Some woods laser cut extremely well. The laser leaves a slightly dark to dark edge on the wood, this is removed by wiping or slightly sanding the edges.
The main woods we use are MDF and Birch plywood. We use laser quality birch ply, this contains a lighter resin glue than industrial plywood giving a better overall finish.
Most plastics laser cut very well, we can laser cut up to 10mm thick acrylic, leaving a polished finish on the edges that requires very little if any final machining.
Paper and card laser cut beautifully, we tend to use 300gsm card as this gives the best results, we can make wedding invites and paper cut art.
We use A4 6mm thick laserable grey rubber to produce rubber stamps, 6mm enables us to get more depth and detail than with the standard 3mm.
We use 300gsm Mylar film for stencils, it is very hard wearing, washable and reusable.
Please note we are unable to laser cut metal.
