Wood is an attractive matrial to laser cut or engrave due to good surface discoloration as well as the increased depth compared to other materials. Grayscale images and photos look beautiful when etched into most hard or soft wood surfaces.
Acrylic sheets are typically used to cut and engraving gifts awards, signs or plaques while extruded acrylic works best for letters and signs since it cuts smooth and clean leaving a glass like edge quality. The range of colors include black, white, pastel, and fluorescent to name a few.
CO2 laser machines can help further personalize each of these items by cutting or engraving designs, logos, or text into the leather. The quality of the final imprint depends on the quality of the artwork itself. The best formats for leather are vector or a high resolution JPG file.
Many glass objects are cylindrical but can still be etched through the use of a rotary attachment. This can be purchased in addition to any our Laser machine and will enable you effectively rotate the item as the laser etches your custom design.
