WHAT YOU'RE SAYING...

"I like that fact that I can buy smaller units of sheet metal from you which are easy to handle for the small projects. Packaging was great. I'm still using the packing to keep all my metal safe! All in all, I've had a great experience!"
-Lisa

DID YOU KNOW...?

Did you know that lasers can be used to create colors on metal?

There are a number of different ways lasers can be used to create colors on metal; however, each method has typically required a highly specialized laser with very specific settings.

Now, researchers have figured out how to use a single, commercially available laser for three different techniques: laser oxidation, laser nanoparticle formation and laser structuring, making them "more practical for a wide range of applications in art and jewelry making, with the possibility of mass production."
