Default Custom tap handle search

Anyone have any advice for making custom tap handles? Seems simple enough to turn them on a lathe, but does anyone have suggestions for a handle where one could replace a logo for a beer? In other words, I want to be able to change the brew the tap handle is attached to and display its logo in a classy way.

Are you going to make the individual labels from engraved brass, paper and ink, or other?

I bought tap handles with a blank area for the logo. I just created the logo print it on photo paper and then use double-sided tape to attach to the silver area. Then they peel right off and I put another on.

Bought tap handles at Taphandles Inc. - Custom Beer tap handle, tap marker, and tap knob supplier. We design and manufacture quality tap handles, tap markers, and tap knobs for breweries of all sizes.

Oh nice. Yes, I was thinking ink and paper. Cheers!

Monty....you're......a......GENIUS! This is my first post, usually I just browse around looking at fun stuff...but this....this....it's amazing. Seriously. So sweet I had to post just to say thanks for the instructions and wonderful layout. I will be putting this on my new Keezer that I am building in the next 2 weeks!

And your sig....it's incredibly disgusting and wonderfully excellent at the same time.

What's the total cost on that per handle Monty? This seems like something that could catch on quick if the price is right.

I know that hardwood railing can be found at Home depot in the hard wood floor section for $5 a piece, I did this same thing for a few projects. (table legs, tap handle...) But mine didnt quite turn out like montys, I like the addition of the thin wood front so you can put writing there. I just used a wood engraver and burner to write into mine then stained them.
