DC Laser's creed is and always has been, "Good Service, High Quality, Fair
Price". This has earned us a good clientele and we continue to earn their
business and hopefully yours.
The materials we work with are varied and interesting. Some of the materials
we engrave and etch are wood, acrylic, leather, paper, glass, mirror (front
or back), stone, granite, marble, cardboard, bricks, pavers, slate, crystal,
motorcycle chrome and the list goes on.
Some of the more interesting materials have been bananas
and apples for a catering company's center piece...
chocolate for a candy shop. Butter (refrigerated) for a restaurant and even pumpkin pies
for seasonal gifts. Never know what the
future will bring but it is always interesting.
The following pages on our web site will give you a small example of some of the
things we do. It is not a complete listing as that would require too many
lengthy pages. Please contact us and we will be glad to assist you in your
Fund Raising Bricks
A few years ago Doug and Charleene Novic realized that
their "retirement" funds would not be sufficient for retirement. Doug is
a long time carpenter, cabinetmaker and always enjoyed CNC programming
for wood working shops since 1993. The more difficult it was the more he
enjoyed it. Decades of working with AutoCAD was very beneficial to
programming as well. It seemed logical to express his creativity and
enjoyment programming CNC laser equipment.
Charleene is a school teacher and most importantly a
visionary. It is her vision and support that has pushed Doug to go that
extra step. Together they took a deep breath, gulped and threw their
savings into the business and the equipment it required.
It started as "Blue Duck Laser" and they exhibited and sold
their wares in Arts & Crafts shows as much as they could and always with
success. As you could imagine this was tiring work combined with their
full time jobs and would be exhausting at times.
Slowly other businesses learned of their services and
sub-contracted their work to them. These were (and still are) sign
shops, security firms specializing in loss prevention, motorcycle
customizers, artists, contractors, architects, property maintenance
professionals and more. Because of their expanding clientele "DC Laser
of Maryland, llc" was formed and chartered in the state of Maryland. The
"DC" stands for Doug and Charleene but because of the proximity to
Washington, DC it also lends itself nicely to that interpretation as
They are getting close to retirement now and look forward to
managing and working DC Laser for the rest of their lives. It is not
work if you enjoy it.
