How it works is easy to understand. A laser will remove the surface or change the colour of a surface using the application of heat. It can work alongside print technology, showing the advancements made in this sector.
Whether you’ve already invested in a laser engraver or are considering doing so, below are some ideas that could see you making the most of your machine and, potentially, turning a profit.
Personalised gifts: Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries . . . the list goes on regarding special days we’re expected to celebrate with our loved ones. If you struggle to keep finding innovative gift ideas, a laser engraver could answer your woes. Laser cutting machines are capable of engraving on a wide range of materials, meaning you could give fully personalised gifts featuring everything from the person’s name to special messages or even images. As laser engravers are powered by software, you simply input your design then leave the machine to perform its magic.
Engraved phone cases: Almost all of us have a smartphone these days, so what better gift could there be than a customised phone case made from wood, plastic or even metal. Also, a phone case is made of durable materials that will help protect the phone from those all too common mishaps like bumps, dents or cracked screens.
Laser engraved maps of somewhere special: If you and your partner have travelled somewhere special together, there surely can be few better ways to mark the moment than by designing and producing a laser-cut map. As lasers can cut into hard materials, your map will be far more durable and longer-lasting than simple paper or card copies, giving an enduring memory of your time spent in your special location.
Use laser cutting on an existing product: The beauty of laser engraving is it can be used on almost anything, so if your partner or loved one has a product they’re particularly keen on, why not personalise it with a customised message. For example, if your partner plays violin, a laser cutter could be used to etch a message or symbol into the wooden casing.
All of the above on a commercial basis: If you already own a laser machine and have learned to design and engrave already, why not put these abilities to good use and offer your skills on a commercial basis? Not only could you recoup the outlay of buying your machine and gain a Return on Investment you will likely also derive great pleasure from offering such an invaluable service to clients.
