rock a laser funeral home

Families want unique ways to honor their loved ones, resulting in a funeral that is not much of a funeral at all, but more so a life celebration.So maybe you’ve considered adding some technology to your operation, a piece of equipment that can personalize many products, materials, and experiences. Perhaps you’ve considered adding personalized laser engraving services to your offerings. But maybe, you don’t know where to start. So today, we’re sharing four ways you can utilize a laser engraving machine to help your families in their grieving process.

  1. Market the Heck out of Cremation (with personalization)

    Believe it or not, cremation can actually bring you success! Instead of just offering cremation, specialize in it. Many people who opt for cremation don’t necessarily choose it because it’s cheap. Although price is a major factor, memories of their loved one are more so. Instead of undervaluing cremation, put the value back into by showcasing a broad variety of cremation memorials and educating families on the importance of memorialization and personalization. A personalized laser engraving on an urn or memorial turns the ordinary into an extraordinary life tribute. Delight your families, and add hundreds of dollars of profit to your cremation sales.

While a video capture a lifetime of memories, a tribute memorial laser engraved with family photos and special memories will keep your customers’ memories alive forever and help in the grieving process. Families will have gone through years and years of photographs and will already have favorite photos and memories in mind. Get inspired with Tribute Memorials here.AP16_BLOG_lazerock_photos_Paetsch3

Team up with local vets and pet stores to offer beautiful laser engraved pet memorials. It’s a growing 12 billion dollar market you need to tap into.laser engraved pet memorial products

  4. Personalized Keepsakes

    It’s becoming a popular trend give funeral attendees a little something to take away, a trinket or keepsake to keep your departed loved on in their hearts after the funeral. It’s also a nice gesture of thanks for their support. A laser engraving can add a personal touch, making a keepsake even more special.

How to Laser Engrave a Stainless Steel Tumbler Mug

You will need:

  • Stainless steel mug of your choice
  • CerMark metal marking spray (we used a sprayer and diluted it with denatured alcohol)
  • Rotary tool attachment
  • An AP Lazer machine
  1. Measure tumbler mug and prepare artwork for laser engraving. Tip: You will need to rotate your file 90 degrees to correspond to the positioning of the Rotary Device.
  2. Set up Rotary Device. Unplug y-axis and plug in Rotary Device plug. See video on this here.
  3. Apply a thin, even coat of CerMark Metal Marking Solution to the clean surface of stainless steel mug. Let dry for 2-5 minutes.
  4. On a 100w AP Lazer, run your file at 15 Speed, 80 Power and .0025 Scan Gap. Engrave with the 2″ lens. Experiment with different speed and power settings if needed.
  5. Once engraving is complete, rise off excess CerMark.
  6. Enjoy your personalized stainless steel tumbler!

Personalized Tumbler Retail Values

Price points for engraving YETI cups and other stainless steel cups range anywhere from $5 to $40 based on location. Customers using AP Lazer have said: I’m making $40 a cup. For bulk orders I’m getting $15-$20 here in California” . I get 25 per cup all the time“. CerMark is not cheap…here I get $25 a cup and $30 pending“, and  Depends on where you’re located. I can’t get more than $15-20 per cup on single cups. The distributor I work with on large orders, only pays $6-10. You can run a lot more per hour when it’s the same logo over and over.”

Tips for Engraving from AP Lazer Owners

  • Weigh the cup down with a wet dish rag to prevent slipping on the wheels of the rotary device.
  • Test on stainless steel material from WalMart to save money while testing.
  • Make sure the layer of CerMark is thin and even. A thick, uneven layer will not produce good results.
  • Stick to your price if you feel the price is right. Never let customers dictate the price.
  • Mask where your cup makes contact with the drive wheels on the Rotary Device to eliminate over spray getting on them. (Can cause slipping), or, put a piece of masking tape on the back part of the cup that touches the rubber rollers on the Rotary Device.
  • Use rubber bands on the cup where it touches the rollers to improve grip on the mug to prevent slipping.
  • If you make a mistake on an expensive mug, it is suggested that Scotch Bright and some other lacquer thinner will take off the CerMark, just make sure you only scrub with the grain of the stainless.

Laser Engraving Wood

In spite of all the design, craftsmanship, and effort that is involved, woodworking is a tough business that generally has low margins. Consider laser engraving wood. You can dramatically increase the profit on the wooden products you design, create and offer.

laser engraving wood furniture

Woodworking in America is a business that goes back for centuries. It’s a core industry to our economy, supplying businesses and consumers with a wealth of well-designed wood products such as furniture, cabinets, flooring, tools, construction materials, picture frames – the list goes on.

During the last 100 years, wood product production techniques have remained roughly the same regarding the process – cutting, joining, and finishing. It’s time to look at the woodworking industry differently and find ways to innovate and make your business more profitable.

Personalizaton: A Growing Industry

Participate in the rapidly growing personalization trend in the U.S. and increase value when you add highly detailed, laser engraved graphics and text. Consumers love to see their name, personal image, or business logo on the products they buy. Additionally, laser engraving on wood is a great way for a business to brand products with their logo or company name and information.

laser engraved woodWood product producers have yet to capitalize on the personalization trend because machines aren’t yet adopted as a production tool in the woodworking industry. Laser engraving wood can occur on a finished product as the final step before delivery, or insert it into the workflow just before staining and clear coating.

