Nice! Is the lettering carved or woodburned?

The lettering is done with a Laser Engraver so it is burned in.

Did you buy a laser engraver or did you have it done? I would love to get one of those.

I bought a laser engraver. I have an Epilog Helix 50 and it works great.

A lot of my customers wanted products engraved with their company name or for individuals for weddings, etc and I was spending a lot of money having it done not to mention hauling everything back and forth. Then you are also dealing with their timelines and their mistakes. The last time I went for engravings I had already ordered mine but it was still being built so I had not choice. I took in 30 items, all the same, to be engraved, they put one of them in backward and engraved on the wrong side which just did not work. All they would give me is a sorry and “you can sand it out can’t you?” NO I can not sand it out. I had to built a new one and they graciously engraved it for free.

There is so much I can do with it. I have a long list of items I want to use it for, and I need to, it was expensive.

Good looking and fun signs. Like the first and the last sign, I’m sure they will get the message very well.

Have your say...
