Recently I was asked if I could custom design and make wedding invitations for a friends big day.
Naturally I replied: I will.
After sitting down with the client and discussing their wishes I set to work on creating just that.
They had set a few things such as the date being incorporated an old castle theme and line work. The rest was up to creative expression.
Combining their first initials with the date and a castle logo was the first step. Then I combined that with the fine scroll work in the corners and the continuous line work to complete the front of the card.
On the inside of the card I also created an elegant scroll that not only presents the text but also holds the inner card in place.
Each card is made up of 2 parts. The outer white card was laser cut and the inner red card was printed, cut and glued into position.
This creates the contrast colour face of the card and allows for the red card to flow through the center.
These invites can be as simple or complex as you choose and it only limited by your imagination.

Recently I helped out cakes from jessica with a custom made fondant stamp for her cupcakes.
Jessica was donating 80 cupcakes to the Stichting Tess fondation for a fund raising event for kids with disabilities.
To make the cupcakes even better muzoo design helped out by making a custom made fondant stamp of the fondation logo
( A dolphin and a child)
As you can see it worked really well.
Muzoo design was happy to help out Cakes from jessica and Stichting Tess.

Few know but without the flexiblity and versillity of the laser cutter the home 3d printing revolution may have looked a lot different.
Scores of new 3d printer companies are popping up all over the globe but they all have one thing in common, that is they all use laser cutting to produce the parts required to construct a machine. The laser cutter is able to produce simple to complex components in varied materials and thickness with precision accuracy and cost effective speed, added to that the low cost of materials and you can start to see why the laser cutter is playing such an important role in this way of making things.
Like 3d printers, the laser cutter has also been around for some time but it’s only now combined with the interest of 3d printers that the laser cutter is starting to be used far more often than ever before. Strangely enough the people who build 3d printers are thinking in a 2d way, “How can I best make this 2d part to cut easily”.
(Now, this is not the most amazing video of all time, but it does clearly illustrate the power of laser cutting).
Building something 3d for 2d is a puzzle and it’s not always straight forward. You start with your vision and work back from there. Adding in locking systems in the forms of studs and holes, nuts and bolts, some electronics, stepper motors and some travel rods and “Bang” you have made yourself a 3d printer.
You often hear people say the 3d printer is amazing and it is, but you never hear that of the laser cutter.
Why is that?
Just remember next time you hear about a home built 3d printer, it was the laser cutter humming away in the background that made it all possible.

After a long awaited time, with the help of Santa are happy to announce that my laser cut christmas decortaions are finally available through my Etsy shop.
All the decorations are Handmade in the Netherlands with a nostalgic feel to them.
I got the inspiration for this decroations from the German Christams decorations my parents had when I was young. Now living in The Netherlands it was only a matter on time.
Each and everyone of my decorations are first designed my myself, first on paper and then on the computer. After I get them the way I like I cut out the intricute patterns on my beloved laser cutter.
Each decoration is then finished of with a red cotton hanging cord.
You can purchase single or multiple decorations which are then carefully packed in a brown paper bag, sealed with a seasonal ribbon and a hot wax stamp.
Also available through my etsy shop are a range of gift cards.
As it turns out, yes you can.
Why am I doing this to start with? A good question.
In one of my mad scientist moments while making the dinner last night I wondered “Could I laser engrave a cucumber”.
Yes, these are really things that go through my head.
Most people engrave stone, acrylic or glass but have we missed a great new opportunity here, this could a whole new way of branding products.
Next I am going to try a banana!
Hopefully a day or 2 after it will go brown an offset it by the stark yellow background.
This could be so cool!!
