MT Pockets Laser can help guide you to get the desired look and feel of the product you desire. If you have the tools to create the images, that's great. If not,we'll work with you all the way through.
For laser engraving on plaques, acrylic, or wood we can accept bitmap (.bmp), JPEG (.jpg), Graphics Interchange Format (.gif), or Tagged Image File Format (.tif or .tiff) for your images or graphics. The finished product is determined by the resolution of the file. We suggest a resolution of 300 dots per inch (DPI) or greater for images and graphics. Although we can scan photographs, better quality is obtained from digital images.
For best results, we accept Corel Draw files as vector artwork. If you are unable to supply artwork in a vector format, we can convert it for an additional fee.
If any of your artwork requires touch-up or corrective work, we can perform that as well.
Decisions to make before ordering your custom engraving project:
- What kind of image or photograph would you like to have laser engraved, cut or etched?
- What kind of material would you like to use for your engraving project?
Laser engraving can be done on wood, glass, the reverse side of a mirror, laserable plastic, acrylic, leather, black onyx, dark slate, black marble, black granite, anodized aluminum and painted metals. The CO2 laser cannot engrave into or remove metal, but there is a spray-on chemical process that will bond to some uncoated metals to create a permanent grayish-black mark. This process works best on uncoated stainless steel, but may also be used on thick aluminum as well as some types of chrome plated items. The laser can also cut through some soft materials including wood, leather, laserable plastic, acrylic, paper, mat board and some fabrics.
- What size of material would you like the image laser engraved on?
The laser will hold items no larger than 2 foot by 4 foot. The laser will engrave on flat or slightly curved surfaces - no more than .10" to .15" variance, depending on the material.
- Would you like the image on your item or would you like to order a product from our inventory?
Some standard items such as alder wood plaques, black marble tiles, black anodized aluminum plates, and glassware are kept in inventory for purchase with engraving. Some items that are not in inventory can also be ordered, but this could take from 3-14 business days to get the items into inventory, depending on the item.
