    The flag could be brushed aluminum while the rest could be black.
    I like the idea, I'll see if I can have it ready by November when I send stuff out for anodize.

    Any way you could do an Eagle, Globe, and Anchor (USMC) Emblem fit a 2011 factory OEM grill? That would be righteous!

    0_o... ?
    There is no November order, there's an October batch in which all emblems will be mailed in November if that's what you're referring to.

    Is there any popular logo you guys would like to see made?
    I'm not looking for one offs, the value to make one customized emblem would be very high.
    Looking something cool that most people would like to have on their vehicles

    When are you going to make another batch of the punisher skulls?
    And would you recommend large or small for a 2017 stock TRD OR grill?
    Your works looks amazing, I have to have one!!!
    I think I also heard something about a possible discount code? :spending::fingerscrossed:

    I'm sorry I missed your comment.
    There hasn't been that much demand for that type of logo but it has been on my mind for a while but I find it I have less time to produce more logos.

    I'll have more emblems available in about 3 weeks, they're being anodized right now.
    If you're using it on your front grille I recommend the large size Punisher emblem.
    The smaller one may look better as a hitch cover.

    PM me when ready and I can send you a coupon code.

    Model T emblems are out of stock.
    I'm currently brushing the ones I have and then I have to clear coat them.
    I'm running out of time as I'll be leaving for vacation soon.

    I'd like to see something like this in emblem form. Even better if it's embossed into a background Toyo oval that we can enamel paint yellow. [​IMG]

    The classic Metallica snake, love it!
    I've been to about 15 Metallica concerts already.
    The problem is making just one emblem would be pricey as heck.

    Imagine you hire a writer to write you a short kid's storybook, I'm sure he'll sit down and listen to the kind of story you want him to write.
    He has to gather his material, brainstorm and it will take him months perhaps to write your story.
    Paying him for the story is very expensive.
    Now imagine instead of having a custom story written you go to a book store and buy a similar book for $15.

    Similar story with machining, it is very expensive.
    It's not like getting an image and clicking PRINT, it is very time consuming and making just one emblem will be very time consuming on my end thus a very expensive part.
    Some kid asked if I could make him a set of bicycle foot pegs because the store was charging $15.
    So this kid is probably thinking I could make them for $10, there's not was I would be able to make them for that price, I'd be working for about $1.50 an hour plus material cost
    The only way to make custom work cheaper is by ordering a large quantity, how large depends on the product.

    I hate saying "no it's too expensive to make" but this is why I have a line of emblems that I "think" are appropriate for Toyota vehicles that will be good sellers.
    Not ranting, simply explaining the nature of the business.
