Available in a variety of colors, your customers will love these wine tumblers for their next festive event or even just a night in with friends. ey also make a great holiday or housewarm- ing gift! Fast and easy to customize, these sturdy tumblers are sure to become a cus- tomer favorite in no time. Materials Needed: • Wine Tumblers • Cleaning Solution • Magic Eraser • Rotary Accessory • Laser System We used a Fusion Pro 24 80 watt: Raster engraving — Speed: 50% // Power: 80% // DPI: 500 // Center-Center Engraving GP Step 1: Prepare the Artwork Start by measuring the tumblers and customiz- ing your artwork as necessary. Because there is a curve to the tumblers, it's best to size your artwork so that it remains on the upper portion of the cup. This will ensure the laser doesn't go out of focus on the curve of the piece when engraving. Step 2: Install your Rotary Before installing the rotary, be sure to lower the table enough to make room for it, then power off your machine. Place the rotary in the upper left corner of the table and plug it in. Now you may power the laser back on. Step 3: Determine your Parameters Test different speed/power/frequency settings for your tumblers. We used 50% speed, 80% power, and 500 DPI on an 80-watt Fusion Pro 24. Step 4: Prepare your Material Place your tumblers on the rotary and level them. Focus the table, close the lid and run the job. Step 5: Clean After the job is done, wipe any leftover residue from the surface of the tumbler using a cleaning solution, and then rinse them off with water. For this project we used Blu from Enduramark.
