Apart from a laser engraving machine, to start a laser engraving business you will need a computer system (either desktop or laptop) and graphics design software. The minimum operating system requirement is Windows XP/2000/Vista/Windows 7, which are all compatible with the laser engraving machines at Perfect Laser. Graphics software such as CorelDRAW, AutoCAD or Adobe Photoshop can be used. You will also obviously need the correct work area to fit the size of your machine as well as to give working room.
Laser engraving is not difficult and can be learned by anyone, with the laser engraving machine working much like a computer printer. Modern technology means that there are a large range of applications for a laser engraving machine and they can be used on many different materials and products, whether for promotional gifts, personalisation, commercial marking applications, security marking of expensive items or just as a hobby. It is your choice whether you would like to use your laser engraving machine part-time for fun and extra income or full-time as a unique and profitable business.
If you are still thinking about buying your laser machine, take heed of what Henry Ford said :
“If you need a machine and don’t buy it, then you will ultimately find you have paid for it but don’t have it”
