Keep it up, mate. Wish I had the skills,....btw love the stickers

Thanks heaps mate, it all started with a couple mates saying that I should have a go at making a bat, and now Im here. Only way to do it is to have a go. It seems to be quite an addictive hobby because I just love seeing what I can do with some tools and a chunk of wood. The stickers do look brilliant, Im a sucker for a minimalist approach.

Thanks for the words mate. I feel that Im getting more comfortable with the tools and the shapes seem to be coming out a lot better. Ive made a couple at 2.8 and 2.9. My skills with the travisher are slowly growing and Im beginning to feel more comfortable making concave shapes. I havent got any photos of them unfortunately. Im currently working on a Millichamp tribute that should finish up around 2.8. Ill have to get some photos up once its finished.

Thought I would post in my own topic as I didnt   want to create a new thread in the wrong area.

Im looking at upping my sticker game (Embossing and a bit of texturing through the sticker).The company I used to do my last lot dont offer this service. Has anyone got any recommendations? Preferably one with a small MOQ?

Thanks in advance lads.

Loads of good guys out in India mate, generally anything in the U.K. has massive MOQ, India can be hit or miss quality wise, but use someone that has done companies stickers that you like and it avoids this issue.

Happy to provide a contact mate in India. Quality stickers and helpful, but there are higher MOQs than the UK.

Throughout my search Ive contacted two that look reputable. But so far only received comms from one. Their MOQ is quite high but its a start.

If your willing to mate, I would appreciate it. Having a few sources wouldnt hurt to have. Thanks

Hi,

I have a contact in India if you want it? Quality is good. Think MOQ was 100 sets. You may well have already got this contact as I got it from the forum.

Few bats Ive done up over the past couple months. Been relatively quiet with the workload. Do alittle bit here and there but still shaping away when I get the chance. Shapes are becoming a lot nicer in my opinion. Just need to invest in some more equipment to improve my finishing and Ill be quite happy. So enjoy guys!


G2 at 2.12


G2 at 2.7


G1 at 2.12


G1 at 2.12


G1 at 2.8 currently. Still on the bench. Going to be my stick when the season starts. Might need to concave alittle as I would like it to finish at 2.9. Looks to be a belter tho.


G1 at 2.8


Most of the shapes are very full. As I said, I think my shapes are getting a lot better. Just need to improve the finishing. If you want more pics I shall post them up. Hopefully get a few more on the bench during the off season.

Yes, definitely beautiful profiles, especially of G2 2lb 7oz, looks a big bat as well!
