Laser Cutting and Engraving

Laser Cutting and Engraving

With our high speed laser cutter we can cut or engrave intricate shapes or patterns in a variety of materials, including most plastics, wood, MDF, card, paper, leather, fabrics, etc. We can then spray the finished product any colour you like. The level of detail can be extremely fine and we can even engrave monochromatic photographic images on to a variety of surfaces.

Debut
Debut The client needed two versions of this sign, in a hurry, for a major marketing event. The background colour had to be right and the letters had to be cut from solid acrylic for long term durability.
Engraved Slate
Engraved Slate Produced as part of a series of awards, the engraved logos and small lettering on this piece of natural slate demonstrates the fine detail that can be achieved through the laser engraving process.
Laser-cut Wedding Invitations
Laser-cut Wedding Invitations Our laser cutter can cut very fine detail in card as can be seen from the cut-through decorative motif on these wedding invitations. The design comprises this card outer layer featuring the couple’s initials and a paper inner layer with all the detailed information.
Jigsaw Puzzle
Jigsaw Puzzle This custom designed jigsaw puzzle is one of a set of four that were made as an educational exercise for children visiting a historic castle. The puzzle pieces are created from a decorative floor motif in one of the castle rooms.
Cut & Engraved Acrylic
Cut & Engraved Acrylic These various samples illustrate the different effects the laser cutter can produce with clear acrylic. Crisp lines, frosted finishes, and intricately cut detail can all be combined to create interesting and attractive objects.
Laser Engraved Conference Folder
Laser Engraved Conference Folder We used our laser cutter to engrave this company’s logo onto a batch of conference folders to be used as promotional gifts. The client opted for laser-engraving because it produces a subtle, textured finish that has a higher quality feel than conventional surface printing.
