Laser Engraving

Laser engraving is the process of using a laser beam to engrave, mark or cut various materials. With this process, no machinery touches the surface of the material, just the laser beam of light. The laser beam is deflected by mirrors and projected on to the surface of the material being engraved. The heat generated from the laser beam removes, marks or cuts the material.

In order to get the graphic, photo or text onto the material, it is sent from the graphics software (CorelDraw in our case) to the engraver, similar to a document being sent to a printer.

This engraving process can be used on a variety of materials, including wood, acrylic, fabric, glass, coated metals, ceramic, leather, granite, marble and anodized aluminum. Have a gift idea? Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have about engraving certain materials.
