Epilog Laser Sample Club: Custom Ceramic Garden Markers

engraved ceramic tile


Spring has sprung and that means time for gardening! If you used plastic garden markers while planting your bulbs last year, unlike the bulbs, the markers may not have survived the winter.

Here we'll show you how to create custom ceramic tile garden markers that can withstand all the elements. These sturdry tiles can be used over and over and are great way to personalize private gardens or shared community gardening spaces!


Find full instructions in this month's Sample Club.
