CAMIC designs co-owner Michael Caston announced today the opening of a new online store, www.crittergiftshop.com, to help animal rescue organizations and shelters raise money for their cause. The design firm uses state-of-the-art laser technology to create products for animal societies to use in fundraising. The products are intended for rescue groups, yet all pet lovers will enjoy them.
In the past decade, laser engraving has become an increasingly popular means of manufacturing and customizing products. Carbon dioxide lasers, the most popular laser type for product design, can produce fine details in a matter of seconds. This allows the manufacturer the ability to produce complicated designs that may take an artisan hours to complete.
CAMIC designs began using laser technology to make products for ballet companies to use in fundraising. These products are showcased in their first online store, www.nutcracker-gifts.com.
The new store, www.crittergiftshop.com, gives animal organizations the ability to customize products with whatever information they want at no cost. The site mainly consists of designs of dogs and cats, but will continue to develop new designs to include zoo animals, sea animals, small animals, wildlife, and even bugs for the animal lover in all of us.
