Would you give an in-flip about a stamp tutorial?

Yes - I need the secrets that will win me the next Gateway contest
No - I love clipart, big blocky sans serif fonts, pixelation, and painfully uniform line widths

Stamping? WTF?
You can do this on your own without expensive machines? Forgive me, I know NOTHING about stamps. But wow.. that would be an awesome idea if it's somehow doable in my own house with some tools.
I'm game. :)

heh... it's as doable as a prison tattoo ;)

it requires the expensive machinery that each disc manufacturer has. my tutorial would only be about designing for hotstamps.

or if you want the prison tattoo style, get some silver leaf or gold leaf, heat up some shaped metal, and have at it. theoretically, you could take a design to a laser engraver, get an etched-metal copy of it, put it on the stove, and then press it against a disc covered in silver leaf.

I can put my artist bud to work, since he plays too.

What I'd REALLY love is an outlet to get them made, since I have a few discs where I love the translucent plastic feel/flight, but hate finding the things in shade. A metallic reflective 4" design would be most handy, since a 3M reflexite tape addition is not rules legal or stylish..

I'd like to hear all about the you design, tips, suggestions for stamp design. Then what you do once you have a design... how do you get them stamped by one of the manufacturers... etc. The whole process (since I've never done it).

good idea, udder... the stuff about once it goes to the manufacturer.
