Stamping letters into clay/salt dough

Fellow crafters, I am planning to make salt dough gift tags/decorations and am looking to buy a decent set of Alphabet stamps to use. I am looking for ones that have each individual letter on a metal peg that you simply press into the clay. Ideally I would like to have lower case AND upper case but appreciate I might have to buy two sets for that.

Looking on ebay/Amazon I can see a variety of sets most of which can be used to stamp into metal too. The prices vary wildly. Anyone got a set of these that they can recommend? Just to clarify I don't want rubber stamps to print onto the salt dough I actually want to impress into the surface.

Thanks WholeLottaRosie those tags are lovely. I've seen lots on pinterest too and am probably going to go the air-drying clay route and/or fimo. Whenever I do saltdough they always come out a bit puffed up and biscuitty-looking!

I suppose I don't have to get metal stamps do I? I am doing a jewellery course and we have been doing stamping in copper so I grew rather fond of the heavier-duty metal ones. I'll go and have a browse and look at the rubberstamp option.

(Can I just clarify that the website you linked to above was just for illustration and NOT you?!)

If you want your writing to be small, go for old lead type/font (used to be used in printing industry).
