I was recently commissioned to produce a pendant for a clothing company and came up with the below. I had it printed in stainless steel and (inadvertantly!) pushed the limits of s/steel printing regarding the text areas... Sorry, but I didn't take a before picture; the pendant arrived with all kinds of what seemed to be organic "bits" jammed into the lettering which I had to dig out with a superfine needle point, and then I polished the front and back with a Dremel.

While I certainly wouldn't deliberately design the lettering this size again I'm quite happy that it printed almost 100% correctly. The pendant is 2" in height.
