Topic tags/keywords: question

Anyone have an idea of where you can buy furniture badges that have a company logo on it ? I have looked but can only find made in china!! I have toyed with the thought of just using a branding tool. Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks.

They are out there but they cost a bundle. I have a branding iron with my logo on it. Works okay for an electric.

Google “custom medallion coins” as one option. The cost can be quite reasonable each in you would like a thousand of them. When I looked, I think the lowest cost I found was about $2-3 each for a hundred. I ended up getting laser work on birch veneer.

There are multiple artists on Etsy that will charge $10 to give you a quote based on your design. You can then send them your logo and requested dimensions, as well as whether you want electric or manual iron, and they will give you a final price quote. Should you decide to proceed, the rest is pretty straight-forward.

Most cities have at least one graphics design and metal sign mfg company that can make metal machine/furniture badges. Phoenix has 20+. Look for metal sign company in Google maps. Nothing against the big guys like Inland, but the local folks tend to have lower tooling costs, and are happy to make small quantities. Have bought solvent resistant silk screened 2×3” aluminum name plates for less than a dollar each in small quantities, after buying tooling. YMMV

Laser engravers are flexible and cheap in smaller sizes.

Local trophy shops can engrave on anodized aluminum name plates.

Regarding a different topic, I tried visiting your website and got redirected to a suspicious page asking me to click some button to update my browser. Might want to investigate before it chases away potential customers.
