Who We Are
This website is owned and operated by The Louisiana Hobby Guy L.L.C., hereafter referred to as, The Louisiana Hobby Guy – YouTube Link | Website Link
We are a small team of degreed graphic designers who focus on creating laser engraving graphics. All graphics that are for sale on this website were either designed by The Louisiana Hobby Guy, or one of the graphic arts team, purchased with resale rights from another designer or website, or are public domain and have no copyright, as are many of the free files you’ll find on this website.
Rich, The Louisiana Hobby Guy, is himself a minor degreed graphics artist, and has over 250,000 designs in his portfolio over the last 25 years. Many of those designs are being redesigned by the team to be used on a laser for publication to this website. He has also published more than 50,000 of these designs to other graphic websites on the Internet over the years. Every design created or edited by the design team is sent to Rich for testing and approval prior to posting it for sale on this website. He then runs the file on a laser and makes any corrections to ensure that every file sold here works as intended.
UNLIKE other websites, All files purchased here work on any laser engraver/cutter!
