One of the occupants wanted to renumber all of the the Conference Room signage in the building they lease and I thought “Hey I could probably do that on my Glowforge and make full profit instead of paying someone else to do it and only making the mark up!” The old one is on top of the new one and I’m blown away at how easy it was. The one you see in that picture was the “Rough Draft” and I was so pleased with it that I made all of our office room signage with the same settings.
With everyone returning to work in the near future and teleworking slowly coming to an end, this simple service is going to be a HUGE money maker for independent creators. I charged our tenant $15.00 per sign which is a very friendly price for custom signage and ended up making a profit of $14.17 per sign!
I’ve done a ton of little projects for friends and family on my Glowforge, but this is the very first creation that I’ve ever sold because I just didn’t think I was “Good Enough” to sell anything yet. Obviously these creations take practice, but I had no idea just how simple it would be to sell something even though I’m still an amateur. If anyone has any questions on how I did this or what settings/material I used, ask away in the comments and I’ll let you know!
