“I knew I had great ideas swirling around in my head of all the wonderful things I could make if I just had a laser. I started to investigate and that led me to think “Can I do this?” I happily stumbled across the OMTech Facebook Group and was soon greeted by a bunch of helpful folks and great admins. Thanks to Josh Wright and the group, I knew I met the right like minded people. The support I have received from the group and from OMTech has been above my expectations. I am so happy with my OMTech 60W Laser. I look forward to seeing where it takes me. Let the creativity begin.”

What challenges did you and your business face before acquiring an OMTech machine?

Having a CNC machine with a 7W diode laser was holding me back from production numbers where I could truly make a profit. The diode laser was super slow, and also tied up my CNC machine when something needed to be engraved. A simple logo engraving, say 2x3” would take 5 minutes verses my new OMTech 60W would complete this within 30 seconds.

“It was the best decision I could have made. My production quickly increased. Now that I am not limited to simple designs, I have picked up work from corporate clients and have been able to expand my product line to include custom cut boxes, engraved old fashioned and pint glasses. I continue to look for opportunities to grow and expand my use of my OMTech laser!”

Why did you choose OMTech? Furthermore, what key features stood out to you?

I followed @edmonds_woodshop on Instagram and his purchase of an OMTech was definitely a catalyst to start looking at the company. In addition, access to U.S. support was a major selling feature and ultimately why I chose OMTech.

“We started our business about 3 years ago and decided last year that we wanted to branch out to laser engraving our products. So we purchased our machine from OMTech and it's been great! Simple to use and engraves everything really nicely. People are always amazed by how great photos looked on wood! This year, we will be branching out to a bunch of other product ideas as well, all using our OMTech laser engraver.”

Big dreams that are turning into big plans! We want to continue to grow and add more product. I do indeed see another machine in my future. If I look at my 5 year plan, I intend to have a store front and to run my business full time.
