We decorated two Leuchtturm1917® notebooks with a Speedy 400. The emerald sketchbook was enhanced with a contrasting engraving. The smaller notebook has a flexible cover that was laser cut to reveal a colored second layer.

The sketchbook was refined with a fine engraving and personalized with a name. Open the PDF design and enter your chosen name. As always, you can also use your own design.
The following settings make a brown engraving on the emerald sketchbook:
Engraving: Power: 20% - Speed: 30% - Frequency: 500ppi - Air Assist: ON - Z-Offset: -1mm
Other colors may react differently.
The Jottbook has a flexible cover that can be easily cut with a laser. We have created a tree design for our notebook. To give more stability to the fine details, we've glued a piece of paper on the inside of the cover after the laser process.
Use the Aluminum Cutting Grid Table and cover the surface around the workpiece to focus the vacuum suction.
2: Air Flow Shutter
If using an air flow shutter, please close it to achieve optimal suction on the table and not on the exhaust slots.
3: Laser Process
Open the design and send it to the laser.
