Step 2: Adjust the Laser Processing Settings
Send the job to your laser by using the processing parameters described below. NOTE: The optimal cutting and engraving parameters may vary depending on your Specific Speedy system and its available wattage.
Step 3: Cut and Engrave the Pink/White TroLase Sheet
Remove the protective foil from the Pink/White TroLase sheet, and place it on your laser's work area. Cover the remaining space (e.g., with standard printing paper) to maximize the vacuum's suction force on the TroLase sheet. Then proceed to cut and engrave the material. When the job is complete, wipe away any remaining residue with a slightly damp cloth.
Step 4: Prepare the Checkered Strip Design
To add a little extra pizzazz to our menu cover, we added a checkered strip made from TroLase Thine Black/White. To achieve the same look, you may also use our template (below). Send the checkered strip file to your laser using the print settings below.
Step 5: Cut and Engrave the Checkered Strip
Put the Black/White TroLase Thins sheet on your laser's work area, and remove the protective foil. To achieve the best results, be sure to run the engraving job (from bottom to top) before cutting.
Step 6: Assemble the Menu
Once the checkered strip is processed, clean it with a slightly damp cloth. Once both the menu card and the checkered strip are dry, remove the sticker from the strip to expose its adhesive backing. Carefully position the strip on the photo-engraved menu cover. Finally, combine the front cover, menu pages and back cover, and secure them with a binding ring or screw post. Voilà! You are now ready to present your menu.
