If your customers want to make a big impression outside, brick and stone engraving is the perfect service to meet their needs. When engraving on clay bricks using a CNC laser machine by AP Lazer, the surface the laser touches turns into hardened glass. This turns ordinary bricks into attractive and resilient outdoor aesthetic fixtures for homes, commercial buildings, offices, and public places. Personalized, laser-engraved bricks are a great way to fundraise, but there is also a high demand for custom landscaping stones and pavers that further open your engraving business to a new market.
