I just bought a stamp you heat with a hot plate or torch and quite happy with it. I have stamped 2 projects with no problems.The pic shows the 3 first attemps on a scap, since then no problem. I think the electric ones would be better but kinda pricey

LOML has an electric branding iron for flatwork - and we have developed a signature logo for use with the laser on our turnings. On flat lasered work, we laser our logo on the back or bottom.

We make self-stick veneer logos for several furniture manufacturers on our laser---they are selling like hotcakes.

I have found the "secret" to signing with a burner tool is to use a small tip and then get one of those magnifying lenses on an extension arm to watch your "writing". With it nice and blown up it's possible to be neat and legible.

Ok, I'm sure this will get a laugh or three. I have three different company names/logos I put on the pool cues I make. The high end ones I engrave with a CNC or laser and my truly custom, one off stuff I engrave and initial with a sharpie. But the ones I sell under the Graphiti name brand I put "Temporary Tattoos" on them, then put the finish over the Tattoo. I know, It sounds nuts but it allowed me to produce a very sharp and Professional looking logo that only takes a few seconds to apply. Because the finish soaks into the Tattoo it's as tough as the finish. The only down side is to make them cost effective you have to order ALOT of them. When I got them I ordered 10,000 of them, I think I paid 2 1/2 cents per tattoo when I got them, It's been a few years. As I remember they cost about $300 after setup cost and shipping.

Wink

I use one of those vibrating engraver thingies that is used to engrave on metal, very low cost and good for signing on wood.

Several years ago I read it somewhere on the internet too.....guess I should have asked permission back then, because now I can't remember who posted it!

I've got a couple of brands for my work; company logo, signatures, etc. Doesn't hurt that I work for a company that makes branding irons!

Nuttin' fancy...

Done when I was trying to number bowls.
Gave up on that!

Signing your work

I do mostly writing instruments and it kind of hard to find a place to put my mark on them. So I came up with the idea to place it inside by using my P-Touch printer attaching to the refill or ink filler. So far its working out great.

Inside Signing of your work piece

Most of my work is Pen Turning and there is no way to sign a pen Gracefully,so I finally came up with an Idea to use my P-Touch label printer to make a small slim label to use inside the pen. For my Fountain Pens I place the label on the ink filler or cartridge, and for the Rollerball and ball point pens I place it on the refill. even on the Slimline refills it works fine.

I got one of those branding irons years ago, never really liked it. Haven't used it in a long time. Now I just sign and date most pieces with a Sharpie.

You can buy decal kits from hobby stores and RC plane stores. That way you can maker your own decals pretty inexpensively. I have tried it for other uses but don't see why it wouldn't work for a signature.
I put my name, the date, and species on most work so a decal or stamp won't work for me.
