    Le Prevo offer a service where for £60 (£45 + £5p&p + VAT) you can get a 4"x5" plate etched for embossing your own leatherwork. This works out at £3 a square inch.

    I suggest that if we group together we could get this plate ordered with multiple designs on it. Of course, it would have to be cut up & posted but for under a fiver you could have a custom stamp made

    So, for 20 sq.in. we need 20 buyers. Of course, if you want multiple inches that's no problem

    Copy & paste & add your name. Once we're up to 20 names we'll start sorting things out.

    Filling up nicely! I'd better think of a design I want made. For those who have signed up, please make sure you have a design drawn that you can email to me in a sufficiently high resolution. Once they're all gathered in, I'll make a composite & send it off to them (unless there is a different company someone can recommend)?

    I managed to get on one of these on BB and very pleased with the result. Very crisp lines and a good deep impression if you want to take a clamp to it. (I just stood on this one.) Now epoxied to a block of hardwood. Replaces the one I got from a guy on here a while ago made from a resin type substance...? This is the new one, about 20mm square,

    and the older one, about 25mm

    If I didn't have one already I'd jump on this!

    cheers,

    Alan

    Have you checked out Metallic Elephant? They make foils for the printing presses. I think they might be even more affordable. I'll email them to get a price list

    I was going to mention them before but I didn't want to step on no toes.
