- Several impressions: The number of times the design is stamped into the metal will also affect the price. A single impression is the least expensive, while multiple impressions are more expensive.
- Finish: The types of finish applied to a stamping project will also affect the price. Polishing and anodizing are two options, with polishing being the least expensive and anodizing slightly more costly.
