Headbadges

Hello All,

Any ideas where I could get an enamel headbadge run made, looking like this:
http://www.trackosaurusrex.com/pblog...uHeadbadge.png

?

I can't seem to find anything on the interweb, and I'm sure that someone here has jumped through this hoop before. Looking to get a run of 50-100 made.

Thanks all,

I have a list somewhere, I need to organize them. Just chiming in to note that this is probably going to cost at least $100, and probably more like $250-500

A lot of people go with e-machine shop. I was also thinking of one of the rapid prototyping places that does sintered stainless steel

Im not really interested in just busting out a stainless headbadge, laser cut style.

I am particularly looking for the enamel, old school looking deal, like the link. Headbadges.com is nice, but her work is one off, I am looking for a production run.

I'll look up my link, there are a batch of people that specialize in bicycle headbadges. I think these guys also will do the job. I'll try to find some more links, not at the right computer now.

Sand casting really isn't too hard to do. Do a little research, you could probably get a small crucible and just melt brass with an oa torch and a rosebud tip.

I'm sure you're right, but I really am asking for a specific source. Not suggestions.
