Now, if you remember, I told you my friend Zena owns a retail shop and one of our great plans was to engrave these radically famous Yeti cups for her customers. Sounds simple enough - the laser engraving demonstrator actually did one for us before we plunked down our own bucket of money so we knew it wasn't rocket science. . . . right????
Well . . . running a laser is a lot like playing Battleship. There are several different settings that have to be determined for each material and each product you want to engrave - the biggest of wich are speed and power. So you'll often hear Kari and I yelling out positions - S100, P45 . . . S25, P30 . . . and so on. Now the engraving company does provide some basic guidelines - but these are much like the "Pirate Codes" in the Pirates of the Caribbean - just guidelines, really.
Suffice it to say we spent an embarrassing amount of money purchasing Yeti cups to replace the many errors we made. We have singed hair and battle scars, but finally conquered those damn Yeti Dragons . . . !!
