What is a Glowforge and why you need one...

I’ve noticed that I keep getting asked the same questions over and over from crafters thinking about buying a Glowforge. So here is some helpful information.

The Glowforge is a 3D laser printer that allows you to creates beautiful things. It’s a laser that uses a thin laser to burn through materials like wood, acrylic, leather, and many more. The Glowforge performs three different functions: Cut – the Glowforge cuts entirely through a material, Engrave – the machine cuts through a portion of the material, and Score – the Glowforge leaves a line across the material.

Glowforge is compatible with JPG, PNG, SVG, PDF, and other file formats. You can create Glowforge-compatible files from a variety of different software platforms like Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, CorelDraw, Adobe Photoshop and more. I personally use Inkscape.

All Glowforge 3D Laser Printers are quick to set up and easy to use. The Glowforge Basic is an introductory model, perfect for personal home use. Glowforge Plus is a premium offering for the ultimate personal printing experience at home. And Glowforge Pro is the most powerful and capable model for big projects, businesses of any size, and shared use.

The advent calendar is the main reason I purchased a Glowforge late 2019. Since then our business has grown so much that we need 2 lasers to keep up with production.

At Christmas time ornaments are our top seller. Our 2 lasers make gift making easy. We engrave pocket knives, pizza peels, spoons and more. You can see more inspiration on our Etsy store here.
