@scottyarcy, I'll tag you in here as well, as you can discuss and design each of the two other tags remaining with these guys so that others will be able to see what the process entails.

Honestly I haven't designed something in a while, but I have seen some of the examples on their website and I'm pretty excited!

Thanks for the opportunity @scottyarcy!

I'm having two designs made. One is pretty standard…

The other is more complex:

The complex one will test the ability to design a logo that's far, far too thin. @scottyarcy has already pointed out that he will need to thicken many parts, as I suspected he would. It'll be interesting to see how well the second image turns out given the difficulty it naturally presents.

The first, though, should look nice and is relatively straight-forward.

Photos of items made, they are both wall hanging items made out of steel. The height was 18" on the guy and the gal is 22" tall.

Opp's just realized the mini skirt was too short, had to replace it. Wrong pic, but good for laughs.......

Hey guys, 

Just made the PSU paw logo for Iacas. Photo attached

 

So whats going to happen with the NCB logo, is that I will have to make all the curved lines about the same thickness. There are 2 limitations, one is the 3D printer resolution but the other is that the smallest pen (that I know of) is an ultrafine sharpie. This also limits the size of detail

Hi, yep, pretty much expected that.

@Club Rat, you need to cut down on the complexity roughly tenfold! Man those are overly complex. Think about it… you've gotta fit a Sharpie in there and it has to fit on a golf ball.

yeah, I can probably only do the outline for @clubrat 

maybe some internal detail if there is enough room

plus, think about it, how much time do you really want to spend drawing all kinds of small details? :)

Here's a few other ideas. The golfer will make my Honey happy.

I've got a logo design for my St Lou Blues, but can not find the SD Card I saved it on....... Hate when that happens........

The only thing I could come up with so far is the star pattern from the dragon balls.

This way I'll at least feel clever about scattering balls all over the woods :-D

I'll think on it some more, but I'm planning to submit something final by the end of the day.

Something similar is why I was hesitant to take this on.  I currently use just dots on my balls - no words or letters or other symbols.  I couldn't figure out what I'd want, or how I'd judge it once I had it.  I like your DBZ Star Pattern idea.

Yes! Needs to be the four star ball, that's the lucky one.

Four star ball it is. That was Gohan's and he was my favorite DBZ character.

Haha yea, oh wait...what are you implying? :-D

Design idea submitted last night and @scottyarcy has already responded with a drawing which I approved. Quick response and excellent customer service.

    • Seveal years ago, I had a full swing wedge problem. It lasted for three rounds. It got to where I was using longer clubs, with abbreviated swings for my full wedge distances.  Finally, I just said "screw this" and golfed 54 holes with just my PW, SW, and putter. By the time I was done, my full swing wedge problem was gone. 
    • Hello Patch - I’ll most certainly heed your advice. I appreciate your input and reply, thank you. 
    • Lie angles really don't change. Mainly because you don't slam the sole of the Club on the ground repeatedly. The only thing that will change is the lofts will weaken a touch, because the clubface hits the ball not the sole. As stated before, if you've made a swing change or posture change, then you might want to check them.
    • Welcome to TST, and your retirement.  My recommendation is don't let golf be your only physical exercise in your retirement. By itself, it's not enough. Do other things to stay mentally, and physically active. Those other things will make your golf journey more enjoyable.  I've been semi retired, and fully retired going on 15 years, now. Golf is is a big part of my life, but so are a lot of other things. 
    • Interesting post @Waddaplaya. I'm not trying to say that all clubs are necessarily like this, @iacas. All I'm trying to point out is when consumers buy clubs off the rack, or get a "custom fitting" where the golfer gets his clubs built to his/her specifications, they may not be the proper specs due to manufacturing tolerances, etc. And lie boards seem to do exactly that "lie". A lie board is usually a thick 9" by 12" sheet of plastic a 1/2" thick. I'm not trying to say golf club fitters are terrible. They aren't. All I'm saying is a custom-build is better than a custom-fit.  When I was fit for my Exotics clubs 2 winters ago, my fitter doesn't write say 2° upright or 1° flat. He actually takes the time to write the lie angle for all irons fitted for the set. Tour Edge is actually really good about custom builds if you're willing to wait a few extra days for the custom department to build your clubs.  As far as shaft flex is concerned, the closest thing to standard that there is would be the FCM chart. And shafts can be frequency matched. It's actually a relatively simple process of taking an uncut shaft and placing it on a frequency oscillator and matching the numbers. My point is when you purchase mass produced golf clubs, your "standard" specs of lie, loft, swingweight, shaft flex, total club weight, face angle, etc. May be and probably are slightly off of their stated specs.
