In a year that was filled with many dark and discouraging moments, it’s nice to have some things to look forward to, some bright spots on the horizon. The vaccine is certainly one of those. Christmas and the holiday season is another.
We try our best around here to get in the holiday spirit and to help others feel the same. Seems like this year in particular is one that could use as much Christmas cheer as possible. One way we do this is by cutting some special holiday ornaments and decorations to give out to friends and family.
This tradition goes back to nearly the beginning. In the early days (30+ years ago), we didn’t yet have lasers, so the designs were much simpler. Had to be a shape our old pega could punch out: stars, crosses, hearts, etc.
But thanks to lasers and improved drafting software (we use Solidworks for 3d design and Radan for programming), the designs have become much more intricate. We have done full nativity scenes, 3d reindeer puzzles, and ornaments with fine details and etching. Sometimes we powdercoat them, but do like the classic polished/brushed stainless look.
Some of our older customers say they have whole trees full of these ornaments and look forward each year to adding a new one. It’s neat knowing we’re part of someone else’s holiday tradition.
From our family to yours, may your Christmas and Holiday season be full of joy, laughter and health.
