Vector and raster engraving

Raster engraving is only possible in A formats.

the cutting process. However, applying a protective film is not possible when raster engraving.

Laser cut

Top – A slight darkening of the wood will appear along the score lines. This can be removed by applying a film before cutting. You can choose to add this option when you place your order. As a standard, there is a
protective film on the front of the sheet.

Edges – The edges look brownish and can rub off. This can be removed by wiping with a cloth or lightly sanding. If you sand the edges, you will be able to see the color of the board. The thicker the board, the darker the edges.

Bottom – There will be some discoloration on the bottom after the cutting process. Usually it is a honeycomb pattern, depending on the material on which it has been cut. You can opt to add a protective film to your order, which will remove most of this. For A formats, you can also choose to add a double-sided adhesive tape, enabling you to put your design up on a wall without the use of any nails and screws. Please, be aware that for heavy items you should use mounting glue instead of adhesive tape.

Forescolor can be painted, oiled or lacquered to protect the surface and edges. Avoid oils containing pure linseed.
