The initial design and planning of these silver castings is crucial to a successful outcome, weight, functionality, fittings, assay marks and polish all come together with 3D artists, jewelers, casters and artisans in apparel and walking stick manufacture to create heirlooms that justify the time and effort.

Embossers

Heraldic Artist
silver adhesive legal seal

An embosser is a great way to make a heraldic impression! After a simplified two level matrix is created of your arms, crest or badge it is incised into a two part offsetting bronze matrix.

These bronze disks become a removable component of your own embosser and alternative bronze plates can be commissioned.
