Workshop Description: Ever wondered how a laser engraver could benefit your business? Perhaps just the thought of technology scares you a little? What if you knew that using a laser engraver as a tool can make your life easier or even add more profit to the projects you’re already doing. Laser engravers have come a long way and are now affordable and much easier to use. Anybody can do it. We’ll show you!!! And who doesn’t want to save time and make more money!!! Chad Thomas from Springfield Leather will talk about how they use their lasers to be successful and you’ll be able to do the same. There will be a Glowforge laser present; that way you can see a laser engraver in action as it cuts and engraves leather and other materials. Every attendee will get hands on training, as you’ll engrave your logo or illustration of choosing. Other topics include making patterns, acrylic templates, custom stamps, prototyping, personalization, production runs, displays, woodcraft, and more! We’re laying all our laser knowledge on the table so you can benefit as much as possible. If you have thought about getting a laser engraver or want to know more, don’t miss this!!! BONUS: Those who attend this workshop and purchase a Glowforge after workshop will receive a voucher to get the cost ($100) of the class back in credit at Springfield Leather.
Materials to bring: Be sure to bring a pen and paper along with all your questions, as well as a digital copy of your logo to engrave.
