Hello All,

Any ideas where I could get an enamel headbadge run made, looking like this:


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've never used them before, but try this

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. is nice, but her work is one off, I am looking for a production run.

Here is another one (a friend of mine). She made a batch at some point...

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.

Great, thank you.

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.
