    Howdy folks...looking to have a custom printed or engraved 3"x5" amp badge made up.
    Any suggestions on where to source something like this? I'm just looking for one metal or plastic plate really.

    Thanks in advance.

    Etsy, that’s where artists sell their wares, and take custom orders.

    Juicy Amps does laser engraving. Trophy shops are another good resource, too.

    Check with a local screenprinting shop. Might be a little pricey for a small quantity.

    any trophy or plack shop. A color laser printer, a generic metal badge and some clear coat laquer and you can do it yourself.

    its not difficult. I made custom bottle openers and lighters using a color laser printer and some clear tape.

    I bought some from this guy on the 'bay last year, really nice job! He did some 3D printed logos, and a metal plate for my 5E3.

    He's actually retired now, which is too bad, as that's who I had do all my stuff for a while. I switched to Juicy and have been happy.

    All excellent choices. Thank you kindly.

    Basically looking to have the horse skeleton in my avatar turned into an amp badge.

    I've made a few contacts already.

    Cheers!

    Same as BPN Laser? They folded up at the same time.

    That part I'm not sure - never heard of BPN laser.

    Same here. I sent her my own artwork and had a couple of different colors done. I also did not have her put the screw/nail holes in because she could only do one size, and it was larger than I wanted. The color is not a solid color like the vintage Fender name plates that were silk screened; it is a transparent color on a metal plate (dye transfer I believe it is called.) But it still looks good.

    I'll take a picture when I get home...

    Here are two pics of the name plate I had made. It looks more opaque in the picture, but it is actually a transparent brown color over the aluminum plate. And it is called "dye sublimation printing."
