I have always used a black sharpie. Name of my company, signature and date written under the top of the table. I have a few designers wanting to take my furniture to more commercial customers and feel I need to upgrade to something more professional. I like the burned stamp look but just wanted some ideas from all of you. What do you do and where did you get it?

I started signing my projects with a pyrography pen. Many brands to choose from; I have the Optima I (on line purchase).

I have a wood burner and in hindsight I wish I would have bought a cnc laser unit.

This topic pops up every now and then… like this fairly recent one:
Branding/stamping wood projects?

I just print out the logo/design/whatever on a Laserjet printer and heat transfer it. Doesn’t commit you to just one or two patterns/sizes and can be customized/sized to anything you want.

I’m now using a laser engraver.

On larger pieces I use a branding iron I made a long time ago along with a sharpie.

Now I use a laser on smaller pieces that will fit in my little machine.

A laser engraver can be had for under $200. It can lase anything you can draw or get from the interwebs:
