About

Sharif Pendleton, founder of Philadelphia Laser and Industrial Design, standing at the checkout counter in his retail store surrounded by various well made products.

Philadelphia Laser & Industrial Design
is a retail store and creative lab inside Cherry Street Pier in Philadelphia.

"Classic Décor Made Fresh" 

We use traditional handmade techniques & innovative technology to make and sell atypically clever, beautiful and functional goods that include tongue-in-cheek accessories, innovative artwork and pop culture-infused décor. And, we offer quality custom laser cutting and engraving services. 

We aim to develop a creative eco-system that demystifies the making process, democratizes customization and promotes the idea that shopping small, diverse creative businesses is the best way to find quality unique gifts and goods. In addition to our own in-house made goods, we collaborate with and carry the work of ~5 other makers, all of whom come from traditionally underserved communities. 

Philadelphia Laser & Industrial Design (a.k.a. PLAID) was founded in 2017 by Sharif Pendleton, a self-professed nerd who asks too many questions. He's an ever curious artist and designer obsessed with creating products and processes that solve problems for people and industries. Previously, Sharif founded Masters of None - the precursor to Philadelphia Laser & Industrial Design.
