Impress
- Usually used as
"After the burglary the man took a blade and made a small impression on the wall to inform the police that this was one of his many strikes. "
it's more of a formal word.

Imprint
- usually is just used as a noun on its own and usually refers to someone's body or the body of something ( of some Thing: Key imprint for molding a new one. ) (
of some one: finger print, palm print, etc..)

( Slightly irrelevant, but.. notice how imprint and impress are interchangable, but the way I used them is quite specific. The first example gives more insight into the attitude of the culprit, just as is the usual context of the word "impress" and that it is usually used in " first impression."
However " Imprint" is more neutral and shows the difference in attitudes between the police and the culprit as an officer would feel more trivial about it than the culprit would. ( this would be more effectively used in dialogue as narration isn't as effective concerning telling of a characters feelings or attitudes.) The only reason why leaving a identifiable mark or impression behind matters is because the culprit makes it matter as they become more useful and important to the detective who seeks to find that person. Gives them the rush of the sense of control.

Stamp:
The most casual of the bunch.
Can be used to comment on something that's more of a petty display as compared to the other two.
" I swatted the hand of the officer and hastily stamped the paper with my finger, it seems they were content enough with me having my way so they filed the smudged paper and quickly threw me in the cell."
