Laser Etching & Router Cutting

Tesla Dash - Etch

Every now and again we get to do a cool, left of field passion project.

Our client came to us looking for a special memorial piece to be completed on the dashboard of his Tesla Car. He had a very specific design in mind; so with the help of our creative team we were able to reproduce his vision. The piece was etched on to a Tesla Model 3 wooden dash, and then reinstalled in to the car.

This was a unique project that showcased a beautiful message, an endeavour we were delighted to be involved in. Take a look below at some of the beautiful photos our client Ben has taken of his Tesla.

“A tremendous thank you to the entire Potato Press team for professionally & rapidly executing on such a delicate project. Incredibly accommodating and experienced, Rod & the crew know very well the process of turning a unique idea into reality. Looking forward to any excuse I might find to work with you guys again. Thankyou!” – Ben

Nautique – Marketing Awards 2019

Once again we have had the pleasure to work with Nautique on their 2019 international and domestic marketing awards. For this year’s awards, we have based the design around a custom 3D acrylic feature encased in a black stained timber. The 3D acrylics create the numbers “2019” to recognize the corresponding event year.  The red acrylic on the black timber creates a nice contrast and allows the color to “pop”. Clear and chrome acrylics are also featured on this award to bring an industrial touch which ties into the mechanical nature of the Nautique brand.  

Are you looking for a trophy to pack some punch?  Contact us today to see how we can add depth to your next piece.

QLD Government – Recognition of Excellence 2019

The Department of Housing and Public works have a number of divisions in which they recognise excellence. The ‘ROE’ Awards recognise people and companies within the community who are doing great things.

We were asked to incorporate some of the clients own materials in to this trophy. Our design team were able to feature the Department of Housing and Public works’ own stone. Pairing the stone with 30mm thick acrylic,  adding laser etching in combination with UV Imaging , has resulted in a stylish and personalised trophy.

By incorporated a natural substrate such as stone, the awards each have their own personality.

The trophies came out looking awesome!

Feel free to reach out and discuss what we can incorporate in to your design.

Botero – Chopping Boards

Last year we were lucky enough to help out with some laser etched promotional boards for Botero. We think the laser etching looks great against a classic timber finish.

The Botero logo seen here has been laser etched on to a variety of serving boards, to be sold within the Botero store. This technique allows us to stay within the natural style of the brand, while also remaining food safe. We believe these boards make wonderful gifts and further promote the business.

Botero Coffee Roasters are passionate about all things coffee & tea. Located in Maclean, NSW, they believe in collaborating with passionate and hard working people.

The boards look awesome, and also we just love their coffee!

Yokohama - HARD CHARGER GT3 Cup Challenge

We were lucky enough to work with Yokohama USA on another batch of awards at the end of last year. We’ve incorporated a strong mechanical presence into these awards as well as keeping a sleek overall look.  

We have used clear acrylics to create a 3D design effect of the track map; the clear acrylics create an almost holographic look. The strong red and black colours dominant the award and tie directly back into the brand. We have used a black timber effect that allows the stark white track titles to ‘pop’. The award is finished off with stainless steel bolts and a silver mirror acrylic to mimic a chrome effect to bring an mechanical feel to the award.

Botero - Coffee Roasters

Some artworks just work perfectly when laser etched, and the guys over at Botero Coffee Roasters have just one of those logos that looks great when imaged on to a nice timber.

The Botero family began in 2003 with Clarence Valley local Danny Young. A man with an eye for detail, a keen palate, and big ideas.
Together, with the help of his partner Jilly, they created what we now know as Botero. Today, they are still located in the Clarence Valley, collaborating & creating with a strong team of likeminded & passionate people to deliver the highest quality coffee and tea to their customers.

These outdoor signs will surely catch peoples eyes!

Spiritbuild Business cards

Our ability to work with lasers means we can do things with finer details. These natural hardwood timber business cards made from east coast blackbutt look great and match the aesthetic of the team over at Spirit Build.

 

Fish-A-Palooza Timber Boxes

Some people go all out for their mates! These custom joinery gift boxes for a fishing trip look great. Using solid Tasmanian oak with UV printed elements to add that personalised touch.

Campbelltown City Council - Australia Day Awards

Campbelltown City Council have become a great client of ours that we have worked with multiple times over the years and this year we were very happy to be making their Australia Day Awards for 2019.

Inspired by some of our encapsulated awards, our designers came up with a unique look for the trophies showing a mixture of encased timbers and exposed edges. The base has cut throughs to show coloured acrylics coming through and is finished with our signature laser etching.

With over 86 offices located across the United States, US Legal Support is regarded as one of the leading providers of litigation services in America. US Legal Support contacted us to create some one-of-a-kind trophies for their company again this year.

For the design of the trophy we incorporated their logo into the shape of the product, a standout feature that is very unique compared to other shapes we have made. Then layering up with timber and printed acrylic the final product is a one of a kind piece!
