- Wood blanks - ours were 1/8" thick alder, purchased from Colorado Heirloom
- Epilog Laser System
We used a Fusion Pro 32 80 watt:
Raster engraving – Speed: 65% // Power: 100% // DPI: 500 // Dithering Pattern: Stucki // Bottom-up engraving
Vector cutting - Speed: 25% // Power: 100% // Frequency: 10%
Step 1: Prepare the Artwork
Start by customizing your artwork as necessary.
Step 2: Determine your Parameters
Consult your owner’s manual for recommended engraving/cutting settings for your machine and wattage. Enter your settings within the dashboard, and send the job to the laser.
Step 3: Prepare your Material
Insert your wooden sheet, press Go, and let the laser go to work.
Step 4: Clean Up
Once the job has completed, wipe away any residue from the tags and let the gift-giving begin!
