Laser Cutting Paper

Everything you need to know about laser cutting, scoring and perforating of high-quality invitations, business cards, packaging, flyers or brochures.

How you can use a laser machine in paper finishing.

A laser machine opens up unimagined possibilities in paper finishing. You can cut, engrave, score or perforate paper, cardboard or pasteboard with a laser machine. If you laser process paper or cardboard, you can produce greeting cards, book covers or gift packaging with a tangible, individual engraving. Logos, photos or patterns for personalization can be applied with a high-quality laser engraving. With laser cutting you achieve high-precision cut edges. In this way, you can produce a particularly delicate, laser-cut pattern on the end product.
