I fence with a college team in San Francisco. Our school has recently approved a "school crest" for use with the athletics department. The other teammembers and I were intested in silkscreening or painting the crest on the backs of our Lame'(s).
What paint do you suggest for use with customizing your Lame'? It would have to be a paint or ink that didn't reduce the conductivity of the actual lame'. I think we could probably get away with the ink that is used to print names, though I am not sure about what type of ink that is.
Also, what are the rules regarding customization of lame's. Is it not prohibited, frowned upon, or just not common?
