Springfield Leather Company (https://www.springfieldleather.com/) has been my go-to for veg-tanned (and other) leather since I received my GF. I just received an email saying that Springfield Leather is now “partnering” with Glowforge. What does this partnership mean? Well, it looks like you can get a referral discount if you are planning a GF purchase, but not sure that means a lot to those of us who already have a machine. I think the real benefit is that they state they use a GF on a daily basis. This means that when/if you call for information on a specific leather, you have a real chance of talking to someone who not only knows what a GF is, but who actually uses one and could theoretically do a test cut on the leather before you buy. Yes, there are other leather companies that I use, but none seem to be laser-aware. I think this is great news!
Here’s a excerpt from their announcement. (most was just saying how great the GF is and what is does):
Springfield Leather Company and Glowforge
