Step by Step

Step 1: Preparing the cutting file

Download the template file for the phone case. Open it in your preferred graphics software and edit the initials to those of the person the phone pocket is for.


Step 2: Laser cutting the leather

Send the graphic file to the laser software with the parameters recommended below. Please note that the parameters may vary depending on the machine you are using and the laser power available.
