The actual building of the bank is the property of the bank and the interior design of the building is supervised by the bank manager. The actual bank manager is responsible for approving or rejecting any design that has been presented for the unitranches. All proposed designs are first inspected by the bank manager and presented to him for approval. If the proposed design is approved then it is then presented to the company manufacturing the stamps.

The bank manager selects the raw materials used in the production of the stamps. The raw materials that are used are usually wood, metal and paper. The wood that is most often used is basswood. Other raw material used is walnut, which is the best hardwood that is available. Other woods such as pine and beech are also used but not as often as the basswood.
The design of the bank unitranches is usually very unique due to the wide range of choice of raw materials that are used. Most bank stamp companies only make a few hundred stamps each year. Therefore, if a design is wanted by a company it normally has to be approved by the bank manager before it can be produced.
The various designs of the bank are approved by the bank manager
If the design is accepted then this will usually lead to production. A certificate of authenticity is also issued by the bank with a photograph of the bank manager inspecting the stamps. Each bank has its own stamp design which has been approved by the managing director. Some of these designs can only be found in particular areas.
It is always best to discuss with your local bank manager what kind of stamps you would like to receive from them. They will have in store an outstanding range of stamp designs. Once you have chosen which bank to get your stamps from then you need to explain to the bank manager what you want. The bank manager will examine the available stamps with their eye and then make a decision as to what design you would like to receive from them.
There are a number of ways in which the bank can purchase the crestmark stamps for its customers. The first way in which the bank can acquire the stamps is to buy the stamps directly from the mint. This usually happens if the design that you want is not available at the current location where the stamps are being held. This option is usually a very slow process because it takes the bank for a period of time to prepare the mint purchase certificate so you should plan to visit the mint regularly during this period.
