We’re always looking for excuses to play with lasers, and laser engraving is a great place to start. The basics of the process are easy to understand – laser engraving is the process of carving a design into an object using a concentrated beam of energy. The laser acts like a knife does when you whittle something but is much more precise since it’s guided by a machine instead of human hands. It also produces much less waste because of its precision.
Both of these properties make laser engraving ideal for transferring photos to another surface. You don’t lose the important details that make photos the perfect records of your best moments with laser engraving. Plus, you have a huge variety of materials to choose from, including plastics, wood, glass, stone, and metals, which makes the process a popular way to create art and jewelry.
