From spare bedroom to high street shop

Going back to November 2011, and a chance conversation in a craft shop about laser cutting, I went home and researched the subject on the internet, and came across Epilog, and many other companies offering the laser equipment and consumables. After a few months research I bought the Epilog Zing 16 and I had it installed in a small spare bedroom March 2012.

I was going to use Corel Draw to create my image files so I spent time learning the software which meant I could hit the ground running and start making product straight away when my Epilog Zing 16 arrived. I also joined the Epilog Facebook group where I learnt a lot of tips and tricks from other Epilog users.

Things just progressed, my wife was selling home jewellery at a local market on a Saturday so I started making MDF shapes, rubber stamps and engraving photos onto wood and ceramic tiles. My wife would take orders if I was working, and customers would collect them the following week, I was gaining experience and my work was getting better and more intricate.

October 2013 we saw an empty high street shop which would be a lot warmer than a market stall so took a chance, rented it and opened 9th December 2013 just before Christmas.

We developed the business through a combination of walk in and internet orders and in April 2014 I took the plunge and left a comfortable job to run the shop fulltime.

The shop has now been trading for 14 months and I have also added a second laser.
