How Much do I Love these Lasers?

In 2015 I wrote about implementing a laser positioning system by Lase-it.  It seems everyday we have some sort of project which reminds me how happy I am that we made this investment.  Today we are printing these uber expensive (and very nice for us distance runners) paneled singlets.  Precision placement of the “Rebels” text on the biased panel, not a…

I’m really excited about a number of the new and/or…

It Glows!
