With Father’s Day fast approaching, help your customers ditch that boring old necktie for dad this year. Using your laser cutter and plastic sheet stock, you can create decorative patterns for a flexible finished tie.
Take it up a notch and use a metallic plastic for some additional bling or throw a magnetic badge attachment on the back and you’re good to go. You can even experiment with cutting patterns on different materials to produce a flexible creation of your own.
And to keep the fun going after the holiday, these custom laser-cut ties also make a super addition to photo booths, selfie stations, bachelor parties, and more.
