First Print - My logo on Barn Wood

New to the Glowforge world. Just got my Pro recently and this is my very first print. I wanted to see how it would work on the back of some barnwood.

I think it did great and goes along well with the overall look of the piece.

Thoughts?

That your first print is on thick material and centered so beautifully - you’re gonna like it here :slight_smile:

The shading on the water tower came out so beautifully!

Your logo looks great against the prominent wood grain. Manley looking. :wink:

Oh yes, came out great! It kinda looks like a brand or wood burning.

This is exactly the look I was going for. Been wanting to get a brand, but honestly dont want to deal with the hassle of it…

Have a bit of feedback (it looks great, by the way!)

When you’re not masking the material, think about the direction of the soot/smoke as it’s being engraved. You can use that to your advantage. So it would (in my opinion) look better/more natural if the smoke was “up”, and not “down” as in your print.

I’ve used this effect to my advantage many times…

Great point. Thanks for that idea!

I like the look of that full logo, but need something that is quicker.

Thoughts on this version?

I think that’s lovely especially for letterhead/paper, but if you want a quicker one that still reads “brand” I’d go with everything but the mountains and the water tower - plus that would be recognizable from a distance, or when shrunk small.
