Etsy Reviews for this product


These branding irons are made in my Trenton, Ohio home machine shop. I made my first one for a friend. and it turns out other people love them too. Since then I have made over 1600 of them, many of which are for repeat clients. They tell me that my service and buying from a fellow craftsman are what brings them back.

Gift or Tireless Ambassador

I hadn’t realized what the irons I was making would be doing when when they went out into the world. I should have known that these aren’t just gifts to show beloved woodworkers that their hobby is appreciated.  They are also used by my clever customers to turn every single item they stamp into a ambassador for their business or cause.  Cool branded giveaways for realtors, microbreweries, and distilleries.  Stamped keepsakes for family reunions, weddings, or retirements.  Embossed trophies for races.  The uses are endless.  And even better, they are easy to use.

How to Use

You’ll heat the back of the iron with a common propane torch, test on some scrap a couple times, and then be treated to the smell the wood smoke and the feeling of satisfaction as your design is burned on the project you have poured your heart into. I include picture instructions in every package to make sure you get the best results.

Design Creation

The design can be something you create or something I create for you. When I’m done, you’ll get a copy of your files to use as you wish.  The design alone is worth the price.


Made from Billet Aluminum.  Brass also available(How to pick)

Can be machined to any size from 1×1″ to 4×4″.  Shorter in one direction is just fine.  Select the size that fits the longest dimension of your design and I’ll trim the block to fit.

Available with or without the handle.

Uses the standard 3/8-16 thread in the back of the dies to securely mount the handle

Ordering Made Easy

1.  Add it to cart and complete checkout.

 If we can’t come up with something that you like at any point in the process I will quickly cancel your order and refund your money. No worries and no hassle.  I’m in the happy people business.  (Not to mention, I don’t want anything to do with an upset credit card company!) Ordering the wrong size is okay — I can invoice or refund the difference.  The order secures your place in line.

2. I’ll immediately send an email when your order is received.

The design can be something you have or something I make for you.  I’ll send examples to learn what you like, and we’ll use email to kick pictures of the design back and forth until you feel I have nailed it.  After your approval, the fun stuff begins.  Metal cutting takes a few days.    The whole email process works a lot better than I ever thought it would — I have no doubt my arsenal of examples from more than 1000 past designs helps.  Phone calls and Zoom screen sharing meetings can be used if we need to expedite things.

Photo to Approve for Shipping

I will make a test burn and send a photo of the results so you know your product is right even before you open the package.  If you are happy, you’ll approve the iron for shipping.

3.  After your approval, I ship.

The one-of-a-kind, shiny new branding iron will arrive in 1-3 days, ready to make every workpiece a tribute to its maker.

My Guarantee

If at any point during the creation of your branding iron, or within 60 days of you receiving it, you aren’t fully satisfied, I’ll happily refund your purchase.  My reputation and your satisfaction are worth more to me than a single sale.  1 year warranty on all branding irons and flame heated handles.

    I’m not going to overstate it , wow ! Honestly , from start to finish the best customer service I have received anywhere . And the finished product immaculate. Cannot praise or thank Matt enough for his efforts both in customer care and finished item 10 out of 10 .

    If you’re considering a branding iron, LOOK NO FURTHER. Working with Matt and getting the ‘exact’ design I requested was very easy and straightforward. Matt’s ‘customer service’ and attention to all my questions and requests was OUTSTANDING. I, for one, am very happy to have purchased an item made in the USA and equally important… supported a small business. Cannot thank Matt enough for the awesome iron. (if you ever see one of his pictures showing a iron that looks like an Irish Claddagh ring …. that’s mine.)

    EXACTLY what I was looking for! Let’s first talk about customer service… Matt is quick to respond, amazing at helping with design and his product is FLAWLESS! I bought my original iron in 2021 and still use it! It’s now been used 2,147 times and still going. I can’t say enough good things, worth every penny and then some! I have purchased every year since (I need current year branding iron for a project) Thanks Matt for providing such a great product and service! Catch ya again next year! 🙂
