[BKARTS] hot stamping

    This is a question to the group about hot stamping.  Almost every
set of fonts I have purchased--- mainly on EBAY---  do a great job of
hot stamping.  I purchased a set of 14 pt Roman type, however, that
deform when stamping, even though I maintain a stamping temperature of
270 degress or less.
    Are all types suitable for hot stamping?  If not, does anyone know
the reason?

 The Belgian surrealist painter Renee Magritte entered a cheese store in
Brussels to purchase a wheel of Swiss cheese.  The owner pulled a wheel
from the front window, but Magritte said he preferred the one on the
back counter.
 ?But they are identical,? the owner protested.
 ?No,? Magritte insisted.  ?This one?s been stared at.?
