GUIDE TO PAPER LASER CUTTING

Paper laser cutting can be hard sometimes because of the burnt edges due to the laser beam. This may not be a consideration at times, but for some applications, it is preferable to make a clean cut. Even if laser cutters provide accuracy and precision,we want to share a few tips to keep the clean edges when laser cutting mat board or paper.

Preparing Paper Laser Cutting:

  1.  Make sure the cutting lines are not too close together, keep at least 0.01″ between each laser cut lines. Even though the laser machine has a much higher resolution than 0.01″, it is still limited by the paper or the material being laser cut, including cardstock, mat board, paper, wood, and even acrylic.
  2. Make sure the cut lines are not crossing each other
  3. Make sure the paper is flat on the table without cringes or folds
  4. Please provide your artwork in Adobe illustrator.
  5. Please make sure your artwork doesn’t have double lines.
  6. Check spacing between cuts. Please allow a minimum gap of 1.5mm between lines, so that your work doesn’t fall apart.
  7. Please allow 10mm around the border of the material so all your artwork is cut correctly. If you place it too tight around the edge, there is a chance that it might not cut correctly.
  8. Please setup your artwork to the size of your material. So when selecting art board please set the measurements to 600 x 900mm or the material size.

We hope these tips help you in preparing your design before laser cutting. For your laser cutting needs, enquire within.
