LASER ENGRAVING REPORT O ur first engraver was a used New Hermes rotary engraver purchased from eBay almost 25 years ago. It arrived in pieces in a box, and my husband rebuilt it. About 15 years ago, we bought a nearly new Roland EGX-600 rotary engraver from a local real estate company that rarely used it. Over the years, we've dabbled in engrav- ing, always offering it as an option but never pushing it. We had never defined what we wanted to do with an engraver – mainly offering name tags, desk plates, and ADA/Braille signage, but it was more of a side service rather than something that generated steady revenue. We became interested in laser engravers and were amazed by their capabilities, and after attending the Maker Faire in the Bay Area where Epilog had a booth, we con- nected with a local Epilog distributor. It's Beyond Personal Business-to-business laser engraving Over-engraving sheets of tags gives us back-up stock for rush and repeat orders.
