Step by Step

Step 1: Import/create print & laser template

Create your own design or use our template. Now send the job to the laser with the settings below.

Print settings:

Process mode: Standard
Resolution: 500dpi
Cut line: none
Halftone: Color
Others: Optimized geometries,
inner geometries first,
minimize to job size

 

 


Step 2: Laser process

Now make the parameter settings. Our suggested parameters may vary depending on the laser machine used and the available laser power.

To process the LaserLeather, use the vacuum table with honeycomb table top and the nozzle with the small hole diameter. Put the LaserLeather into the laser machine. Cover the rest of the working surface around the material to create a vacuum and achieve good exhaust performance.

Then start the engraving and cutting process.

Step 3: Assembly

After the laser process, remove all cut parts from the laser. If necessary, clean the cut parts carefully with a slightly moistened cloth.

Insert the wide band from the bottom through the first slit so that the four small holes on the band are exactly over the four holes of the pin roll.

Now thread the narrow band through the four small holes so that the band crosses over on the upper side.

Turn the pencil roll over and knot the thin tape on the back. Then shorten the ends with scissors.


Steps 4: Finalize the pencil roll

Now place the pins one after the other on the inside of the roll and pull the wide band through the slots so that the pins are fixed in the roll. Tighten the tape well, so that the pins get a good grip.

Pull the ribbon through the slit at the top edge of the pencil roll.

Finally, wrap the tape once around the outside of the roll. Fix the end by pulling it once under the tape.
