M17, with custom tooling on the bell face and personalized letters around the bell rim

We can custom craft bells using your art or logo.  Our bell shop does not digitally render images - but hand tools each one so they are unique.  A custom logo will  generally take a bit longer than a lettered-only bell.  Please contact us via phone or email for a quote on your custom design.  For an exact quote, please email your black and white art work and the size bell you are considering.  Pricing for special tooling is generally between $295 and $425 depending on the intricacy of the art.  

A bell with simple lettering around the outside rim (no custom art) can be ordered online and crafted in 6-10 weeks. We also have an inventory of blank (unlettered) bronze bells and brackets in stock that can be shipped to you immediately.  All bells can be ordered online.

Fire House bells: directly above, both bells are examples of the M19.5 size bell (14.17" at rim, 44lb). Note the special tooling is cast on a different face depending on how the bell will ultimately be hung. If you do not order a bracket, think about how your bell will ultimately hang and choose option 1 or option 2 in the layout instructions when you place your order

All bells are cast from pure bell bronze. The finish is polished bronze. Any variation in color in the photos is due to the lighting in which the bell photo was taken.

Bells which only have lettering at the rim (no design on the face), may also be custom ordered with an oxidized grey finish with the tops of the letters polished..
