    like print in actual brass? I’m not super in the loop with’s metal printing these days (I’ve worked a lot on the plastic side) but there is no such thing as a home metal printer. They are all 6-figure price industrial machines.

    IIRC you can’t print brass directly. You print a wax model and then use that to do lost wax casting.

    it looks like shapeways offers brass services. I bet you’ll have better luck with them or another 3d printing service than on here since you’re looking for something very specialized.

    You might be better off getting someone to laser cut the brass for you.

    Edit:

    Curious... Because I don't know. Why brass for branding?

    Double edit:

    Wait... Are we talking branding as in marketing, or branding as in burning?
