When I put the down payment on the Glowforge back in September of 2015, the first project I was sure I was going to do was my wedding invites. We got engaged in October of that year (I know, a long time for an engagement), but because of the very legitimate production issues that Glowforge is working through, it doesn’t look like I’m going to get mine in time to send out the invites.
But before I give up on this dream, I was curious if anyone in the Seattle-area would be game for a beta-project. Any takers? I was so sold on this laser-cut invite idea that I haven’t yet come up with a plan-B and I need to send these out soon.
Below is the first side of the idea using layered paper glued against a thin piece of engraved maple. The image is based on the photo of us beside it.
I can’t afford to to this at a maker-shop in town, I’d be willing to barter or trade with anyone willing to help out. Is anyone in the Seattle area interested?
