Hi guys, wondering how many of you who use SW to make jewellery factor in your own makers marks or even hallmarks ( eg: 925 for s/silver) into your designs?

I have been reading up on the minimum detail on the various materials and it seems that 0.3mm is the smallest in s/silver and FUD.
This doesnt sound like much, but even after resizing a 925 stamp so the width of each line is 0.3, its still too large to fit on the inside of a small ring shank for instance.
It does mention however that FUD CAN have detail as little as 0.1mm. If so, this would make a huge difference inthe overall size of the mark...but how accurate would it be? Would this also apply for silver printing?

Keen to hear your thoughts/ experiences on this subject...
