One of our readers decided to buy a diode laser. He reached out for expert help in choosing a laser cutter for him. We observed that he wants a laser machine that can even work on stainless steel. The person was confused because he did not have any idea of metal engraving earlier. After taking our assistance, he then switched his mind to buying a diode + infrared laser machine.

What was the consequence?

He incurred slightly more amount of money but the one-time investment gave him an additional business of $4000 per month and he decided to sell engraved tumblers from his home. He usually charges $30 extra for engraving a stainless steel tumbler now!
