BULK ORDER: Coasters for Laser Engraving Business

Toggle fullscreen Fullscreen button


with every small business there's a certain  level of risk that you take today's video is  

all about risk and finding out whether or not  i wasted my money or came out ahead in the end

hey everybody my name is sam and welcome back to  samcraft in today's video i'm going to be showing  

you guys something that kind of relates to a  bunch of other small business videos i've produced

this up and see whether i was successful  or this was a big waste of time and money

very very rough it's been taped multiple times it  has been re-taped multiple times squished around

all right let's go ahead and open this thing up  i'll start by cutting the packing slip off the box
