Decorative Concrete Seminar Specials that Sing of Savings

As you invest in your decorative concrete business, you need to get the highest return on your money. Engrave-A-Crete can help you reach that goal.

Investing in quality Engrave-A-Crete tools and products are the foundation for the savings. Efficient work management, more safety, and fewer breakdowns all add up to more effective decorative concrete with a greater return on your time and money investment. Add to that quality tech support from someone who has ‘been in the trenches’ of decorative concrete and the value increases.

Attending our three day seminar featuring hands-on experience with the tools and other supplies while taking a project from blank concrete to beautiful is a great investment. The opportunity to train in a climate controlled environment where efficiency and safety are priorities is a great value because you go back to your customers with ability to use the quality tools. In addition, the reasonable tuition includes meals, snacks and assistance by the capable staff at Engrave-A-Crete seminar. Now tuition is headed toward the bargain side of the table.

Taking matters even closer to the bargain side, let’s look at the graduated Bring-A-Buddy deal for our March seminar.  One person can enroll at the regular fee and bring a buddy for a reduced price of $495. That’s a nice bargain and investment.

Finally, and right into the bargain basket…seminar students who make a $4,000.00 purchase will have one seminar tuition fee credited back. Call 800-884-2114 for details.

Engrave Any Design Into Concrete

At the Engrave-A-Crete Discovery & Training Seminar, you’ll learn decorative concrete techniques, tips & tricks, and you’ll also learn how to use the decorative concrete engraving tools from Engrave-A-Crete.

This includes the KaleidoCrete system.

Custom Design Decorative Concrete Engraving

KaleidoCrete can be used indoors or out, commercial or residential. The process includes changing the color of the concrete, then a pattern is actually engraved and cut into the hard concrete with a the Shark or Barracuda, and touch-up is done with the Wasp.

Concrete of any age can be changed to thousands of patterns and designs. Hundreds of borders and custom logos can be engraved into the concrete.

Existing concrete can look like glossy hexagon shaped marble tile, dull old clay bricks, or multi-hued flagstone.

An existing concrete entry way look like a southwestern rug. Carve a Celtic knot centerpiece in a circular driveway or accent borders with Egyptian hieroglyphs. The possibilities are virtually unlimited.

You’ll learn how to use:

  • Stylus Shark
  • Barracuda
  • Wasp
  • Templates

What to Expect at the Engrave-A-Crete’s 3 day Discovery and Training Seminar.

Students Running Mongoose Air

Every month, we invite a limited number of students to participate in our Discovery and Training Seminar held at our manufacturing and training facility in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Missouri.

If you are planning on attending a seminar in the future (our next starts tomorrow and is full, so you’ll have to wait till next time) we want you to know what to expect.

So, here is a short list of things you can expect of the seminar:

Students Practice Floor Preparation

You will get your hands dirty

At the Engrave-A-Crete Discovery and Training Seminars, you don’t just watch a presentation while sitting on a crowded set of bleachers, you actually get your hands on the tools and right in the fray of transforming multiple gray concrete slabs into beautiful works of art.

You’ll be responsible for the prep, stain, cutting, cleaning and sealing of every project. Of course, our decorative concrete experts will be leading and guiding you the whole way, but in the end, you create the projects that will then become part of your portfolio.

You will have your questions answered

We don’t just show you how to get the work to get your business up and going, we show you the best ways to structure, manage and market your business.

Farron our CFO teaches two sessions on your options for setting up and running your business for the best tax postion, and we have a team of experts to show you the best guerilla marketing techniques so you can have as much business as you can handle.

No topic or stone is purposefully left untouched or unturned. If you leave here with questions, you can always call us later if you need to.

Students Staiin Decorative Concrete

You will get fed

We know that a hungry student doesn’t retain much teaching, so we feed you a continental breakfast and home cooked lunch prepared by professional caterers, Wednesday through Friday and supper on Wednesday and Thursday evening.

So be sure to sign up for the next Discovery and Training Seminar, and be prepared for a great time of learning in a relaxing and delicious atmosphere. Then go home with confidence that you can be a successful decorative concrete contractor with Engrave-A-Crete training and ongoing tech support if you ever have any questions.
