I've passed $10,000 on my Etsy store thanks to Glowforge

Wasn’t sure if this is the right forum or ‘everything else’ but it says “stories”. Surpassed $10,000 revenue on Etsy in only 4 months thanks to GF.

Anyone that says you cant use a glowforge for business is wrong. Sure a bigger/more powerful machine will do better, but just starting out this works.

I make custom coasters, wedding items (wood place cards, table signs), wall signs, bottle openers, etc

Edit: here’s some pics of some of the things I make:

Thanks everybody! I hope to continue to grow and double it and more!

Just curious, is that $10k net or gross? Net would be fantastic!

$10K revenue not profit. Just the $10K mark in Etsy where it shows you at the top

Wow, makes the $250 ( on pace for $1k /year) I have made selling designs seem like chump change.

Want to link to your store? I will say lots of competitor research, using all your tags and Etsy ads helps me. Probably also my background in internet Marketing

Wow that’s awesome! How much are you putting into ads, if you don’t mind the question?

here is the link

Except designs are higher profit and more passive, so your hourly rate will likely be closer than it seems at first glance.
