Can You Etch It – A look back at 2012

Laser engraved walnut


The one that started it all

Welcome to Can You Etch It, the web’s first laser engraving series that specializes in laser engraving strange, unique, and even common items. Today, let’s take a look back at 2012.

2012 was a year full of excitement.  Some of it was good, some was bad, but you and I are forged into better people by both parts, the failures and successes.  For Can You Etch It, 2012 was a great year, a year full of growth.  Here are a few interesting facts:

  • The first episode of Can You Etch It was published on December 16, 2011 and featured a laser engraved walnut
  • The first video showed an M&M chocolate candy being laser engraved and was published on January 6, 2012
  • Overall, there have been 34 videos of laser engraving goodness with over 2300 views on YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, and this site

Top 3 Can You Etch It Videos from 2012

According to YouTube, the top three most videos are (drum roll please….)

Laser engraved CD case (#18)

Laser engraved baseball (#11)

Laser engraved Mirror (#20)

These three videos account for almost 20% of the views, over 440 views together.  You can see the episode number on the side.  It looks like the end of April was a good time for laser engraving videos with a little help from America’s past time.

Overall, a great start for a video series.  Can’t wait to get started on all the great episodes for 2013.  If you have any ideas for upcoming videos, let me know.  Who knows, you may just earn some laser engraving goodies.  Have a great day
