Why settle for the usual presents of candy or flowers when you can give them something that will remind them of you every day? We took a simple (and inexpensive) mirror from IKEA named MALMA and enhanced it with a personalized engraving. Words of love, understanding, encouragement, or motivation will surround your loved ones when they look at it, reminding them that they are thought of.
- MALMA Mirror from IKEA or any other mirror with a wooden frame
- Speedy 100
- 40 watts
- 2.0 inch lens
For our sample, we found a love poem, but you can also use motivational sayings, quotes or personal anecdotes—or let your inner bard loose and write your own prose! Simply enter the text in the CorelDraw template and, if necessary, adjust the font size.
Send the file with your own poem or motivational saying to the laser. We have worked on the Speedy 100 with 40 watts of laser power and used the following parameters:
Power: 30% - Speed: 70% - Frequency: 500 ppi - Air Assist: ON
Clean the mirror off, wrap it and give it to the lucky recipient.
- Glue a ribbon onto the back of the mirror to be able to hang it up
with a big bow.
- Engrave words of motivation to encourage someone keep reaching
for their goals.
- This idea can also be used for other occasions such as birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, weddings, and more
