Try Ten Second Studio.
TENseconds Studio

I met the owner some years ago on a stamping / craft cruise to Alaska, she was teaching one of the classes, she is wonderful and her products are great. Not a fly-by-night company, order with confidence.

Although I have purchased metal in sheets and shapes, I also use soda and beer cans. I cut the top and bottom off, cut down a side and give them a quick wash. I stamp, die cut and add color with ink (permanent and alcohol) and paint/glaze.

There are thin sheets like ten seconds studio metal. You can also buy aluminum tape that HVAC companies use on heating/cooling ducts.

If you're looking for something more substantial, there are lots of places where you can purchase sheets of metal that come in varying sizes, thicknesses, and types of metals.

I have purchased sheet metal from Michaels in their jewelry section and from Beaducation who has a large and varied section here:

HTH.

I was also going to suggest the metal duct tape, which you can buy at Walmart. An advantage is that it's self-adhesive. It's very easy to work with, and I've gotten some really great effects using my embossing folders and impressions plates on it. It's great used as an accent on masculine cards.

Not sure if you are looking for copper or aluminum since I searched for both. The cheapest I have found for aluminum, colored one side in copper is from Amazon and the other resource is from hobbylinc.com in Canada who has any metal in any thickness you'd need. I like doing altered boxes in metal and often use the aluminum but also love burning copper so hobbylinc is a good source for that. Hope that helps!

this is for a young lady who would like to make jewelry with it. She tried washers from the hardware store but couldn't get a good imprint. I told her I would look for a good resource for blanks. thanks

I've bought blank shapes at Hobby Lobby, they have some from a couple different companies and lots of different shapes and sizes.

I have ordered pewter discs from Bopper Metal Supply and was very happy with the purchase.

I've never heard of this site, but this looks like a fun little kit:

Both firemountainbeads.com and artbeads.com offer a large selection, excellent prices, a variety of finishes, good customer service and reasonable shipping. I order from both, even from Canada, quite regularly. There's a new gadget, I forget what it's called, that helps your stamp stay straight and vertical. You'd find it with other stamping tools. I Can't wait to get one. Of course if you are handy or know someone who is, you could make one. It's just a wooden block with a small corner removed that your stamp sits into.

That metal isn't nearly soft enough and she will ruin her stamps! Tell her to be careful about trying metals not designed for stamping. Maybe use the 'q'?

Soldier melt is a good option too. It is soft and can withstand an imprint...and shine/dull. Just melt into formed sand (use wet sand and stamp or impress something into it). It's fun and like magic. She'll need supervision, goggles, some gloves and a soldier iron to play it safe.
