I recently got a 50-watt laser from OMTech. Of course, I was and still am super excited about this laser. And if you have been around a while then you know I like to get to it! The first thing I wanted to do is make engraved custom pencils.
Why? Because everyone loves personalized or custom engraved pencil sets. They make great birthday gifts, or for special occasions, and teacher gifts.
They just overall make great gifts for any special occasion or for special events! You can also make them promotional pencils for your small business, and add your business name or company logo to these engraved pencils.
In this video, I show you how to make a reusable jig. This jig is a pencil holder for your pencils while your laser engraves it. The pencil jig will hold the pencils in place while they are being engraved so that they don't move around in the laser bed.
They make the perfect pencils for party favors, promotional products, wooden pencils are also some crafter's best sellers! There are lots of things you can add as a special message. And another great thing is the variety of colors available.
I made some for my elementary school babies and they thought that these were the best thing they have ever seen. They already think I am a superhero but this kind of set it in stone.
