RE: custom paint logos on Kydex
The cheapest way to make a logo and have it be somewhat permanent would be to get vinyl stencils and sandblast it

Another option would be direct screen printing. Nazdar in Atlanta sells every kind of ink known to man for printing on all types of plastics. If they don't have an ink to print on kydex, then I would be surprised and if they don't have it then it probably does not exist. All it would take would be the ink, a squeegee, and a cap press frame. Probably less than $100.

RE: custom paint logos on Kydex
I am thinking of using a branding type of stamp tool with my logo on it if I can find a company that can make one.

Any suggestions?

Past attempts have shown that difficult to perfect and burning Kydex puts off dangerous fumes.
