Just wondering if there was such an animal around anywhere. I don't want to spend $16K or more for something that I would use for my pens only. Seems like someone would make a small one that could be used by the mom and pop ww shops.

Hello Dennis,

There are engravers that are pretty small, not just in size but also in price. Most of them are table top versions.

At epilog you will be looking at the Mini Epilog.

At Pinnacle you will be looking at the V-Series.

At ULS you will be looking at the Versa Lasers.

Most ranging from right about $7,000 to over $12,000.

It is worthy of mention that if you limit the use of your machine to something specific, you won't make a return on your investment. In other words, consider the amount you think you could raise your pen prices and still sell--the amount of pens required to pay off the machine would take years of sales. This is where working out a production deal with a laser engraver would be most cost effective.
