Custom Branding Iron Examples

Artwork

Our branding irons are CNC machined from a solid block of brass using a very fine cutter. We can include almost any text or graphics that you would like on your branding iron but here are a few guidelines:

If you are unsure if your logo is suitable for branding, just email us a copy and we will let you know if we can make it, or recommend any changes that may be required.

A .pdf or .eps file is ideal or a high resolution jpg (3000 to 4000 pixels wide) will also work well. If you don't have any of these formats just send through what you have and we should be able to work from it.

Materials

As well as solid wood, a range of other materials can be branded. Some such as bamboo board and MDF will brand with very similar results to solid wood. Others such as plastic, leather and cork require a lower temperature to brand. This can be achieved with our traditional branding irons by simply not heating the brand for as long, while our electric branding irons require a dimmer controller to reduce the operating temperature. Our electric branding irons are also great for branding the white drinking coconuts that cocktails are served in for bars, resorts, weddings and corporate events. Below are a few examples of brands on different materials.

Traditional or Electric

We produce both electric branding irons and traditional branding irons. The electric branding irons use a soldering iron to generate the heat, whereas the traditional branding irons can be heated using a blowtorch or gas burner.

Both types of branding iron are precision machined from a solid brass block and both will produce the same impression. The electric branding irons are good where large numbers of parts are being branded at one time, as they stay hot without having to be returned to a flame. The traditional branding irons are cheaper than the electric ones and great for branding a few parts at a time.

We have several standard size branding irons, however we can create brands of any size.

We are also introducing several standard branding irons such as our number wheel branding irons. These have the digits 0 to 9 engraved around the circumference of a branding iron and are ideal for stamping serial numbers and date codes into wood and plastic.
