Homemade Badge was created by Schu

So a few years ago I took measurements of my JT badge and drew it up in ACAD so that I could have the guys at work run one off of our lamicoid tag machine. We used material that was black with white underlay. 

I just decided to use it on the rougher of my two JT projects and it doesn't look too bad. I mean it's obvious that it's not an OEM badge, but it's better than the original faded and warped one. The other original badge is still good enough to use for this project.

Like you said, not exactly like original...  I really like it though and would use them on my bikes.

How about making the letters all white vs. the outline?
I like them.
Let me know how much it would be for two of them.

I was thinking about making the oval border in solid, but you're right, maybe the letters would look better in solid too. My problem is I no longer have access to that lamicoid engraving machine because I changed jobs.... but I found a local source for engraving and they should have the ability to make them from my ACAD drawing. I will reach out to them this week. I am more than willing to share the ACAD drawing with anyone who wants to get a local engraver to make some. My measurements are for the small JT badge, but I will do my CT1 badges next!
