Brand your leather products with confidence.

Our branding heads are 3/4" thick for better heat retention. This reduces the need to reheat if you're making multiple marks and makes the branding process more efficient.

These custom branding irons are available with fire-heated handles, however the branding heads are interchangeable. You can attach different branding heads to your fire-heated handle. Or you can attach the branding head of your choice to an electric heating tool. This heating tool is useful if your goal is to make multiple consistent marks.

Project your best image with a Branding Irons Unlimited product.

Our experienced graphic designers will optimize your artwork to ensure clear, readable marks on the leather you are marking. These specialists ensure that details on your design, down to line thickness, will show clearly on your mark. When your artwork is ready, our CNC manufacturing process will translate your design into a branding iron with unmatched clarity. The engraving depth and bevel will be tailored to your intended branding material. We take these measures to ensure your branding head leaves quality marks. This is a high priority for us--because your leather brand is more than a label; it's a statement.

Tips for branding leather:

  • It takes various degrees of heat to brand different kinds of leather. Soft leather and suede typically require less heat in comparison to thick, firm leather.
  • Depending on the type of leather and amount of heat/dwell time, your branded mark may resemble a branded mark made on wood or an impression made with a metal stamp.
  • Branded marks on textured leather “iron out” the texture, usually leaving a smooth mark.
  • Using an electric heating tool in combination with a temperature control unit will make your task easier. We offer electric heating tools compatible with 120V and 220V-240V outlets.
  • For high volume branding, using a drill press mounted electric heating tool increases accuracy and efficiency.
