Adding Color to Ceramic Tiles

Our Stone Fills work on so much more than stone! These color fills are different than a traditional color fill that is used on wood or acylic. The ones featured here are for pourous materials. They are such a great addition to marble, stone, granite, glass, crystal and ceramic tiles. Check it out!

Business Cards made with Rowmark Plastic

Look at the fun I had today. I needed more business cards and I knew the perfect solution was to go with Rowmark and their line of Flexicolor. Thickness is .020" so it is not much thicker than paper but much more durable. I started with the blank sheet and used the following settings for a 50-watt laser.

Veterans Day Dog Tag on Steel & Anodized Aluminum

Stainless Steel & Anodized Aluminum Dog Tags

 Dog Tag FixtureHere is a neat idea for Veterans Day. I created these dog tags to donate to my Crossfit. On Veterans Day we will be doing a special work out for the Three Wise Men foundation. Each of us athletes are donating to the foundation in order to work out that day to honor the three Wise brothers. http://www.threewisementribute.org/ - use this idea, if you can, to find a local business, charity, foundation, etc. to honor Vets.

I engraved the tags two ways. One was CerMark metal marking solution on stainless steel. The other is on black anodized aluminum.

 

I used the dog tag fixture by LaserBits to hold my tags. The fixture comes with a free downloadable CorelDRAW template.

Training Session on Engraving Crystal Ornaments

Training session on engraving crystal ornaments

At LaserUniversity we take training seriously. We want the LaserBits Customer Service department to be knowledgable to answer your questions when you call. Today I covered engraving crystal ornaments with Darsey.

Since the ornaments are different shapes it can be hard to align them in the upper left corner of your laser bed. In this situation, I select only the outline of the layout in DRAW and send it to the laser to lightly vector it on a piece of copy paper. My settings are 100% speed and 10% power. This gives me a location to place my ornament exactly where it needs to be.
