Large Brass Type Sets Create Memorable Impressions

Gabriel Hargett, Oowee Products Founder, needed some to add some large monogramming to his personalized items and he knew just who to call to get the custom brass type sets manufactured.

Durable Technologies worked with Gabriel to create a custom set of large typeface brass type that was both rugged enough to mark tough leather products and precise enough to leave the type of mark Oowee Products customers are accustomed to seeing.

ooweeOowee Products needed both 3/4” and1-1/4” character type sizes for this project. Both were made with extra engraving depth for stamping leather beverage holders, custom keychains, beverage sleeves, luggage tags, and other custom-made items.

These brass alphabet sets are much larger than your standard type sets made by most other manufacturers.

"Chris and the team at Durable Technologies have always been great to work with. He figured out a way to get the price where we could afford it while still making sure to get the quality right. He is very responsive and was patient to make sure we got this done right. We always have a great experience working with the team at Durable Technologies," says Mr. Hargett.

"The Durable Technologies custom brass type makes our lives so much easier because we can count on a great mark every time. People love to be able to customize their purchases and we love the way the brass type makes us look good!" states Mr. Hargett.

This is not the first time Gabriel shared his success story on our website. Here is a link to the last one he did in 2016 after purchasing custom hand stamps from Durable Technologies.
