• Laser Cutting love

    Well, if you haven’t picked up on it from my many Facebook posts, I am so excited to say we got a laser cutter last week. I’ve been busily experimenting and learning to design for the laser (it’s quite different than what I’m used to!).

    The most exciting part is what we at Wiregrass Weddings will be able to do for your stationery. Laser cutting has been trending in the wedding business lately, and it’s really no surprise when you look at all the cute things we can make.

    I’ve taken some pictures of a step-by-step process of making this first example of a laser cut invitation. This is so adorable that I’m sure it’s going to be a regular item very soon. Check it out, and let me know what you think!

    First my lovely assistant (my daughter, Brooke) and I get the files ready to be sent to the laser cutter.
