Tour guests will witness live demonstrations of laser engraving on a variety of substrates (engravable plastic, aluminum, brass, acrylic, leather) including the software and artwork set up. In addition, there will also be a custom color sublimation project from start to finish (preparing the image/text, printing the transfer, adhering the item and pressing in a heat press). Lastly, traditional engraving on a special tour gift will be featured for Creative Comrades exclusively!
