Question Embroidery or Engraving?

Went to a NBM show to look at a Tajima TFMX-1501 and got interested in sublimation, then decided I would rather get into laser engraving.
Dont have the money for both, and the wife said which do you think would be more profitable.

Engraving or embroidery?

follow your passion... but while there may be more money per piece in engraving I would still think that it is easier to sell and therefore make money in embroidery.. a more "known" medium.

Thanks for the suggestions. The thing about a laser is it can do glass, wood, marble, acrylic, even you kitchen cabinets or your house.

Ah well, let a little more time pass so the wife can get over me just buying a 80w laser.
I still want a Tajima.

I say engraving! It's way more useful, cause of the amount of surfaces you can do.

When I saw the Tajima's at the NBM show I really wanted one, but when I saw JDS's catalog and the enormous amount of materials that can be engraved or cut I decided I will give it a try.

It is scheduled to be delivered this thursday.
