Images are used as visuals to show only a few types of materials that a CO2 laser can engrave, etch, or cut. If you have a unique material or would like a laser cut sample feel free and call us for that request.

TIPS AND TRICKS FOR LASER ETCHING GLASS

  • Glass etching with a laser is an art. Due to varying glass types TEST different glass types w/ various speeds and power settings.
  • Applying a moist PAPER TOWEL over the glass engraving area will help mitigate chipping and give you a smooth, frosted appearance.
  • Alternative to the above you can apply a thin layer of DISH SOAP to the target area and laser etch with the glass surface still wet.
  • When laser etching mirrors laser etch the reverse side of the mirror using the inverse of the file image. It will appear correct in the mirror.
  • The best way to etch glass that has a consistent curve such as a glass or bottle you can use a roller or chuck ROTARY attachment.
  • For photo engraving glass PhotoGRAV is a laser software Boss offers ideal for processing photos on any material - especially glass.
