I am interested in getting a very small custom stamp made with my initals. I have a stamp that is oval with my name, but many of the items I make are just too small for that size of stamp. Any suggestions on who makes such a thing? Thanks

When you say "branding tool" do you intend to get it hot and brand the leather? Or are you looking for a maker's mark stamp?

I don't have a stamp yet so I use my wood burning tool with a fine point tip and "sign" my things with that burning my initials or signature into the leather on the back side.
A teacher pointed at me with a ruler and said "At the end of this ruler is an idiot." I got detention when I asked "Which end?"

Thank you Sylvia. I hadn't thought about burning my initials in, but it may be exactly what I do until I get an actual stamp made. I did run across a company yesterday called Columbia Marking Tool in Michigan. They make custom stamps of many sizes, even very small (1/4"). I think I will look into that at some point. Will try the burning tool in the mean time.

You are welcome! I am glad I could help a bit. While you have the wood burning tool out... try burning a design on some leather... just make sure it's not chrome tanned stuff. You can actually remove material and it ends up looking carved. :) Just char.... then scrape with your modeling tool. repeat if necessary. Katsass, a member here, makes his own brands from coat hangers and he heats them with a torch. If you can bend a wire into a logo shape that might work too.

Another thing you can try is jeweler's stamps, they can come really small. But a set of letters can run you a $50 or so.

If you're interested in a Maker's Mark style stamp (to imprint wet leather, not a hot branding type), I can make that for you. contact me at info@lasergiftcreations.com if interested. thanks, brenda

If you only want your initials I would suggest getting a few letters of letterpress print type. Clamp them togeather, heat them in the over to 300 degrees and push them on the damp leather for a half second, done.
