I am looking for someone who does either photo etching or 3d printing. I need to make badging for my Oldsmobile 88, I will provide sizing, if someone can do for a reasonable price.  These are the two I need;

One of these

I would suggest photo etching over 3D printing for the chrome look. You would either have to paint or get the 3D printed parts plated to get that chrome effect. Though the 88 badge looks like it has some definition to it.

Thanks for the info gents :occasion14: .  I will follow up with that link Alex.  I would prefer photo etched, like you say Tal, it will look more realistic and likely come pre-chromed. I got  photo etched parts for my 1/8 Ferrari that had definition, fender shields and the like, so I know it is possible to give the 88 badge some depth.

Photoetch won't get the depth and the curved surface though. Is it not easy enough to source them from a junkyard, eBay, or an online shop? 3D printing will get that depth, then an acetone bath and sanding will smooth out the surface, which can then be finished in a chrome spray. It would be a way nicer finish than photoetch.

Have to watch out with the acetone bath. Something that small will easily turn into a blob of plastic.

Sounds like 3d printing would be the best then, not that I really am concerned about what process is used as long as it looks good.  I  may have to start trying to figure out how to make a 3d file as there seems to be a number of sources that will print it out for you and in a bunch of materials. Well I found one company so far.
