Welcome to the World of Casting!  You are about to embark on a venture of excitement, frustration, success, failure, and hopefully in the end, some appreciable pen blanks. Casting is not for the faint of heart or easily discouraged. It takes practice, learning from your mistakes, and understanding the effects of various weather conditions, such as heat / cold, humidity, and water condensation, in your particular climate and region of the country.  Please contact us if you have any further questions. 

Our preferred types of labels for clear cast pen blanks can be purchased at OnlineLabels.com. We recommend Alumilite Clear Slow (urethane resin) for casting labels, which can be purchased from Alumilite.com or TurnTex.com.
