Where to get custom cookie cutters?

Has anyone ever made cookie cutters or found a place to have them custom made?

I've never heard of that at all Janet. Is there something you are looking to do? I look at cookie cutters everywhere we go but have never thought of having any made.

I've ordered from these people quite a few times. They do custom cutters, but only in bulk...around 5k pieces. However, they have a kit for making your own. I haven't tried it, but if you don't want too complex a shape, it may be worthwhile.

Make Your Own Cookie Cutters

Edit: They also have a huge variety of cutters...maybe they already have what you need?

I am looking to improve this giant cutter I made from a paint can lid, copious amounts of hot glue and plastic ruler 15 years ago. It's very functional but highly disgusting... I use it many time each year to make shortbread. The cutter makes a scalloped edge circle and the funky popsicle stick thing makes wedge shaped indentations in that circle so that the short bread cracks into 6 perfect pieces. This is all sized to fit into a standard size small small can that you can buy at dollar stores. I make them as gifts at xmas, etc. Each can holds 4 of these big cookies.

To make this even worse, I use the flat end of a carpenters pencil to make a pretty shaped oval imprint in each wedge. The paint can lid mock up was intended to be just that - a model, but it got pressed into service and I've been using it ever since.

Pics of actual cookies - I had fun this weekend.....

This batch took 1.5 lbs of butter :) I found a place that may be able to make me a cutter but am still waiting for an estimate.

Janet, talk to the shop teacher at your local vocational school.

Perfect timing Thanks JamesS -- My youngest grandson 3rd bday is in a few days and he wants Firetruck theme for his party and I found a set of different fire items for only $7.95 on that site. Already placed the order. He will be thrilled to see the cookies. I have my work cut out of me as I already volunteered to make his cake. A Firetruck of course. Found that on the Betty Crocker website.
thanks again

The only problem with the vocational school that they may not have food safe grade material.
