Tips

  • Use the 1.5 inch lens to make the detailed writings come out particularly beautiful.
  • If you use conventional paper and not a special cardboard, we suggest that you reduce the laser power.
  • The combination of the vacuum table and the honeycomb table leads to the best result.
  • Feel free to adapt the design! Be creative!
