Make your mark! Give your work a professional touch with the best custom electric branding iron in the world. The branding head is fully machined from a solid bar of aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, not cast or molded. At well over 1/2" thick, it's heavier and tougher than any other brand on the market. We also offer a solid brass head for continuous heavy use. The stainless steel handle is topped by a comfortable hardwood grip.
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS (Outside of North America): Yes, our electric irons will work for you, provided you have an appropriate voltage converter! Our irons are designed to operate on 110-120V, either AC or DC. The plug is a standard 3-pronged US plug (NEMA 15-5). If you use a step-down voltage converter, please choose one that is fully grounded so that the built-in safety features of the iron are not circumvented.
SIZE AND PRICING:
One flat rate for designs up to 3in² (e.g. 3" x 1", 1.75" x 1.75", etc). Yes, we can make *much* larger brands, just contact us for a quote! Price includes branding head and stainless steel handle with hardwood grip.
Our brands are primarily designed to be used on wood. They can certainly be used on leather and soft materials, such as food, as well. Leather and other soft materials requires that your plate be cut with a deep relief, which is an upcharge. Please keep that in mind when sending an inquiry or placing your order.
HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR DESIGN:
We encourage all of our clients to contact us PRIOR to placing an order. This gives us a chance to determine how well your design will brand at your desired size, as well as get you a quote. Remember, this is a completely custom piece created to fit your needs. For design files, we ask that they are black on white, vector based or high res (at least 600+dpi) saved as one of these preferred formats: ai, psd, pdf, eps or jpg. In addition to your design, you'll need to include the size (length, width, area, or some combination of those) of the iron you want, as well as any other information you'd like to add, including the type(s) of material you'll be branding. Design and info can be sent in an Etsy convo OR emailed to info [!at] gearheartindustry.com.
Note: Branding irons can make very sharp, detailed images if used properly. If we feel your logo might not burn properly because of certain elements (small script fonts or very little whitespace, for instance), we'll let you know, and we can make sure that the end result is something you'll be happy with. As a general rule, script fonts need to be at least 1/4" or larger to burn properly.
