Havoly came to be mostly by chance.
If you surround yourself with forward-thinking people and put time and effort into something you enjoy, chances are good things will happen. The owner, Casey, has always been a maker at heart with a passion for designing and woodworking. As a member of the local makerspace, The Ithaca Generator, he was given access to a wide array of tools and machines. Being around other passionate and creative makers in a room full of tools and machines is what ignited the flame that created Havoly.
What makes a c02 laser so spectacular?
The ability to take a design and engrave it on virtually any material with speed and precision in intricate detail. The laser not only engraves, it can also cut up to 1/4″ thick wood and 1/2″ thick acrylic. You may be surprised at how many different things you can make from just those two materials and a laser.
After the design is created, it’s all repeatable; the same design can be duplicated over and over. If you need 100 of the exact same thing, a laser will do it.
Why mainly wedding items?
A friend of Casey’s wanted a custom drop top guest book for her wedding, so he made one for her. She loved how it turned out and so did her guests. One of the guests asked if he could make one for her and he did. He put the items on Etsy and requests came for different variations of the guest books. From the start, it was wedding items that Havoly was kept busy with.
Havoly’s flagship items.
Beyond puzzles, our drop top guest books are also a customer favorite, with the most popular being the fall colored tree drop top.
We also frequently do custom work for people. We’ve done puzzles in the shape of the planet express ship from futurama, lighthouses, islands, ducks, and many more. We’ve also made drop tops in different shapes and tons of different shapes for the drop in pieces. The one that stands out the most is one with different navy airplanes as cutouts.
Havoly strives for growth.
We have been in business since 2015 and we have over 1000 nearly impeccable reviews, which we’re very proud of. It’s nice to see that people appreciate our hard work.
