When you think of branding irons, your first thoughts are probably about cattle and barbecues. For a long time, ranchers and grill masters have made up the majority of those who use branding irons and with good reason. Branding cattle and other livestock is a practical means of ensuring the safety and organization of a herd. Barbecue enthusiasts love to proudly mark their meticulously prepared steaks. More recently, however, woodworkers have joined in on the branding fun. For those who work in wood shops, “signing” woodwork with a branding iron will let everyone know whose skilled hands are responsible for creating each and every handcrafted masterpiece.
With that said, advances in production equipment technology brought about new capabilities, far beyond the traditional methods. Having the most sophisticated computerized equipment, along with a skilled team is key to our capabilities and the secret of a quality branding iron for any application. A custom branding iron featuring your logo, design or artwork is the perfect way to permanently brand your mark on a variety of materials and surfaces. If you can think of it, you can probably brand it. The possibilities are virtually endless!
One unique use for a branding iron is to mark art canvasses. Artists, put a special twist on how you would ordinarily sign your art by taking your personal trademark or logo and permanently searing it into your canvas with precision and intensity. The same applies to other products made of canvas and other materials similar in durability and texture like denim.
Another area that has begun to get into the trend of using branding irons is the food and beverage industry. Use a stainless steel food branding iron (with a compatible sealed electric heating tool) to brand burger buns, coconuts, and other foods. You can even use a multi-purpose brass branding iron on leather goods such as menu covers and bill holders, to name a few. Bartenders, use a branding iron to add a special touch to cocktail garnishes such as citrus peels. Your creative branding will make your establishment the toast of the town.
For those in the equipment rental industry, did you know that you can brand your company information into rubber, certain plastics and other materials, in addition to branding any wooden items you may have?
School officials, brand sports balls, computers and other equipment as proof of ownership to deter theft. Did you know that Public Works Departments also brand their equipment, including traffic cones, for identification purposes?
It’s time to get creative! Brand your logo on canvas or straw hats. Brand the underside of your skateboard with your logo or your own designs. Yoga studio owners brand your logo on your mats and, if you are an avid yogi who owns your own meditative yoga mat, then brand it with your name or initials.
Tire supplies worldwide brand their tires with various marks so, if you have any products made of rubber, go ahead and brand them with permanent marks that will benefit you!
