Step by Step

Step 1: Design

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

Print settings:

Process mode Resolution Cut line
Standard 500dpi none
Halftone Others
Ordered Dithering Optimized geometries, inner geometries first

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.

Place the belt on the aluminum grid table in your laser with the belt buckle on the right side. For an optimum engraving result, place the belt parallel to the upper edge at a distance of approx. 1 cm. Make sure that the leather is straight - the aluminum grid helps with the alignment.

Then cover the remaining working area to create a strong vacuum.

Laser parameters: 

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz

1 on +2 Top down High quality -
1 on -1 - - Accuracy

Step 3: Assembly

Remove the belt from the laser after engraving and cutting. Clean the surface of the leather with a lightly moistened cloth.


Inspiration

Leather is a natural product that can be engraved and cut very well with a laser. Even the smallest shapes - whether round or square - are optimally cut out by the laser.

  • Vary the present design according to your taste in different sizes, greyscales and engraving parameters. Depending on the color and type of leather, you will produce a variation of colored accents.
  • Use the same design on leather in different colors. The result can vary depending on the loeather color.
  • Design individual motifs, or personalize according to your preferences or requirements.
