Hello,

We are a small toy maker and one of our products contains painted wooden letters. The letters are 6" high with a bevelled edge on 1/2" thick pine and we paint them front and back. Currently, we hand paint our letters but as the business grows it is becoming far too time consuming to continue to paint them by hand.

We have also tried spray painting them using a number of different sprayers (from canned spray all the way up the line to industrial sprayer machines). The results were not great. It tends to come out blotchy and messy.

I am wondering if anyone can recommend another method? We need to paint in batches of a few hundred letters so we are looking for something cost effective and efficient.

One thing I am thinking about is getting a tumbling machine similar to the one in this video (2:20 mark). Anyone have any experience with something like that?

Thanks!

Shawn
