Lucca is a wood and paper laser design shop/studio that was established by Lindsey Estes, whose father owns a machine shop in Sharonville. “He would teach me the art of putting logos on things,” Estes recalls from her childhood.“ In high school, I started creating all of my own products.”
In 2014, at 24 years old, she bought her own laser machines and launched Lucca Laser in her East Walnut Hills home to carry on her father’s legacy.
In 2019, Lucca outgrew their store on Main Street in OTR and moved to Findlay Market.
Now customers can come in during the day and pick out one of their custom boards, get it customized on the spot, shop for your food, and then come back.”
“I love Findlay Market; it’s such a great community,” Estes says. “I thought Lucca would be a cool little implementation into the market.
Lucca Laser’s retail sales comprise only 30 percent of total revenue. The rest stems from custom designs for local companies, such as Hotel Covington, Music Hall, Union Terminal, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, and Rhinegeist Brewery. “We have our own product line, but then we also develop many product lines for other companies.,” Estes says. “The possibilities of what we’re able to make are endless.”
