Carvers or casters...
« on: Nov 05, 06, 10:25:07 am CST »

I'm in need of leather stamps done in the IBRSC and the IWG logos (as well as some other designs).  I'm curious if anyone could carve these logos (reversed, obviously) into wood substantial enough to pound with a mallet several hundred times or even cast the stamps from metal.  

I thought about buying the pins, but then the impression in the leather would be backwards.

Anyone?

Y'know... I didn't even think about that.

I'll have to zap an e-mail off to him.  He might even be able to sell me some metal casts.

Yes. You need the Lars-man's approval... and then you need camera ready art of the pin...

Stamps, depending on size, can run from $100-$400..

Thats bout what I see down here too.  Although I do have a guy who owns a laser cutter and he'll make a delrin stamp for bout $50.
Its not good for high usage, but its usable.

Ok... haven't spoken with Lars.  I also haven't gone ahead with my plan to produce any sporrans with the guild stamps.

I'll look into it later.

For now, I just need to get my biz to take off.
