Color Fill Laser Engraved Granite Tiles

I always had a love/hate relationship with engraving on granite. I loved the quality of the product itself....so refined and elegant. Yet, I was not always happy with the engraved result. Especially with photos. They looked nice upclose but looked grainy from far away. Now? I love engraving on granite. Why? With the addition of Stone Color Fills the engraved areas come out looking great! There are five colors: white, blue, red, silver and gold.

How can you argue with these results? Compare the left to the right side. What this video on how you can make this dramatic change in 30 seconds.

Photo Engraved Maple Hearts

You will not want to miss out on our Maple Hearts. They are on sale while supplies last. They engrave - both photos and text - beautifully. And we have them on sale in time for Valentine's Day. We show our love so you can show your customers yours!

This heart had an image processed using PhotoGrav. In addition, the "text on a curved path" was created in CorelDRAW. Both skills are easy to learn.

Valentine Hearts in Mirrored Acrylic for Part Decorations

Valentines Day is just around the corner. A few years back we had a neighborhood party and the "laser engraving lady" (me) was put in charge of the decorations. These gems were such a hit people were taking them off the walls and taking them home! My inspiration as the candied conversation hearts with the cute sayings on them. I used red, pink and purple mirrored acrylic and reverse engraved it. In addition, I double-masked each sheet for a much higher quality finished product. Click on Read More to see more pics! Here is a video on reverse engraving: http://tiny.cc/mirroredacrylic and you can download my hearts DRAW file here: http://www.laserbits.com/downloads/dl/file/id/359/laseru_message_hearts.cdr

Using a Paper Mask on Rowmark (plastic sheets)

Using a mask on plastic sheets when vector cutting them will yield a much better product. Remove the protective coating from the sheet of plastic. Do not use this as a masking material as it outgasses hazardous fumes if used in the laser. Apply a paper mask (see video below). Vector cut the sheet in the first pass. Remove the mask and raster engrave in a second pass.

Doing this will avoid getting flair up and smoke residue on the sheet that can't be cleaned off.
