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 I’ll engrave some labels.
Labels are important to our lives. Industrial plants, electrical panels, and businesses all use a variety of labels to let everyone know just what switch to flip and what that switch does. Without those labels, we are reduced to trial and error to get the desired result. In an emergency, we don’t have that kind of time to waste.
Why laser engrave labels?
There are a wide variety of options when it comes to labels. It can be as easy as a Sharpie marker or as complicated as a hand engraved brass plate. Often, the choice comes down to what is cheap and easily available. With a little planning and cost, you can have laser engraved and cut custom labels that will last and look great for years.
Here is the video showing the labels being engraved. The labels being engraved are as follows: On, Off, Main Panel, Circuit A, Circuit B, Valve 1, EMERGENCY, and In Case of Zombie Attack. At the end of the video you can see the final result. For more pictures, check out the end of the post.
