    Request for assistance in designing a Makers Mark!

    Hi all,

    I am now ready to get a Makers Mark for stamping my leather holsters and I need some help.

    Request:

    Design me a makers mark for Side Guard Holsters. General ideas I have are a Shield of some sort with SGH in the middle but please be creative. Size can scale down to about inch x inch.

    What you will get if I choose your design:

    Custom rig with any holster and double mag or single mag or light/mag or speed pouch items I make.

    Post here your high level design.

    Thanks...
    MNBurl

    I really like the first one......The other 2 are good too but I dont think will you be able to read the script font when it is stamped in leather.

    The first two are little too complicated to imprint into leather (was trying too hard), but a simplified version might work....









    And if you really did want to go with the shield theme...



    #3 is my personal favorite.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    Well Pete has me beat by a long way when it comes to skills, but this is the direction I was headed.





    The second one has room for a couple of pistol outlines or if you want to put your initials or just about anything you want.

    @ BigEFan

    I like your second design there.

    I was just playing around in Photoshop. I grabbed the cowboy and eagle graphics from a clipart gallery I had handy. I put them on a black background so it looks a little more like it wound on an actual holster. No real skills involved...

    Anyway, MNBurl, I hope you like my designs. If you'd like to see anything changed, or if you have any ideas you'd like me to draw up for you, let me know. I sent you a PM.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    Edit: A Google search on "SGH Holsters" didn't turn up your site (Yes, I know it's in your sig). I'm pretty good with search engine positioning - let me know if you'd like some tips there.

    This one should look very familiar.





    edit:I thought the image would be bigger. I'll work on it.....

    It's looks like I was drinking Maker's Mark when I made this. It's more of an idea than a finished product. I'm in a hurry, so I can't fine tune it. I'm thinking maybe trailing the letters from the upper left to the lower right. It's simple and a little different.

    Good luck!

    Edited to say--It's supposed to be an Indian shield.

    There are some fantastic designs! I can see 4 or 5 that would be very good choices. Thank you to everyone who has posted.

    Keep them coming.

    makers mark

    Ok, I am not talented enought nor have the knowledge of how to draw this, but here is the concept. What about a outline of your slide holster with SGH stamped in the middle. Thanks for your consideration.

    I'll take a shot. This one is simple, refined and not too blocky and clip-art like and heck it's to the point.

    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    ..or as you originally requested the SGH initial version
