2021 has been a tough year…
and in the midst of higher regulation, distribution holdups, higher prices on material, and a continuing “pandemic,” I started a small business right in the heart of Cochise County, AZ. I have a vision to steel the west, providing custom metal cuts and custom engraving on all types of material to the whole county.
From my first custom metal cut, made for my Aunt Amy, to my first sign hanging and big entry-way sign made for DreamCatcher Inn at Chiricauhua. My clients have made the difference for this business.
I wasn’t going to start a business. I started offering to make custom metal signs because I needed to support the ministry my team does in Willcox. As a result, all the profits from CCC go to support youth and families in need and providing a safe space for youth during the week. I have invested and built very quickly, going from only offering custom metal signs and decor to now also offering custom engraving on almost anything, including firearms. I even created my first hybrid sign, made using both cutting and engraving techniques.
I have expanded my clientele from Willcox to Tucson, Sierra Vista, Douglas, and AP.
In 2022, I’m hoping to begin servicing the ranches, farms, and vineyards in the area–offering not only cut products but services like live engraving, sign maintenance, and installation.
My commitment to my clients is quality service at a fair price.
Not only that, I want you to have the custom cut signs, decor, and more you love–one of a kind pieces you are proud to display and say, “I have a Cannon Cut.”
With your help, we can steel the west. Here’s what I mean. My philosophy of business is rooted in Scripture, particularly the messianic vision of the Prophets and their fulfillment in Christ. In Matthew’s Gospel, Christ taught that the kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that will overtake the world. In Revelation 21, He taught that the glory of the world would be brought into the kingdom of heaven. In essence, the earth we cultivate now will be the inheritance of kingdom people forever. I don’t believe God is destroying the earth. Instead, I believe He promised not to (cf. Genesis 8:21-22). I believe our labors on this earth are God’s renewing hands through which He is creating a forever inheritance for Christ and those who are in Christ. When I craft, and when we all cultivate the earth by whatever it is we do, we are cultivating the earth that the saints will live on forever with Christ, a vision that I even recently engraved on my own tactical rifle–a tool to be used for cultivation, not primarily a weapon used for destruction.
I pray all of my clients to receive work that glorifies God and edifies humanity, which is being redeemed through the blood of the Christ. I want to serve you well and fairly.
Because I want to continue to serve you, I want to offer all of our clients (those who have placed an order by the end of 2021) a $10 engraving credit and a 10% off coupon to be used on one product. You don’t have to do anything. Just let me know you want to use your credit or coupon when you make your next order. Thank you for making CCC a success.
Since I have received most of my business by word of mouth referrals, I simply ask you to share this story, share pictures of our products, tell others about our products and services, and please leave a review on my new Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CannonCraftCuts/
Thank you for inviting me to be a part of the Wild West Fest next year. I’ll see you there.
Merry Christmas. May Christ who condescended to imperfect humanity bless you in every way. May His kingdom come and will be done on this earth as it is in Heaven. Amen.
