    Hey guys just received this custom made stamp of my logo to mark my sheaths. After shopping around most of the ones I found were over $100 usd plus shipping. This stamp is made from hard plastic and cost less than $40 cdn, including shipping!
    I am very impressed with it. It makes a very nice clean mark with lots of detail

    The stamp is just under 1" square
    Thanks for looking

    I actually found the company on etsy. They are kattleman Co. They were very helpful. I asked a ton of questions as I was leary about the plastic's durability but in the end the price was low enough that it wouldn't hurt to bad to try it and not have it work out.

    If you take care of it, no reason it won't last a long time I would think... Looks good! Nice and clean.

    Yeah. The guy I talked to told me that most will get over 500 impressions before it starts to deform. So unless I get really busy here it should last me for a few years.

    If any of you guys have a vector file of your logo's id like to try and use my 3d printer to print one off to see how it holds up as a stamp.

    How hard is the plastic from a 3d printer? The plastic used for this stamp is a high density acrylic. It seems very hard.

    Depends on which material you print with. Many types out there. I use PLA primarily because it doesn't give off a strong odor in the house. But I also have ABS plastic filament as well.

    The other upside to the PLA is you can cast it with liquid metal as well.

    I have a 3D solid cad file of mine. I've thought about trying 3D printing or even cancel machining it.

    For your logo I don't think a home 3d printer would get all that detail. More so simple designs.

    If you want to get it printed another good option is to check your local university libraries. Some public libraries have them and it's cheap.

    The Dal University here in Halifax has a printer and you send them the design. I'd be willing to look at it to see if it's something I could do up.
