If you want to add color to your design, mask off any color-free areas and apply the paint. Make sure to let it dry before engraving.. We painted a portion of our coasters yellow and then engraved over the color (see below.)

Send to the Laser

Next, run a vector outline around your coaster design (remember to have the red dot pointer on and leave the lid open) to ensure your placement is where you want. Once you’re satisfied, send the job to the laser and press go!
