Meet Donna Fasano, an entrepreneur who started a laser-based business seven years ago that's still going strong:
What do I need to start a business?
With minimal investment you can get up and running with a business in no time. All you need is the laser, your own computer, and your favorite graphic software package (CorelDRAW, Illustrator, Photoshop - it's up to you!) The laser works like a printer - you set up your image and can "print" it to your material in a few minutes.
Is it profitable?
Whenever you can add value to a product by creating custom engraving, your profits can skyrocket. We have customers that have paid for their machines with their first engraving jobs! With a product line ranging from our entry-level Zing series to our newest G2 Galvo system, and with the same amazing engraving quality from each and every system, you'll find out why people all over the world are discovering the profit potential of an Epilog Laser System!
What training do you offer?
We have both onsite and online training available for our customers. Truly, the training is mostly on your graphic software though. If you already know how to use Corel or another software package, you're 90% there. The lasers are extremely easy to use and operate similarly to your printer.
What materials can I engrave and cut with the laser?
The great thing about starting a laser business is that Epilog's laser systems are so versatile. With one machine, you can engrave and/or cut wood, acrylic, plastic, fabric, marble, glass, and much more. You're only limited by your imagination!
