Anyone know where to get custom metal or metallic looking labels for cabinet makers?

RicKing,

Go to a print shop and ask them about gold foil printing. It is not cheap, since you have to make a die for stamping, but they use real metal foil for the stamping.

I did that for my business cards and letterhead. And I could have basically anything made with my logo stamped on it.

I think the die cost me about $160. But you can use it for basically anything.

Make sure you go to a printer, not Kinkos or the like. And if you are interested, ask them if the stamp is a die or a foil(pressed metal) stamp. The foil stamp is only good for a few hundred runs. It is much less expensive, but will cost you in the long run if you ever want to make anything else with the stamp.

In lieu of such labels, I've opted for a custom-made burning tool that has my name on it.  It looks great, is inexpensive to use... but they cost a fair amount of money to purchase initially.  I have had mine for over 20 years now, and still use it to this day.

No minimum order but shipping from England should be considered.  I will order some when I can come up with a nice design.

Without more information on what you want them to look like, it's hard to tell if this will help.  But, trophy shops make one-off metal labels all the time, and at a reasonable price.

My goal is for my work to outlast me.  Expect my joinery to get simpler as time goes by.
