Branding is possibly the most practical and economical way to permanently mark almost any material other than metal or glass. Fine furniture and other works of art are frequently branded to advertise a trademark, logo or manufacturer’s name or to “sign” or individualize a craftman’s work. Branding is also used to identify tools or equipment for personal or security purposes.
Materials suitable for branding include cork, chamois, leather, plastics, paper, rubber, wood, particle board and wallboard, even meat and cheese! Our branding irons have been used for branding barrels, batteries, boxes, brooms, cardboard cartons, crates, chairs, cork, electrotypes, ladders, lumber, milk crates, pallets, plastic parts, reels, rubber gloves, rugs, spools, utility poles, tires, tool handles, trucks, wooden furntiture, novelties and a myriad of other objects.
