Looking to have a custom branding iron made so that I can stamp a bunch of cutting boards I’ve been making. Who would you guys say makes the best one, or gives the most options as far as the artwork/imagery/fonts/etc.?

My icon pic is my brand, it’s on Cherry in that pic. I got it from Terry Desilets that link is his website. I got one for myself, and my Wife at the same time, both are electrics, and after having played with a, you heat it, brand I feel the electrics offer a much better brand for not much more $$$$.

Terry sent both of us back and forth several pics of what our art would look like, and didn’t make until we were satisfied. It would be quicker if you had your own art, then you would only need to agree on scale. Ours was a painless process, actually it was fun.

My Wife’s is just her name, she brands her baskets with it, so font, and scale were her only choices. On mine I wanted a tree, didn’t have one in mind. Terry sent me hundreds of tree pics, and I narrowed it down. Click on my Home page, and the pic is a lot clearer.

My wife bought me one for Christmas last year. I love it as well (Although, I have nothing else to compare it to…). It heats up quick enough, burns a consistent brand… They worked with me to get my logo. They were promtp to respond and did a great job!

Buy a laser engraver for the same $$ and be able to change logo’s, add custom dates & dedications.

I’m a very S=L-O-W maker…and so I designed a simple logo using my initials and I burn it in w/ a hand held tool called a Creative Versa-Tool - since my first & last initials are straight lines, it’s easy, and I kind of like the fact that each one comes out a little different. I do also use it to mark the year an item is made – and these shapes aren’t linear.

Since I take pride in making cutting boards, furniture, etc., making my own mark works for me.
