Eve Wishes for a New Laser Engraver



Introduction: Eve Wishes for a New Laser Engraver

Hi I'm Eve Tait.  I was born on Octorber 13th 1955.  (10/13/1955) I am 56 years old.

 I love to create specialty keepsake art gifts.  I love it so much that I am gradually transitioning into a full time crafts business run out of my home.  The laser engraver is my primary tool for making wooden keepsake items.  Two years ago I started making dated keepsake Christmas Ornaments for the local craft fairs here in the Texas Hill Country and did surprisingly well.  Last Christmas I doubled my sales and this year with the addition of my new Advent Calenders I hope to double again.  I also make keepsakes for all the traditional holidays and birthdays.

      Originally the laser was purely source of creative pleasure and fun but now that my business is growing in popularity, especially  in the fall with the up and coming holiday season , I am finding the low wattage of my laser engraver slows down my production.  Because allot of the items I sell are small and affordable to the customer, people tend to buy allot as small gifts.  I need to have a large inventory before Thanksgiving because the fairs are every weekend up until Christmas.  My current laser requires me to run it all day every day to allow for the time it takes to cut through the wood and engrave the Designs.  If I could have a higher wattage laser it would speed up my production tremendously.  The 100 Watt laser actually will cut two objects at the same time by splitting the laser beam.  This would be AWESOME!!

So my dream is to acquire a 60 or 100 Watt Epilog Laser engraver.  100 watt would be AWESOME!  

I do have a page on Etsy and my own website but most of my business is done face to face or when people see my work for themselves.  I will update my products on my website and Etsy as holiday season is coming.  

thanks for reading.
sincerely Eve Tait

    I know what you mean... I used to run a universal 100 watt laser and i had so much fun... just seeing what all i could laser engrave or cut.... from record albums, to making wooden and acrylic jewelry. to engraving my photos on wood and glass to making signs.... i also loved creating the graphics ... anything you can do with a scroll saw, you can do it faster with a laser... loved doing fretwork... i wish i could afford one for myself... maybe someday...
