My first batch of engraved brass plates for my work; Patrick has arrived!

This was made by Vidi at Makers Marks

I had a hard time with him, and getting the product took months, but the product is good. I paid about $71 for 10 of these.

Very nice looking. Hope the prices go down with more of a bulk order.

I like it. Bold, yet understated. Very classy looking, at least to me. As Monte said, hope the prices will go down for you.

I understand that they are engraved brass but my goodness, $7.10 each!!! I hope you are selling the items they will go on for hundreds of dollars. Also 10 won’t go very far. I would continue to look for a more cost effective alternative. Remember that some of the biggest craftsmen, think Tiffany’s, only put a small, easy to make mark on their products.

I use a rubber stamp on the bottom / back of my products. People give me follow ups because of it. Not fancy but it works. And it is cheap.

I haven’t had a drink in years, but when you said “maker’s mark” my mind went straight here:

Odd, but his website doesn’t come up anymore, “server not found”.

I think he was redoing his website?

Weird, but I got an order today from somebody in England, with a duplicate order of the one I made originally. No, I didn’t see any charges for it on my bank account.

The return address is :

St. Eliot Associates
Unit 26D, The Factory
Aynam Rd, Kendal
LA9 7DE
