I've been looking into laser engravers. I've been getting requests from customers for personalized toys.
Then I watched a video presented by a woodworker who uses his to cut patterns in hardboard. It occurred to me that cutting patterns from labels or sheets of paper would not require much of a laser. Precisely cut patterns would be a useful time-saver for me.
They are expensive and take up a lot of room, but the value added from just being able to personalize items I sell might be worth it. The big Etsy sellers offer custom engraving on their toys for a premium.
Laser cutters are pretty much the same thing as CNC routers, but they use lasers instead of routers to do the cutting.
Do any of you have a laser engraver?
