G R A P H I C S - P R O. C O M 2 0 2 1 C U S T O M G I F T A N N U A L 4 5 E pilog Laser Fans (ELFs) are some of the most creative engravers around. The ELF group on Facebook has so many engraving projects and examples of the uses of Epilog machines. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions from the ELFs, along with answers from our experts. Q Any recommendations for hardwood engraving? A Mask the wood. This helps reduce residue from seeping into engraved areas and makes for easy clean up. Use "bottom up" engraving. This helps pre- vent smoke and debris being pulled into the engraving area as the laser head moves. Q What kind of glass should I engrave? A Not all glass is created equal. While you may think you need more ex- pensive glass to get a great result, many of our customers use inexpensive glassware from restaurant supply stores or dollar- discount chains, both of which engrave beautifully. Q Do you have any tips for proper maintenance? A Clean your system, espe- cially the optics. Clean optics ensure that your laser produces the most precise en- graving/cutting results. Other maintenance activities depend on your machine model and are included in your owner's man- ual, in Epilog's online training site, and knowledge base.
