GENERAL RULES FOR SETTING UP YOUR FILE

Laser cutting and engraving machines are extremely versatile machines. In this section you will find lots of information that will explain the many different ways that a laser can be used to create a wide variety of products.

GUIDE LINES

Because laser cutting is such a precise art the design files always need to be perfect. If you have designed the files yourself, we will always check them but if you could  use the following general guidelines, it will ensure your products will always turn out to the finest standards. For more specific guidelines visit the Laser Cutting, Laser Engraving (Raster), Laser Engraving (Vector), Photo Engraving or Metal Marking Page.
