Step 3: Post-processing

Pull the decorative ribbon through the two laser-cut holes and put the engraved sign into a homemade or bought frame. Now fix the money on the ribbon. To finish this sample, decorate the frame as you like using your laser engraver or any other way.


Inspirations

  • If you use a frame made from laserable material (e.g. wood, anodized aluminum) you can put a nice design on the frame as well.
  • Use dark TroGlass instead of TroLase Metallic. The fiber laser of Speedy flexx creates great effects.
  • This sample can also be used for other occasions like birthdays, weddings, and any other holidays.
