How laser cutting works

A powerful laser is attached to a robotic tool that can transcribe very precise motions above a two-dimensional surface. Paper or card is laid upon the surface. The tool moves about above the surface firing the laser according to the pattern programmed into it. The laser burns cleanly through the paper in the desired pattern, leaving you with an intricate design of holes cut precisely where you wanted them.

Cost-effective laser cutting

Cost-effective laser cutting

Laser cutting is a more time-consuming process than die-cutting. For longer print runs, it might be worth reducing the complexity of your cut design and using a die-cutter. However, for shorter runs, laser-cutting may prove to be the more cost-effective option as you do not have the expense of producing the metal die.
