  • Brass Nameplates for models?

    I posted this question on another forum and did not get much of a response so I thought I would give you guys a try. Can anyone direct me to a vendor/craftsman that makes name plates for our models? These name plates could be made from etched brass plate, laser cut plastic or brass, or cast resin... it doesn't matter. I am in the process of finishing up Captain Nemo's Rifle and would like to add a plaque of some kind describing it etc. I know that these things exist but dont know where to start. Any suggestions?

    If you have issues finding laser options, I can put together a 3D version and print it out on my printer for you. If you have ideas, shoot me an email with what your vision looks like and I'll see what I can come up with.

      Have you thought about going to a trophy supply shop. They do brass plates of all kinds and sizes.

        the average Trophy shop typically has a hashey pantograph engraver...Just Google Laser etched brass plaques...many for under $15.

          Thanks everyone for your responses. I have several projects that are nearing completion that will need some form of plaque. Bob, your offer for a 3D printed nameplate would probably be perfect for the DeBoers Seaview once it is finished which is hopefully soon. I will contact you then. Thanks again for the great suggestions.
