Woodcraft will make you a custom branding iron. Also, anyone near you that does laser ingraving could make you a medallion out of various different materials.

I’ve seen the brass medallions advertised in that back of FWW. They are British made and pricey. I’ve looked at branding irons on line recently and plan to get an electric one

Highland Woodworking has them: http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/signaturemedallionsfromtheshopofblank.aspx

I have looked at this, but never tried them. Not cheap, either…

Try a trophy shop. They will have a broad selection of styles and do the engraving on site. Just drill a few holes for mounting and you’re golden. They are used to one off items and price accordingly but for some volume you may get a break.

As another possibility, I have heard of other folks who obtained laser cut/etched medallions from woodworkers or companies who have that kind of equipment by contacting their local woodworking guilds or associations. You might even check with the folks at your local woodworking store (Rockler, Woodcraft, etc.) to see if they know of any local folks who do that kind of work. I would think that would be a project that could be handled by the small bench top units that are becoming popular.
