  1. I found you via the Handcrafted Jewelry magazine and have a couple questions that hopefully you can answer.

    1. I’m trying to determine what size the letters are for each stamp. I’m confused by various sizes I see listed for stamps (2 mm, 3 mm, 1/8″, 5/64″ …) Is there a “real-size” chart available anywhere where I can compare?

    2. I’m not seeing prices listed on the John Bead site.

    3. Are your products available in stores or only for online purchase?

    4. I’m in the states (MA) … does that make a difference?

    Thanks so much for any info you can provide!

  2. Hi Barbara,

    Thank you very much for your questions. We don’t have an actual to scale chart. But that is a great idea to get together. We will work on doing to scale examples of the letters.

    To answer your other questions;

    2. We are a wholesale company and therefore do not display our prices. If you register as an authorized customers and have a business that relates to the trade, then you are able to see all our pricing as a customer. If you do not qualify as a wholesale customer, there are many retailers that sell our products !

    3. Yes products are available at retail stores. you can visit and see the recommended retailers there; BeadFX & Rainbow Minerals. If you email [email protected] we can give you a more direct retailer that is closer to you.

    4. We ship to the states, that’s no problem at all.

    If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to contact [email protected] !!
