Should you wet wood before branding?
Wet woods like pressure treated or even air dried woods that aren’t fully dry will require significantly more time with a hot brand applied than fully dry woods.
How do you transfer patterns from paper to wood?
1) Draw the pattern in reverse, go over it in soft pencil, put the pattern pencil side down on the wood and rub the paper. The pencil pattern will transfer to the paper. 2) Lay the pattern on the wood over a sheet of carbon paper. Trace over the pattern, the carbon paper will transfer the pattern to the wood.
What stencils do you use for wood burning?

Can you stamp onto wood?
Stamping on wooden discs is simple as the surface is flat. However, untreated wood, particularly balsa or similar types of wood, has a porous surface, therefore ink and coloring materials may run. It is a good idea to practice first when stamping directly onto wood or other unknown surfaces for the first time.
Can a printer print on wood?

Can you brand yourself?
Yes, your brand. Maybe it’s time for some personal branding. If you don’t brand yourself, someone else will, and the outcome might not be so favorable. Branding yourself keeps you current in your field, opens doors for you, and creates a lasting impression on potential and existing clients.
