Default Your own personal TradeMark

When/if you make your own pieces of equipment, do you put your own name or similar, such as a personalised logo, on the front?

I'm not talking people who do this as a small business, I mean once-off hobby constructions.

If so, please post photos, preferably close-ups of the badges.

Never had a badge or anything , but I do sign PCB's and always mount resistors with the tolerance band downwards on the vertically configured ones and to the left on horizontal ones ! If the board is horizontal then the band is to the front and so on !!
Yes , I am OCD !!

I did a few board layouts for a company owner many years ago: he REQUIRED that all resistors be in a row, all diodes must face the same way, all capacitors must face the same way. It saves a lot of time and mistakes when you have teams of semi-skilled workers assembling the boards & checking them.

I mount resistors with the tolerance band on the right - then the bands read in the right direction: L to R.
