Any guidance is welcome.

I have a Kiln.  I'm not awesome with it but I muddle through (Delphi EZ-Pro).  I ordered a kit from Cool Tools to do the bronze firing.  I've done fine silver PMC before.
I am wanting to make christmas ornaments that have thumbprints and some stamped letters.  I stamp on metal discs all the time but haven't stamped on PMC before.
Also..
How many firings can you use the carbon for?
Stamp when clay is malleable or after firing?
Any special tips on bronze?

I have only used the silver PMC3 (which is fired with a torch) so I'm not much help with the kiln or the bronze.  But I have stamped on the PMC before.  I stamped while it was still clay using a rubber stamp lubricated with olive oil and it looks and works great.  I also like metal clay academy for tutorial, tip, tricks, ect and they have a page for bronze clay. http://www.metalclayacademy.com/metal-clay-resources/metal-clay-web-page-tutorials/bronze-clay-information-and-tutorials-on-web-pages.html
