Laser Cutting

Our laser machine, in combination with state-of-the-art design software, is a very versatile tool in product design. Custom shapes can be cut from wood laminate, acrylics, mats, and more. Graphic designs and personalizations can be lasered directly into surfaces of wood, stone, glass and other materials.

Sandblasting/ Etching

High pressure sand blasting is a process that has many applications. We use it to etch names and copy into a variety of materials, primarily glass and stone.

Glass Color-Filling

We call this Glass "Staining", because the end result has a dramatic, stained glass look to it. Unlike the traditional art of stained glass that involves cutting pieces to size and inlaying them into metal borders, our process requires no cutting and no complicated metal structure. After sand blasting a design into glass or crystal, we apply a bright, liquid lacquer that bonds with the sand-etched surface, creating bright and vivid color.

Color Imprinting

Color Imprinting uses special inks, heat and pressure to "imprint" designs directly into the surface of metals, ceramic tiles, glass, fabrics, and more! From simple text to rich, full color photographs, this economical process produces stunning and vibrant color.
