a steel block/anvil/something harder than wood, use a vice/clamp if you can, double sided tape. Some stamps just aren't strong enough for stainless steel.

^^^All of this^^^

I take the shafts out and use double sided tape on the face and then mount it to the flat part of the anvil/vice. I also use a small piece of double sided tape where I want to put the stamping, helps the stamp stay in place. Also I will first take whatever stamps needed and press them into the tape so I have sort of a template of what it will look like(hopefully) and also where to put each stamp.

As some else said, take a old wedge first and practice doing different things.
