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:
