Stamping on Plated Metals?

Stamping on Plated Metals? - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

I´m planning to start my own business on Etsy, I have bought the metal stamps, now I´m on the stage of deciding what metal to start with.

I have been doing some research and aluminium, stainless steel should be affordable to start with, however I would also like to offer a bit of higher quality items.

I´m indecisive between gold / silver plated metals and gold filled / sterling silver.

Do you have any experience stamping on plated metals? does the plated coat comes off when using metal stamps? As this plated metals would be more affordable to start with, and maybe in the future I can upgrade to gold filled/sterling silver.

Any advise would be highly appreciated! 🙂

Thanks!
