Hello from NC

I have been registered on the forum for a long time but more of a lurker than anything. Thought it might be time to finally say hello!

thanks for saying hello. Tell us a little more about what you want to accomplish here. Are you currently etching? Do you have or want to have a business related to etching? What type of etching are you doing (glass, stone, awards, hobby, professional, etc.). From your handle it sounds like to make your own designs. Tell us more, please.

Regards

I own a small business called Design Mine Graphics. It started out in 2010 just wanting to make a some decals for me and an ATV club I was in. Well that quickly grew from a hobby to a business. I now do cut vinyl, printed vinyl, sublimation (coffee mugs, license plates, signs etc), screen printing (the bulk of my work now is screen printing). I went to a NBM show a couple of years ago and got very interested in sand carving after visiting the Razyzist and Ikonics booths. I bought the 'starter' kit from Rayzist and have used some of the R3 from Ikonics. I put together my own blast cabinet from one I modified from HF. I am also using a HF pressure pot and a PAB gun. I have a lot to learn but I have learned a lot along the way. I am mostly doing etched glasses (have dabbled in some stone and a few bottles) I can do a lot of design but I have been using Will at Excalibur for a lot of my more difficult vectorization (been using his services for a few years and ALWAYS happy with him!)

Welcome from Mesa, AZ

I just tried to create a vinyl decal for a friend. It is harder than it looks!!
Started researching, studying and reading in February 2010. First piece etched on March 11, 2011
