To stamp:
This stamp is entirely made of solid metal, unlike the usual rubber stamps that has a soft sponge in between. To achieve an even print and ensure a crisp stamp result, it is recommended to place a cushion, such as a stamp mat, beneath the stamp surface (paper).

In addition to that, this metal stamp can also be used as a wax seal.

To clean:
Repeatedly stamp it on tack.

To store:
Let the stamp face sit upright upon storage as the surface of it is delicate and fragile. It is also to ensure the top of it has sufficient space, this is to prevent further abrasion.
