You all have probably seen a thousand engraved coasters over the years, hah! But I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out. These are pre-cut coasters I purchased off Amazon (I like the rounded edges) then engraved using a template/jig thingie.
I’ve worked in the art industry for decades, and it’s always fun to see your original artwork or designs return from the printer or manufacturer. But I have to say, I find it way more exciting seeing my work magically come to life like this without it ever having to leave the house. Is it wrong to have such a control-freak grin on my face?
I’ve mentioned this on several occasions, but I’ve had access to my machine for the last 3+ years, and I still find myself entranced, from time to time, just standing and watching it make something new.
Got a link for the amazon item? Those look kind of cool.
nice woodcut style design there.
No. It’s exclusively reserved for those of us who have a laser at our disposal!
Nice job on those.
Holy smokes. I just looked these up on Amazon.ca and they want $63.66 Cdn for them. With the exchange rate and the shipping I can buy them on Amazon.com for $35.37 Cdn.
I guess being Canadian we have a huge “Screw Me” sign on our backs.
Not sure about the current exchange rate.
Yeah that’s what I referred to in my other post. That price plus shipping and the exchange rate is $35.37 Cdn.
Ah, got it. On the other hand if you break your arm you won’t get bankrupted by your healthcare system… I think you might be ahead overall.
Haha. I guess that’s one plus alright. I just hate that we get stung so bad on issues like this. I have purchased stuff before from Amazon.com and with shipping, duty and exchange rate saved a bundle over buying from Canada. I wouldn’t complain one iota if they were selling the same item for just a couple bucks more but when it’s almost double that boils my oil lol.
No, it is definitely not wrong. Love your artwork, it came out beautifully!
There is something to be said for instant gratification. Looks good. I also like the way the engraving shows up against the dark walnut.
Splendid design and very sharp results
Biggest one there is hehehe
