We recently contacted Kurt at 5280 Lasers about possible future collaborations. Laser engraving is becoming quite popular, but beyond that, we think the end result is somewhat akin to letterpress printing. The depth and detail achieved is quite impressive and the variety of material that can be engraved is very broad.
Anyway, we sent in a simple image of our logo Presston, that had previously been used on a card, just to get an idea of what could be done. Quite by surprise Kurt created some samples for us to look at. We will definitely be doing some fun stuff with 5280 in the near future.
Not sure what kind of wood this is, but it has been stained a pretty blue-green, and Presston has been inlaid in abalone shell. Fancy!
