Step 1

Step 1: Import design

The first stage is to create your own design or use our ready made template. We used the relief mode when laser engraving to obtain two different colours on the material in a single engraving. This saves time when processing large quantities of materials. Send the file to your laser with the recommended laser parameters, which will vary depending on your laser machine and its available laser power.

Print settings

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Relief 500 dpi none
Halftone Others
Colour Optimised geometries, inner geometries first


Use the grayscale matrix to determine the correct values for the relief mode.

Step 2: Laser cutting and engraving the leather

Put the leather onto the laser machine's bed and secure it using the tape. Make sure that the surface is as even as possible as this will allow you to achieve a consistent engraving result. Engrave and cut the design.

Step 3: Cleaning & sewing on

Remove your patch from the laser and if required, clean it using a damp cloth. Your patch can be attached to jeans, jackets, caps or other clothing items with a simple needle and thread.
