By using focused laser beam, we are able to burn into the fabric, wood or leather. The final effect depends on several variables including fabric type.
Natural leathers etch really nicely with a dark brown/black burn effect. Please remember that designing large solid areas or thick fonts is not recommended. Since laser burns the leather you may observe some smudging especially on white and off white leather which is less coated than other leathers.
are made from synthetic fabric with a dye applied on top. White leatherlike burns into slightly yellowish color while others burn into dark brown.
Colibri fabric has it's color applied on top of white fabric. Laser etching burns away that fabric and unveils white color. The effect is really stunning. You may design beautiful fonts, patterns or even larger solid areas.
Due to uneven structure of the fabric, we do not recommend laser etching. On top of that, burning linens make your design look yellowish. Not everyone like this effect.
Natural Linens / Lux Linens
Even though natural linens / lux linens are smooth, laser etching burns them into yellow color. We don't like this effect too much.
HOW TO PREPARE:
We need a VECTOR FILE in .ai .cdr. or .svg format. We can't use bitmaps like JPG/ PNG even if you save them as .ai. Still a bitmap content inside.
There is an easy online converter to convert the JPG/PNG to VECTOR.
Please specify in the comments:
- Width of the laser etching
- Placement: front / back cover + visual center / right bottom etc.
Without these instruction we will have to email you. This will make the production longer.
