    There are loads of good ready made stamps around, but I'm not sure any of them will be small enough for what you need - other than the just rite ones at 6pt. The area you've got to work with is really pretty small (I don't know how long the words are!)

    You can buy photopolymer plates from most of the PMC supply places I believe, but will need a UV light to cure them. Alternatively, you could try the imagepac system - the most basic one is not expensive:

    Photocentric Online Shop

    With either of these, it's worth filling the plate, even if just with images you might use in the future.

    Should have said, you can use metal punch alphabets too, they come as small as 1mm

    Cooksons 999 ASZ and 999 HAF. You can't press too hard with them, but they're nicely dual purpose.

    Oooh good point George
    If you use the metal stamps make sure you spray them with coolslip or oil them
    (don't want them going rusty)
