But, you might be asking,what exactly is laser-cutting and engraving all about and above all, how does it work?

What Is Laser Engraving?

Laser engraving is put simply, the practice of using a laser to engrave on a varying array of surfaces.A laser-engraving machine has three main parts: a laser, a controller and a surface. The controller (a computer) controls the direction, intensity and speed of movement of the beam (which is emitted from a laser), to allow the laser to trace with it on the surface.

The beam, which is reflected off a series of mirrors, is guided across the surface by the laser,where it then burns and melts the material into the shape defined by the controller. Materials that can be cut with laser including wood, leather, acrylics, paper and card.

The type of products that can be produced by laser-cutting technology is vast – from small personal items such as badges and jewellery to promotional items for businesses including signs and stationery.

You can use Abode Illustrator or Inkscape to send us your designs, don’t worry if you need help – we have a step-by-step guide on our website.
