Meet Norman, Our New Live-Events Laser Engraving Machine

The MakeLab family has an exciting new member — a sleek new event-ready laser engraver — and we’ve named it Norman. Norman joins our eight 3D printers, and makes our new Edible Instagram Photo Booth and Laser Bow Tie Bar interactives possible.

Fashionable For Live Events

Norman is a laser cutter which we’ve modified for live events, trade shows, and marketing activations. Appropriate for any event, Norman has been powder coated for a sleek but sophisticated look, accessorized with interior lighting and specialized bed plates to attract attention to his work and streamline our process. Norman also travels in style, with a custom designed road case, making appearances at events in Toronto and across the continent (shout out to Boxer Custom Cases).

New to Customizing Event Swag

We’re always on the hunt for new takeaways we can laser engrave at events — from bottle openers to bow ties, bananas to baked goods. A big thanks to Don’t Call Me Cupcake in Kensington, who has been generously supplying Norman with all the cupcakes and cookies he's been going through during the experimental phase. We can now add these beautiful and delicious treats to our tried and true laser-etched Macarons (from the famous Nadège Patisserie in Toronto). We’re super excited about the Edible Instagram Photo Booth, and have more event concepts in the oven.

Experimenting with New Materials, Foods, and Fun

We’re working on our holiday season interactives, and will be rolling out new offerings over the next few months. Pop yourself on our email newsletter and we’ll keep you in the loop!
