Step 1: Design

Begin by creating your own design or use our template. Send the graphic to the laser with the following print settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500dpi None
Halftone Others
Colour Optimal geometries, inner geometries first


In order for the tree to hold well after laser cutting the base plate, simply measure the thickness of the wooden plate in advance. As a guideline, you can start with a cutting gap of approximately 0.2mm when laser cutting with a 2inch lens.
