Metal stamping: The next frontier for high-end desks
Metal stampings are the next frontier in the desktop desk furniture business.
The technology can be used for everything from custom-made leather desks to custom-built leather chairs, and metal stamping kits have become so popular that they’re being used to craft desktop desks as well.
This year, the metal stampings market will grow by 30 percent, according to the International Metal Markers Association, which represents stamping companies.
“I’m always excited when I see companies using the technology for their desktop desk products,” said Brian Siegel, the group’s vice president for research and analytics.
“They’re also really finding out what they can do with it, and how much they can save.”
Siegel said metal stampers are making a big difference for desk furniture makers, including some of the most popular brands in the business.
He said the most common use for metal stamped desk furniture is for desktops and laptops.
“It’s something that people want, but they also want something that’s going to last for years,” he said.
The biggest demand for metal stamps is for laptops and tablets, said Paul Stoner, the chief executive of Stoner & Associates, a furniture and accessory company.
The company manufactures a variety of desktop desk sets, including desk chairs, desk tables and laptop desktops, as well as leather and wood chairs and desktops.
“If you look at our sales in the last two years, we have a lot of people looking for this product, so that’s why we’ve had so much interest in it,” Stoner said.
Siegel pointed out that a typical metal stamp is typically used for a single desk set.
The desk sets that are used for laptops tend to be quite large and have multiple legs.
The designs of desk chairs also vary.
But metal stamp makers can create a unique look for any type of desktop, and it can be an effective way to create a custom desk.
“We’ve been seeing a lot more customers looking for that type of desk, so they are more willing to spend the money for it,” he added.
For example, one company that uses metal stamp designs to create chairs and tables, Woodcraft Design, makes a chair called the K2, which is a metal stamp design that can be found in laptops and desktop computers.
The chairs come in two versions: a black and a black leather version.
Both versions can be personalized with a logo and an eyelet, but the leather version is more common.
“A lot of times, they will use the black and the leather as a logo,” Siegel said.
“But the leather is what they call the ‘golden calf’ design, which basically is a gold finish on a dark blue background.”
Woodcraft’s leather chairs are sold at $1,300 and up.
“You can also get the brown leather version, which you can also customize,” Slinger said.
“You could just put a logo on it,” Sacher said.
He added that he and his wife, Jessica, are both avid metal stamp users and have created a collection of furniture sets based on the designs they create.
The design of a desktop chair is based on a pattern, called the “pattern-making pattern,” Sauer said.
It takes about six hours to complete.
Once it’s completed, it will be stamped and sold for $1 to $2,000.
The first metal stamp that Siegel and Slinger created was for a desk chair made out of a wood stamp, which was about $100.
“We had the idea that we’d like to create something that would last forever,” Singer said.
The pattern is then turned into a wood mold and put in a mold of the chair to be stamped, which takes about two hours to do.
The wood stamp is then used to create the chair’s design.
The process is then repeated several times, making it possible for the design to be engraved onto the chair, which adds up to about $1 million.
“It takes the design and then you’re essentially turning it into a metal,” Sanger said.
Woodcraft sells the chairs for $600 each.
Seller, a woodworker who has a master’s degree in industrial design and woodworking, has been using metal stamp products for nearly five years.
The metal stamp has been used for furniture in his studio since 2008, when he started using it to create wooden tables for his children.
“There are times when I need something that lasts forever, and I don’t have that option,” Seller said.
He said his office has two metal stamp kits in stock, but he does not have a number for how many he has, and he has never seen anyone use them.
“My experience with metal stamp companies is they’re not as good as the big guys.
They’re really hard to find, and they have so many different designs,” he noted.
The process of creating the chair design is similar to
