I am building a new Shapeways kit and the designer supplies artwork for the brass etch parts.  I'm looking for a company to etch some brass - any recommendations.

He also does cast resin and 3D printing work.

I don't buy RM every month any more, but I weakened when I saw the 800th issue in the newsagents.

The Railway of the Month, Sidmouth, features custom made brass etchings.

Possible lead?  :hmmm:
