Well, we have ALL the answers below and if you can’t find the answer to your question email events@aslanbrewing.com.

 

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS:


Let’s start by asking, why should I do this?

Because it’s our Two Year Anniversary, and it’s cool and we want to celebrate with your art on our walls! Also, The Foundry is right in our neighborhood, they're local, and their staff is incredible. Their space offers high-tech equipment that we’ll be using to make our NEW MENUS (scroll all the way down for a sneak peek) and we love collaborating with other local businesses.  Have you ever used a 120 Watt Epilog Fusion Laser Cutter? Well, get ready cuz you will!  


What should I make?

Your SPIRIT ANIMAL. Whether it’s simple and elegant or outrageous and unique, we want to showcase what our community is made of.


How do I make my unique SPIRIT ANIMAL art piece?

Either scan a hand drawn, painted, or photographed image and put it on a USB drive. Or, if you already have an amazing graphic on file put that bad boy on a USB drive and walk it down to the Foundry to create your SPIRIT ANIMAL art piece. Check out our example below:

What do I need to bring?

The simple answer: Put your image on a USB drive, in a .jpg form, or vector file. We scanned our hand-drawn image at 600dpi, put it on a USB drive and walked it down to the Foundry. Once we got there the staff guided us and educated us on how to use the laser cutter and bam!

120 Watt Epilog Fusion Laser Cutter. Whoa!? Right? Is it like sharks with lasers on their head? No, but it’s way safer.
