Where to buy custom stamps?

Does anyone know where I can order a custom stamp for marking leather with my logo? Tandy Leather used to offer this service for a reasonable price but no longer does so.

Mike,

I'm on a friend's computer and don't have access to my saved info, but two I can name off the top of my head are Harper Manufacturing, I believe it is, and Infinity Stamps.

There is also a company named "Buckeye engraving".


I think most guys end up spending $40-75 for a simple letter stamp. I heard of some that are $300. It all depends on the "art work".

Most guys get more than a few hundred stampings out of one on "mild" steel so the price per stamp in mininal.

Grey Ghost Graphics makes custom maker stamps. Dunno if they're any good, but found them through Robert Beard's website.

Someone else already mentioned Harper

Thanks for mentioning Grey Ghost Graphics, gandalf23. I'm still using a friend's computer and I couldn't recall the biz name off the top of my head. The owner, Jeff Mosby, is a fellow member of the IILG leather guild, and I've heard excellent things about his stamps. - Jim

I wonder how long delrin stamps last. Delrin is a relatively soft plastic.

marking stamps

I think these are great, can smack into damp leather, burn it in hard leather or display boxes. Cliff http://www.azwoodman.com/branding-irons.html

Another sheath maker directed me to Springfield Leather. I just received the custom leather stamp that I ordered and I am most impressed with the quality. You can't beat the price at $39.99 plus shipping. They can work from a .jpeg image of your artwork.
