Laser at work: Making it happen

By SignCraft Magazine

Posted on Monday, November 2nd, 2015

Pierre Hoffmann’s approach to the graphics business is simple: Find out what the client needs or wants, then make it happen. One of the tools in his “make it happen” toolbox is his laser engraver/cutter.

His company, Creative Indulgence, is in Redondo Beach, California. The list of services on their aptly named website, www.like2create.com, says “Signs, Digital Printing, Engraving, Lighting and Creative Projects.” The term “Creative Projects” is a great catchall term for the variety of work he handles from his 1400-sq.-ft. workspace with a staff of three.

Along with signage of all types, Pierre does graphic and web design. He also does restaurant interiors, custom laser-engraved and laser-cut work, t-shirts, awnings—and projects for TV and movies, including lighting.
