About Us

In the heart of the COVID-19 lockdowns, a visionary idea was born. Allison Kirschbaum, a lifelong resident of Southern Illinois, recognized the need for personalized, high-quality items that could be delivered right to people's homes. With a deep desire to connect with others and provide top-notch products, Allison founded Kirsch & Baum Custom Laser Designs, initially as a home-based business. As the business thrived, we needed a larger space to create and showcase our custom-made laser engraved items, which led us to downtown Carterville. Partnering with another local business, Wit & Wisdom, we expanded our offerings to include a wide range of laser-engraved creations and Carterville apparel.

Our specialty lies in crafting unique, personalized items, including gifts, signs, awards, trophies, and more, with each piece tailored to our customers' desires. This commitment to quality and community has been the cornerstone of our success.

Today, we're thrilled to announce our newest venture. Kirsch & Baum Custom Laser Designs is stepping into the online space with a dedicated store, tailored to cater to fellow makers and laser enthusiasts. Our online store will offer top-notch crafting supplies, tools, and exceptional service, empowering you to fuel your creative endeavors. Stay tuned for a new way to access the same quality and care that have made Kirsch & Baum a trusted name in personalized creations. We can't wait to share this next chapter of our story with you.
