Laser Presston

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.

Black and white acrylic cut outs.

Laser engraved wood samples.

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!

Presston engraved in veneer. Cool, but very thin and fragile.

*NEW* Trading Card Series

LP soon will be producing a series of trading card sized mini-prints. This series is designed to promote LP as well as introduce some new artists to our customers. And from time to time we will produce TC's by folks we've already worked with, you know, just for fun. :)
The TC's will be free with purchases of $30 or more, or available to buy for $5/5-card packs.
The first card of the series is from a very cool illustrator and friend/customer of LP's: Joe Scarano.
