The following parameters produce a brown engraving on the emerald sketchbook:

The Jottbook has a flexible cover that can be easily cut with a laser. We have created a tree design for our notebook. To give more stability to the fine details, we've glued a piece of paper on the inside of the cover after the laser process.
Step 1: vacuum table
Use the vacuum table and cover the surface around the workpiece to focus the vacuum suction.
Step 2: air flow shutter
If using an air flow shutter, please close it to achieve optimal suction on the table and not on the exhaust slots.

Open the design and send it to the laser.
