Stamps for paper bags

Produce stamps for individual packagings. Ideal for small quantities.


Preparation

Required material:

  • stamp rubber trodat, AERO+ 5mm, A4
  • stamp trodat professional 5212, 116 x 70mm
  • various paper bags

Machine used:

  • Speedy 360
  • 120 watts
  • 1,5" lens
  • Nozzle with small hole diameter
  • Aluminum cutting grid table

The stamp rubber can of course also be processed with other laser engravers of the Speedy series.


Step by Step

Step 1: Import/create laser file

Create your own design or use our free template. A tip for creating your own design: strong, not too detailed motifs and fonts are best. Avoid too fine lines - a lot of material will be removed, too thin lines can become unstable.
Find more information in our tips & tricks section: stamp engraving

Now send the job to the laser with the settings below.

Print settings:

Dimension Process mode Resolution Cut line
Professional 5212 or user-defined size 116 x 70 mm Stamp 500 dpi optimized
Halftone Shoulders Others
black-white medium optimized geometries

Step 2: Laser process of rubber 5mm

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

Insert the laser rubber Aero+ 5 mm into the machine. Make sure that it can no longer slip, as in this process the stamp rubber is vaccuumed off after each engraving pass. A fixation can be achieved by this:

  • an extraction system with good extraction performance (Atmos Duo Plus)
  • Glueing the rubber plate with adhesive tape
  • Use of an adhesive mat (available from Trotec)

Cover the remaining work surface to create vacuum

Laser engraving process - four passes:

Set the "Cut" to "Skip" in the parameter settings. Focus and position the laser, then start the first engraving pass. After engraving, vacuum well the dust on the rubber plate with a vacuum cleaner. Make sure that the rubber does not slip. Now repeat the engraving process three more times.
Note: focus again before each pass (on the new level) and vacuum the stamp plate after each pass.

Laser process - cut:

After the engraving the cut takes place. Activate "Cut CO2"" in the parameter settings and skip "Engrave CO2".

Laser parameters:

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
Black Engrave CO2 100 15 1000 ppi
Red Cut CO2 100 0.5 1000 Hz
Passes Air assist Z-offset Direction Advanced
1 on, maximum air assist - top down optimized quality
1 on - - -

Step 3: Assembly

Remove the laser rubber from the laser device and then clean it with a fine brush and water. After drying, glue the stamp plate onto the stamp.
Stamp a few times on a kitchen paper. Then the stamp is ready for use!


Inspiration

With this stamp you can individualise your packaging quickly and easily. Your logo can be applied to paper bags, carrier bags, envelopes and cartons to further increase the visibility of your business.


Alternative: depth engraving with 3 passes

As an alternative to the above-mentioned settings with four engraving passes, depth engraving can also be carried out in three passes with a resolution of 1,000 dpi, as more material is removed at higher resolutions.

However, the time required for this variant remains almost identical to the above mentioned application, as the laser needs more time for engraving with higher resolution.

Perform the laser processes as described above.
Use the following print and parameter settings for the laser process in three engraving passes.

Print settings

Dimension Process mode Resolution Cut line
Professional 5212 or user-defined size 116 x 70 mm Stamp 1000 dpi optimized
Halftone Shoulders Others
black-white medium optimized geometries

Laser parameters:

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
Black Engrave CO2 100 25 1000 ppi
Red Cut CO2 100 0.5 1000 Hz
Passes Air assist Z-offset Direction Advanced
1 on, maximum air assist - top down optimized quality
1 on - - -
