Custom Geocoins

Recommended Posts

Hopefully I'm not being repetative with this topic, but I'm trying to find someplace to make custom geocoins. More likely on my budget it would have to be wooden nickels or poker chips. If anyone has sugestions of where they've had there's made or knows of someplace to do this, please post here. Thanks.

I had a pair of custom rubber stamps made and got some blank nickels from Ye Olde Wooden Nickel Shoppe for $18/pound (about 200 nickels). The stamps were about $20 each. Now I can make all the personal signature nickels I need. I will post links to the sites I used when I return home to my puter :o

yeah I think bazzle's idea of buying your own custom made stamps is best because you can make unlimited wooden geonickels at your convenience. I've seen blank wooden nickels for pretty cheap at both Michael's and Hobby Lobby.

The craft shops like Michael's are still spendy. Check Old Time Wooden Nickel Co, blanks are $18 per 1 1/4 pounds, that is about 200 nickels for $0.09 cents each. I got my stamps custom made at theStampMaker.com for about $20 each, I have one for front and one for back. I then pealed them off of the square stampers they came on and mounted one to each end of a 2" wooden thread spool, perfect size for stamping on 2" wooden nickels :unsure:. Be sure to use StazOn ink pads, they are the best I found for stamping in the finished wood of the nickels. End result look like these.

Sure are a lot of popups on that there site. And the install prompt rather disappointing <_< . Does anyone ever really fall for that?

Bons - be sure that your "self inking" stamp uses a solvent based ink. The others most commonly used with these stamps will not stamp or dry well on wood.

Oops. Well, looks like I'm likely to learn a little lesson soon.

 

Oh well, worst comes to worst, I'll find some cool looking paper, stamp it, burn the edges for effect, glue that baby down, and put some clear coat on it.

 

Thanks for the warning. :unsure:
