The real reason Marco got a laser.

Let's face it.  The real reason Marco got a laser was to make cool stuff.  

Most of what he has made so far has been just for fun.  From car models to gear boxes, 3D puzzles and more.  The laser machine is so much more than just an engraving tool.  The precision cutting ability allows for extremely fine detail and exact measurements.  The cuts and angles are so precise, most of what Marco has designed doesn't require glue or nails to hold together.  Everything fits like a puzzle.  Which is also part of the fun!

Marco has always enjoyed the creative potential that this laser machine offers.  Look for more of his one of a kind designs coming soon!

Engraving Techniques

A commonly asked question is "What's the difference between the two engraving styles?"  Regular engraving versus inverted or reverse engraving.  We thought a picture would be the best way to compare the two.

Regular engraving on top, inverted/reverse engraving on the bottom.  As you can see it can really change the look and feel of a sign.  Depending on the font and design, choosing the right engraving technique can make a big impact.
