Laser Cutting Materials
We stock a wide variety of popular laser cutting materials as listed below. Customers are welcome to provide their own materials, we simply request that they accompany their material with an MSDS or manufacturer and material information so we can verify that they can be laser cut safely.
Here is a list of common materials we can process, for more images and examples of how these materials can be used for your project, check out our Full Materials Guide.
Our most popular material and one of the most affordable and versatile. Plywood cuts quickly with an attractive finish. The edge takes on a golden-brown look, engraving and scoring operations have a similar effect on the surface of the material. We stock Baltic Birch plywood in 1/8" and 1/4" thicknesses. We strongly recommend this species as other plywood types contain adhesives which don't cut as well in terms of speed and cut quality.
Also known by the tradename Plexiglass, acrylic is another very popular material for laser cutting. This is a rigid plastic material with a premium looking high gloss finish. Acrylic is available in many different colors and finishes which makes it great for applications like signage and displays. Laser cutting is the best way to cut this material as you end up with an extremely high quality 'flame-polished' edge inherent to the laser cutting process.

Great for use in luxury tags and accessories such as bags, wallets, scarves, labels etc. Laser cutting is a fantastic way to cut intricate designs in leather products, as well as logos and other branding for labels and tags. Leather cuts and engraves well on the laser. Since we do not stock leather normally, we can order in for volume orders, or customers can provide their own material.
Paper and Card
Very popular with stationary applications, model making and unique artwork, paper and card can be laser cut into very intricate designs that one could not possibly do by hand. Since we do not stock paper and card normally, we can order in for volume orders, or customers can provide their own material. Possibilities include thin vellums, delicate Japanese papers, millboard cardboard, and more!
Frequently used by our clients in the fashion and textile design world, we can cut your fabric patterns with fantastic speed. Intricate perforations can be cut out of your material that can not be achieved through traditional means. Most natural fibers cut very well on the laser, this provides a fast and cost effective alternative to cutting fabric by hand.
Although we do not offer metal cutting, we can engrave onto most types of metal. Stainless steel and aluminium work especially well. We can also mark on coatings such anodized finishes for a fantastic two-toned look on your product.
Natural Stone and Concrete
We offer engraving services for stone which renders beautifully, especially if your stone product has a smooth or polished surface. The engraving leaves a rougher textured finish which contrasts beautifully with the surface of most stone products.
