Get to know laser cutting…
Laser cutting adds a whole new dimension in paper craft when it comes to adding the wow factor to your print. If you’re looking for precision when it comes to your design, laser cutting allows you to get super-intricate – from cutting out hand written text, to lace-like delicate designs or even cutting shapes and images from your print.
Laser cutting uses a process of burning paper (yes, there’s flames!) with precision lasers to cut your design – so it’s useful to note that the edges of laser cut designs have a very slightly burnished edge. If you choose to design on white card, you’ll notice this more, but we personally love the vintage feel that this adds to intricate designs.
Helpful hints: If you’re looking to laser cut text, remember that for filled letters, like ‘o’ and ‘a’ and ‘b’ for example, the middle of the letter will be cut out, (this middle bit of a letter is known as a counter). To make sure your counter stays intact, use a stencil like font, or leave a small join.
