Hey VB, nice to hear from you. I hope business is good :cheers:

There a bunch of places that will laser cut stuff from flat stock for you now. It's becoming a big industry for small orders.

Here's a Canadian place that specializes in brass...

Somewhere along here there was a link to this place from a 3D maker's forum, I can look some more later this weekend, out tonite...

3d can be done with an EDM machine. 15 years ago I watched an EDM cut a 1" cube of stainless into a block that had the number 1 on one side morph into the number 2 on the back side. Quite impressive.

well I guess I'm looking for something a little more 2d then that.

I'm looking to have my logo machined into a brass plate, with the logo raised, background relieved.
if it looks good, to be used as a plug for casting multiples of them.

got the logo almost all done

we're considering brass circles etched with the logo. kinda like a coin, but without so much sculpting.

anyone think they can help?
