Laser-cut paper design contest

We are a generous bunch at (and modest to, obviously) so we offered you the chance to win a free print-run of your very own laser-cut creation!

Plenty of designs we were received, all with eye-catching, innovative and unique styles. 

After much deliberation we have carefully selected a shortlist of entries, with one of these designs winning a free print-run!  

Help the judges with their final selection by commenting which one you think most deserves the prize. The winner will be announced in the next few weeks!

And remember, please stay tuned in the New Year for exciting laser-cutting announcements!

The top 10 are:

Alison H


Charles B

Dawn M

Ella R

Gill S

Greg D

Jess P

Laura G

Lizzie A

Samantha Q


Good luck and thank you to everyone who entered! 


*These are PDF examples of their designs. The actual artwork files to create laser-cut images differ a little from these, and both were submitted as entry to the contest.
