S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • March 2018 • 79 Commercial sheet rock is always 5/8" thick, so we had that much depth to play with. Fortunately, our little wall pierc- ing studs didn't hit any hidden nails or screws, which would have been a prob- lem requiring cutting off the offending "nail/stud." The whole installation took about 30 minutes, not counting drive time. Jobs like this are fun and simple to produce using a laser and are quick and efficient (i.e. "profitable") since there is little prep work, no painting or pow- der coating. Also, the work can be done totally in-house, so no waiting for sub- contractors or having to pay one. The final result was a very happy customer, who had left the details up to us, which meant using our shop's laser as a CNC cutting machine, which in some mate- rials, especially acrylics, it does quite well. SDG The final product looked somewhat expensive and elegant, but was really a simple job using common sign shop materials, a laser cutter, and a minimum of labor.
