WELCOME TO OUR BUSINESS FROM THE SHAVER'S (Dale, Karen, Cody & our 3 Golden Retrievers - Molly, Annie Oakley & Duke "John Wayne")

This is a business dream that my husband and I have had for over 20 years. We saw the Epilog Laser in action at a Woodworking show in Portland, Oregon and have wanted to get one and start a business with it ever since. It's an amazing machine that can engrave on wood, acrylic, glass, coated metals, ceramics, delrin, cloth, leather, marble, matboard, melamine, paper, mylar, cardboard, rubber, wood veneer, fiberglass, painted metals, tile, plastic, cork, MDF, anodized aluminum and twill. It can also cut over half of these items. It can mark bare metal, stainless steel, brass, and titanium.

My husband & I have prayed about this business and when would be a good time to start it. We have had our ups and downs over the years that prevented us from taking that step. Now is the time! Our son, Cody has been instrumental in getting this business off the ground. He has taken the reins and built this website while learning the struggles of what it takes for a start up company. He is very good with people so he will be doing our sales and marketing which will include all the social media (which he knows way more than his mom and dad). Dale & I will continue to work our regular jobs for other people in hopes of joining Cody full time in this business.

I have worked in the corporate world for more than 35 years as a Controller, Finance Director, Accounting Manager, Senior Accountant, etc. You might say, I know the numbers and the in's and out's of running a business.

My husband has worked in the steel industry, construction and as a custodian in school districts. He owned his own landscaping, pressure washing and tractor work business for over 12 years. You might say that he is a jack of all trades.

Dale & I grew up, got married, had Cody and adopted our daughter, Shelby in Oregon. We lived mostly in the valley from Salem to Eugene and places in between. We had taken road trips through Idaho, Wyoming and Montana and fell in love with the beauty in those states as well as the beauty in Oregon. We decided to move to Montana in 2012 to experience another part of this beautiful country. All of our extended family still live in Oregon & Washington, so we do go back for visits. We stayed in Montana for 5 years(1 year in the Red Lodge area and 4 years in Kalispell). We love the outdoors, but it was hard to make a living there working for others. We then moved to Northern Idaho in 2017 to have better opportunities for our kids regarding school options and work options for all of us. We have lived in Hayden & Coeur d'Alene, but ultimately ended up buying a house in Post Falls in 2019.

Our goal is to build this business online so that we can live wherever we want to in a few years (providing we have good internet). We would eventually like to retire and leave the company to our son, Cody as he will be more than capable of running it by that time.

Our core belief is God, Family and Country! We have strong Christian beliefs & values and try to live our lives with God being the center of everything. We will run this business with those core beliefs in mind. We will treat our customers and employees like we would want to be treated! We enjoy the outdoors, camping, hiking, hunting, boating, fishing, off roading, target shooting and traveling. We enjoy taking our Golden's, because they love the outdoors and of course the water! Oh, and we can't forget how much they love fetching the ball!!
