Same for the reproduction tail lights ($50ea.)

Marker lights, etc. anything that needs the original marking!

Here is an actual comment on a repro head light I did for Lawrence of Pace, Fl.
Got it back today. Unbelievably great job. When I saw it, I literally said “Holy fucking shit. Fucking awesome.” I am so thrilled with this job that I wish all work came out this well. You certainly exceeded my expectations.
Thank You Lawrence

When possible the original product marking (stamping) should be restored using the original stamping method.

Pictured below in copper plate just prior to chrome plating is the product after the original marking has been restored (re-stamped).

Bill Wall Stamps by

By , 05/26/2015

A Shot of some of the many hand stamps made for BWL over the years. The weird shapes help Bill to distinguish them (plus their his style).

Used when making a true Bill Wall Custom Creation, some of their engraving is so small and finely detailed an accurate copy or mold cannot be made from them. So you’ll know your creation came from the hand of the legendary Bill Wall.

Leather stamping with Bakelite

By , 02/22/2014

Just for fun Bill Wall and I took the cast raised reverse Bakelite pattern used to engrave the steel stamp for Jeff Decker. The pattern is 4 times the size of the actual steel hand stamp (impression posted below). Just goes to show that Bakelite plastic works great for making lasting impressions in leather!

Darth Vader is Bill Wall

By , 04/07/2012

Lucas recently invited Bill Wall up to his California Ranch asking him to apply his creative genius to a sterling Star Wars project!

For the next two years Bill will be working his off the Wall precious metal magic and placing his skulls in helmets for George and some very special Star Wars fans!

Universal Engravers has always been honored to work with Bill as his custom stamp maker and will be posting updates of this golden opportunity for Star Wars fans even before the metal has cooled.
