I was wondering if anyone has personalized their cue case at all? I received a 3X5 Instroke Buffalo for Christmas and would love to attach a small gold plate with my initials on it. Instroke has a similar piece with their name attached at the bottom, so I was thinking of putting the same type deal only at the top.

Anyone know what that might be attached with? I don't want to mess up my case obviously. Or does anyone know of something that works well to attach something like that?

If I were you I would look if you have a leather or saddle shope in your area they would be able to help you. STICK

There's a guy at my hall who CARRIES an Instroke case that is signed by a shiite load of pro's. Pretty cool, but I'd be afraid to carry it around. He's a collector and has some high dollar cues IN that case too, which makes it doubly scary.

I just put my APA Break and Run pins on the pockets of mine. Very small collection at the moment though lol

Hi,

Once long ago I bought a hard case covered in suede and bought a lil gold plate and had it engraved with my initials. I then took an exacto knife and traced the plate into the suede and glued it to the case. It looked great but eventually I had to replace it because it got all scratched up. Now, I have a JJUstis case and yes, my name is laser engraved. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
