Nameplates


#1

Hi, Gang,

I love this forum! A week or two back there was a discussion on
nameplates and another on photoetching, and I didn’t quite understand the
nameplate idea because I was thinking of the kind you put on your desk at
an office. I just got a call from a lady looking for a nameplate for her
daughter. What she wants is a 14k pendant with her daughters name on it.
Boy do I feel stupid. I did remember the thread though and I want to thank
all of you for your timely discussion on the subjects. I especially like
Wendy’s use of a rubber stamp for a model. I will probably try it out.
Thanks.

HI Sharon, I’ve created many hundreds of name plates in many
formats (pierced, solid back, etc…) If I can be of any help,
please don’t hesitate to ask. I’ve got the equipment to
photo-etch, engrave, etc. as well as CorelDRAW and a small
graphics studio…

Thanks, Jeffrey,

I have only talked to the customer over the phone, so I’m not sure what
she has in mind for style, but I will definately keep you in mind,
especially if it’s pierced. Piercing has never been my forte.

I’ll keep you posted.

Hi there! Could you share with us your experience with Corel draw-(version
etc.)I would like to get a graphics program that is really usable . Thanks,
Sonja

Though I am an aspiring jeweler by night, by day I am a printer.
I have found that Corel Photopaint 6 is really the most versatile
of any of the programs I have worked with.

Wendy (or anyone else who knows!),

The caster I use has never burnt out a rubber stamp before but
is interested in trying. Are there any special techniques that
they need to know (temperature, etc) or does it work pretty much
the same as wax?

BTW, for anyone interested, my local printer is charging $7 to
print out a reverse image for me and he said the die portion of
the stamp will run less than $10.

What type of graphics do want to produce? (2-d 3-d etc…)

Sharon,
I think the guy who casts for me burnt it out like he does the
blue wax I usually give him. I’ll ask him for you
