Laser engraved cushion cover

IKEA cushion cover + laser engraving = custom sofa decoration

Add more value to a GURLI IKEA cushion cover with an individualized laser engraving and create a unique sofa decoration. 


Required material:

  • Cushion cover GURLI from IKEA in any colour
    • Darker materials show off the engraving better

Used Trotec Laser:

  • Speedy 400
  • 80 watts
  • 2 inch lens

Step by Step

Step 1: Design it!

Open the PDF template in CorelDraw or any other vector graphic program and adapt it as you like. Of course, you can use any pattern, text or graphic—let your imagination run wild!

Step 2: Laser process

Put the cover without the filling material into the laser. A vacuum table helps you fix the material in place, but you can also use some tape to secure it to the bed. To keep the cushion cover flat for engraving, you can iron it before you put it into the laser engraving machine. This will also help to focus the laser.

Laser Settings

  • Engraving: Power: 30% - Speed: 100% - Frequency: 500ppi - Air Assist: ON

Wash the cushion cover once before filling it to remove any residue that might be left on the cover.


This also works great with photos of friends, family or pets using the Photo Optimization settings in Job Control®.
