Greetings:

Thank you to everyone that filled out our quarterly survey. We are still going over the results. If you still wish to fill out the survey and misplaced the email with the link, just email me to let me know and I can resend it to you. (laseru@laserbits.com)

Some of the best ideas come from.....you! I want to thank our subscriber, Vicki, for coming up with a great idea. She noticed (as I had) that our internal forum and discussion board is underused. She suggested that I add some new categories. I have added in Wedding Gift Ideas and Mother's Day/Father's Day Ideas. If you have any more suggestions for getting more traffic to our forum...please share. Now this goes nicely with my planned topic for our April Newsletter - read on!

Laser Spotlight

Each month we will showcase an item, product or skill from LaserU. We will give a summary of the item and provide links for more information. This month we will look at Mother's Day Magnets from our Project Center.

These magnets were engraved in mirrored acrylic. Each year at our booth in Las Vegas, mirrored acrylic gets SO many comments, oohhh, aahhs and "I didn't know this existed" type comments. And I think, "I knew it existed and that it is fabulous!" So, I have thought of a very practical way to use this spectacular material. The acrylic is engraved from the back and it is a cast acrylic so it will engrave a frosty white. Just get some adhesive magnetic strips from Target or Walmart, cut them and apply them to the back to turn them into magnets!