Laser engraving wood is a profitable process you can incorporate into your business. It can double or triple the value of a product. From wood plaques, cabinets, panels and doors to granite, auto parts and iPhone cases, the emotional response to seeing a personalized product is tremendous. Consumers are willing to pay a significantly higher price for personalized laser engraved items.

Cremation Is a Gold Mine – If You Have the Tools to Dig

rising cremation trendAny market change can be the last nail in your businesses coffin if you ignore it. Especially fast changes such as the quickly growing cremation rate.

rising cremation rate stats

Ignoring the Industry Trend

Back in the late 90’s, when the cremation rate really began to climb, nearly everybody in the death care industry ignored it. Fast forward 20 years and the industry is now seeing the harsh repercussions from the fast growing cremation trend, the national average now sitting at over 45%.

The funeral industry is seeing a loss in revenue, a cremation service done by funeral home averages $3000, while a traditional funeral cost with a casket averages $7000. Some consumers are opting for a direct cremation, which requires minimal service from a funeral director and results in little to no revenue for the funeral home.

cremation or burial?Cemeteries are also being affected. They’re actually seeing where the future of cremation is headed before hand. Because most cemeteries rely heavily on pre-need sales, they actually “pre-see” the cremation rate 10 to 20 years ahead of everybody else. Today, cemeteries have more people calling wanting to sell their plots than people who are calling wanting to purchase one.

The industry most affected by cremation are the traditional monument retailers.The rise in cremation and idea of spreading ashes has dramatically reduced total number of traditional monuments sold. Cemeteries are diversifying into monument sales to make ends meet, and funeral homes have began diversifying into monument sales to supplement their loss in revenue.

Cremation and Baby Boomers

So what or who is behind the fast growing cremation trend? Two words: Baby Boomers. Also known as the “Me” generation. A majority of your buyers are baby boomers planning for their loved ones or pre-planning for themselves. This generation of people are known for making their mark and choosing to do things differently. They have no problem resisting traditions and they want everything to do with them to be incredibly personalized and a show of self-expression.

Baby Boomers and Personalization

Boomers are seeking products and services that are more unique than ever. The idea of personalization has resulted in an explosion of unique offerings that are personalized to commemorate all of life’s precious moments and memories. The “Me” Generation, those born between 1946-1964, are spending more money on things they want, rather than things they need. They may not need a personalized casket or memorial but when they see how it can capture their life and memories, they will want one. Read about ultra-personalized Tribute Memorials.

Why Your Business Needs a Laser Engraving Machine

why your business needs a laser engraving machine

In 2011, Coca Cola launched its “Share a Coke” campaign and for the first time in a decade the company saw a drastic increase in sales. What made this campaign so popular? Coke banked on the idea that people find personalization irresistible. Everyone wants their personal touch on something, whether it is a can of Coke, a pocket knife or a special keepsake for a loved one. With the AP Lazer’s patented ‘open architecture’ design and high power laser beam you can add personalization to nearly any material. Size and weight no longer matter. Add value to the products you offer with a custom laser engraving.

You Can Control Your Own Destiny

Stop outsourcing your laser work. By adding a laser machine to your current business you can have more control of your products. You no longer have to wait for weeks on end for laser work to be completed by someone else. You can keep the profits in-house. You will be able to offer shorter turn-around times by cutting out the middle man. You are in full control and don’t need to rely on anyone else.

laser machine testimonial“Every business in every industry can benefit from AP Lazer. We can now etch anything we want into the parts that we create. As a result of purchasing an AP Lazer, our company’s reputation, orders, and credibility has increased in a few short months.”

-Tim Norman of XYZ Machining, Inc., AP Lazer  machine owner

Sky High ROI

An AP Lazer machine is a relatively small investment for a high return on investment as the personalization payoff is massive. Retailers from all industries will agree that a personalized item means a little more effort upfront, with a higher profit margin in the long run. People of all ages love to see their names or something personal on a product because it makes them feel special and unique.  We also offer financing, so if your business isn’t certain it can spend the cash upfront for a brand new laser machine it can do it over time.

Take a look at this example: The SN4836 AP Lazer leases for around $800/month. Specifically, in the death care industry, the average photo montage engraving revenue is $1,000. For example, one four photo engraving per month will pay the monthly lease for the laser machine and still leave you with profit. Imagine the profit you could make if you could sell just three photo engravings a month! Below, you will see a five photo montage on a 24’x12”x2” marker that retailed for $2,995 with a gross profit margin of $2,800. That is quite a few lease payments paid for by a single engraving.laser engraved granite

Diversify into New Markets

You don’t need to specialize in other markets, but get your feet wet by offering other products and services alongside your current products and services. You can add value to everyday items with your AP Lazer. From large to small, size and weight are not an issue. A few ideas for great markets to explore include awards, personalized gifts, donation bricks, signage, pet personalization, and more. Advertising is quite easy with a laser machine as it can do the advertising for you.

Add completed engravings to your company website or Facebook page and create a showroom of product offerings in your storefront. If possible, operate your AP Lazer machine where customers can see it. When people see the spark produced with the AP Lazer machine, their imagination is ignited and personalization possibilities become endless. Americans love personalized gifts and are always looking for products with a slightly different touch – and will pay top dollar for them.

Finally, the most important reason – Lasers are awesome!

Lasers may even be considered one of the most wonderful things that man has ever invented.  They can permanently mark many different materials and transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. AP Lazer engraving and cutting machines are easy to learn, easy to operate, and even easier to build profits!
