Star & Bee in the June 2014 Kits from Polly Scraps

Ruth Bonser, owner of Polly Scraps, emailed me just a few days after I'd received my first shipment of the new acrylic for the laser cutter to ask if I had colors other than my previous standard clear plexiglas available. I was of course thrilled to tell her that she had a whole spectrum to choose from now! You'll find these designs, all by Wilna Furstenburg for Polly Scraps, in the June kits and add-ons. Along with the acrylic pieces there are also some adorable 2x2 wood tiles and a stencil, also from Wilna's artwork.

We're thrilled to be working with Elle again, and you can find her entire selection of wood veneers, all cut by Star & Bee, here on the Elle's Studio web site.

Cork, Colored Acrylic, and Upgraded Stencil Material!

After several weeks spent sourcing, testing, and preparing new materials for Star & Bee's laser cutting services, I'm excited to be able to reveal the newest additions to our product lineup!

I'll start things off with 3mm acrylic, which we're offering in 32 different varieties including opaque and transparent colors. Some of the colors, especially the reds, appear very similar in shade and vary more by opacity- something that doesn't show up well in a photograph.

There are 18 different colors available in opaque acrylic:

And 14 different colors available in transparent acrylic including neon pink, yellow, orange, green, and blue.

We also now offer laser cut cork and an upgraded stencil material that is much heavier and more opaque than what we've offered in the past. The cork also etches beautifully, as you can see on the engraved sample below.

And of course we will continue to offer laser cut wood as we always have, using a sturdy 1/16" stock that is lovely when used in its natural state and also perfect for wet mediums and altering.

If you're interested in learning more about Star & Bee's services, please email us at sales@starandbee.com. We would be delighted to work with you!
