    BADGE?

    Did this idea die a death??

    Just I have a suggestion, that may kick it into life.

    Hand-tooling leather is a SLOW business....you dont want to know how SLOW, its bordering on painful
    Making enough badges would be a life sentence, IF done by hand-tooling

    BUT

    Why not have the logo embossed with a hot-foil press?
    That way, once the logo is made, it can be used to heat emboss the design/logo INTO the leather surface.

    Other options would be silver or gold foil....or solid "plastic" colours - like black, brown, red, yellow, etc.

    It'd be quite quick to produce these this way - and the same design could be used on thicker items for key-rings, coasters, buy in a small batch of diaries, etc.

    May help with the BCUK funds

    Jon

    p.s. I have a lovely hot-foil press :)

    It would be easier to just get a zinc stamp made up from LePrevo and just stamp a bunch up. That is what I did to make up some SotP ones.

    Same thing - 'cept I can get the zinc stamp cheaper than that at another supplier

    The zinc stamp fits into the hot foil press...then when heated makes it the metalic foil leave contact with the plastic roll its on

    OR just heated & in the press, used to "burn" a logo into the leather surface

    ...was just an idea

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread but did this ever happen?

    I vaguely remember seeing some leather BCUK badges at the Moot a few years ago and wished I'd bought one.

    I'm planning to make a Capote and would really like to incorporate a BCUK badge along with my SOTP one to balance things up a tad.

    Made these for another member a while back:

    and I've got a couple of spares lying around. (One positive, one negative). If it's OK with all concerned I could part with them for a donation to BCUK.

    I would rather like a badge or two made from these stamps - what sort of donation or alternatively - how much for a badge - with a donation to BCUK as goodwill?

    I think we are still all a bit unclear of the BCUK position on this and everyone is very worried about upsetting anyone else :)

    Someone I think has already having these after he talked to me about it yesterday.

    We have some leather badges left and we can get more easily. I'll look at this in more details in the next few days.

    Kerne, how big are those? My SOTP badge is about 3" square with the Quentin logo in the middle so if they are about the same that would be good.

    Darn.........and it wasn't me even though I was the one asking:banghead:
    Must check the site more often.

    Definitely interested if there are more to be made, would a square piece of leather be possible with the logo in the middle?:puppy_dog

    Sorry, Bootstrap, someone PM'd me straight away. I think he is going to start making BCUK leather badges which will raise money for the site. Watch this space...

    BTW they are about 30mm diameter.
