We had our signature medallions made by Laura Zaruba, owner of elle Z designs.
Laura found a unique niche with laser-cut wedding invitations; but she assures me she will work with anyone “…to create your unique logos, or anything else you need in wood, marble, plastic, metal, etc…” (I quoted this from a recent e-mail message she sent me). She did a terrific job with our medallions!
After posting on Lumberjocks in reply to a question by a fellow woodworker, I received several questions regarding our signature medallion; in particular, the basic question was “…where did you get these made…?”
This is our signature laser-cut medallion, already glued to the underside of a project:
You recently saw the medallion in the short video I made on giving cherry a sun tan, and making your own buttons. A screen capture image from that video shows the medallion installed on the underside of the stool top:
I worked with Laura Zaruba to develop the logo. She was terrific – even sent us samples of the logo in various sizes, for us to determine which would be best. And in the end we selected the one we thought fit our style best.
Laura Zaruba is a busy lady these days. Although her web site is in need of some updating (she is working on doing it), she will be married later this year, is moving to a new city, is going to school to get an MBA, and is a corporate banker. Laura’s web site mainly focuses on the unique niche of laser-cut wedding invitations made of wood ( !!! ); it does not mention the medallion part of the business, but she will work with you to create your own design, or to implement your design on just about anything wood, marble, plastic, metal, etc.
