Thanks,
Business is getting busier and busier now that people know that they can come in and get personalised products with whatever they want engraved on it.

Glad to see your 700x500 is no longer a table :)
Great setup and I can see how business is picking up - great selection of products

How do you chill those 3 - do you have one super dooper chiller that feeds all 3?

Chill, Come on, I'm in Scotland. I have a 10 litre bucket underneath each laser filled with demineralised water and silver coins, Lasers run from 09.00 till 17.00 and have yet to have a problem with over heating, Saying that, The door of the shop is never closed, so my shop is constantly chilled.

FBW

If anyone intends to use their laser as a business, The best advice I could give them is :- Make as many samples as possible, The more ideas you give the public, The more sales you will get. And most important, Tell them to bring you their ideas and you will turn it into reality.

I am also a big believer in samples- the general public has not idea what we can do and if you want to sell to them they need to be led to where we want them to go. Same with the sign biz- if you cannot show them they will not understand it. Gene

Totally agree Gene,
It's easier to sell if the customer has a design to look at and picture their details on it.
