Well they run about 33 bucks shipped.
Which works out to 10 to draw you something up.
20 bucks to etch it
and about 3 bucks to ship it.
If you do your own art work...take 10 off
I tried to do this on a budget based plan so anyone that wanted one could afford it. Most others I seen started at 75 or so and way up and they are probably worth that. I tried to recreate them as they were minus the big hydraulic press they were stamped out of. But a lot of the older bikes pre war the badges were usually trashed so I try to recreate them as best I can.
Heres a Western Flyer badge I did for a friend that the edges were worn off of. Not exactly perfect but close...but theres a lot of things that be reproduced or first time. It just seemed like something that needed to be done at a more cost friendly price for everyone.
But right now they are done mainly in brass but can also be done in copper...and I hope to be doing small plating in a zinc for the mild chrome look....but thats still up in the air.
But its about a 4 to 6 hour process.
hope this help answer your question....and nice to meet you also.
