    DIY logos

    Do any of you put your own personal logos on your DIY gear. I was gifted an embroidery machine, and I was thinking about designing and putting my own mark on my stuff.

    I was thinking it would be a cool way to show that the things I made were my creations.

    If I decide to go this route, the next question would be what to make as my mark.

    (also just spinning my wheels in anticipation for new materials getting to the house)

    Custom embroidered logos would be cool! I played around with making a logo by tracing the mountains behind my childhood home.

    I had some success printing some at home using this method HERE.
    Later I used the same label image and had some printed by RSBTR when they had their $5 print on demand samples available. They since stopped offering it (even though it's advertised on their site ). I have reached out to them several times over the past year but it appears it is perpetually "COMING SOON!"

    I ordered these tags this year and sew them on my gear:

    Crooked seams and off color thread are the trade mark to my gear.
    My ego said, SURE you can.

    Hahaha! Well, I hope we don’t ever get our stuff mixed up, that’s my trademark, too.

    I knew I should have patented crooked seams and off color thread. I'd make millions!

    Too bad it's mine! What I should have patented was the pet rock. Tstark, if you cross the river and come to the MS. Airey hang coming up we can compare screw ups.

    Yep I do. I just ordered some custom tags. Upload a custom graphic, choose a size and pay the man. They will come in the mail and at less than a buck a piece they are easier then making them. I ordered some of the made din the USA logo as well.
    I would rather be in the woods... my dog would rather be in the pool. My wife thinks we are both nuts.

    This is what I've come up with so far. Don't know if I'm 100% happy with it, but I still have some fiddle time left before my gear comes.hemingway hammock logo.jpg

    *This is my first pic, so I'm hoping that it loads correctly!
