Sam, I use a branding iron but also use rubber stamps
for some of my customers own logos. Once oiled it also looks
great and for $5 including artwork you cant go wrong. It also
gives you a chance to try different designs.
Alternately if you look on woodgears he has a pantograph that
you could use a dremel on and engrave a block of brass. Great thing
about this way is you do the large artwork in plywood then when the
pantograph reduces it you have a very neat looking design.
He also has a font generator that can do mirror image.
Would like to see how you go with it.
