WORKSHOP DETAILS & COSTS   

NOT A WEEKEND 'CRAFT' CLASS

This program began in May, 2001, with about 525 people, so far, having come to learn the amazing and lucrative skill.  All classes through January, 2020, were in hotel conference rooms.

 

It teaches you how to create a business around your hand-engraving.  Some make it a productive part-time activity, using it only when they want, or have time to personalize their own gifts to friends and family. Others are more serious about structuring a small part-time business, aggressively promoting their skill.  Then, there are the retired, and near-retired who want and need to develop a steady and reliable stream of extra income.  

FULL TIME OR PART TIME....YOUR CHOICE

So....you can take what you learn and polish it to provide an amazing income if that's your interest and goal.  One hundred to two hundred dollars per hour is routine for most of us who do small jobs for sizeable fees that produce income in that range....and even more sometimes.  For example....personalizing the back of a man's wrist watch that you might charge $50. for 10 minutes of engraving.  With 60 minutes in an hour, you used 1/6 of an hour for fifty bucks.  That is the rate of $300. per hour.  Likely you'd never have 6 watches at one time to engrave, but you earned at that RATE for the one you did.

YOUR INVESTMENT CAN COME BACK QUICKLY

When you are deciding whether or not it is worth the investment of approx $3600. for the Workshop and equipment, know that those who apply what they learn both from the engraving standpoint AND the marketing ideas discussed in every class, benefit greatly. Many get their entire investment back within a year.  Some much, much sooner.

WHAT COMES TO YOU FOR ENGRAVING

A major part of engravers' income is from individuals who bring bottles, knives, guns, crystal, and a long list of other items for personalization.  Jewelry stores, laser engravers, and trophy shops CANNOT engrave some items that freehand engravers can.  With samples and the right approach to those stores, students will get referrals from those firms that cannot do the work their customers bring them. You'll have a highly marketable skill and NO competition.  Learn how to make it all work and how to earn as you've never earned before.
