FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Q- How does laser engraving work?
A- A laser is a light-amplifying device that produces a highly focused beam of coherent light. This focused beam vaporizes the material it contacts. A computer sees the engraving machines as another printer and controls the path of the beam, the power and the speed at which the laser moves across the material being engraved. The advantages of the laser over a mechanical cutter are many.
Q- What's the largest piece you can engrave?
A- Our machine can engrave pieces as large as 24 " x 36 ". We cannot feed through longer solid materials as the machine is not designed for feed through as a safety precaution. Material such as leather and cloth can be draped down in our machine and moved through which enables us to engrave such material in nearly any length.

Q- I have a wood piece to be laser engraved. What do I need to do to prepare the wood for engraving?
A- Your piece needs to be prepared through its final sanded finished and the surface sealed. The laser engraving produces a smoky residue which would stain an unsealed surface and further sanding may mar the laser engraved image. With the wood sealed any residue simple cleans off with a damp cloth. We clean the surface for you after laser engraving. A clear coat of lacquer works well as a sealer. Paint may be laser engraved as well. We do ask that should you seal the surface with anything other than lacquer that you provide a sample piece for testing to us.
