  • Rowmark Nameplates


    Anyone want to share the best methods for carving nameplates using Rowmark materials? This sample is a matte finish material.

    This is a sample that I experimented with, hence the goofy letters and holes. Best of the tools I have was a 45 degree v-carve. Left remaining fragments like shown in the "Ch" but wasn't too hard to clean out. These samples are 1.25 by 3.5 inches.

    I have no experience with this, but I like the bottom one the best...the finer lines.

        Try a half rounded cutter. Like a vbit but the tip is rounded.

          Thanks for your comments.
          Some of the letters on the top view are with the smallest rounded tip V but that I have. I agree that the round would cut cleaner, hate it when I don't have the right tool.

            Charlie,

            I do my tags on the laser as it is less fussy about depths so they all end up looking the same.

            When are you and your biker buddies going to make a UP trip again? I've got a good campsite for you now!
