Laser Boys

Please be aware we do not stock materials. We do hold a limited range of the most popular products. Allow for two days for sourcing special materials.

 

Some Materials include:

Textiles

Both natural and synthetic textiles can be laser cut and etched. From custom trims to unique patterns or graphics, laser cutting creates infinite possibilities for the fashion industry and for incorporating textiles into other applications.

Mother of Pearl

Mother of pearl is one of the many organic materials we are able to cut. Custom inlays or mother of pearl elements enhance the beauty of any object.

Coated Metal Marking

Laser etching is perfect for marking coated metals. The durable corrosion resistant zinc finish applied to steel provide an excellent surface for high contrast logos and marking. Laser metal marking into stainless steel is a great alternative to conventional engraving or painting. This process provides an amazingly crisp and high contrast image. In addition to super high resolution our etched surfaces produce a flawless flat black allowing it to be highly legible. This is perfect for custom gifts, product numbering, and identification tags.

Anodized or Painted Aluminium offers an amazingly clean result when laser engraved. This type of marking is commonly used for medical devices, scientific equipment, tools, awards, jewellery, and gifts.

Please ensure that a sample is supplied for etch testing before we quote on the final product.

Skateboards

Customize your deck and engrave your favourite artwork for that burnt look.

We get many requests both domestically and internationally so here is a little more about this service:


- You must provide the blank decks, maple works the best
- You must provide the art work either in vector format or a high resolution black and white image
- Engraving times can vary between 20-75 minutes per board depending on the size of the artwork
- We can engrave the board full bleed but that doesn't always produce the best results
- We have a 3 hour minimum fee
- We will pack and ship the boards anywhere in South Africa, for all international orders you must prepay and provide all necessary shipping and Customs documents.

Send over your artwork along with desired quantities, special instructions, and your project deadline for a quote or for more information please see our Get a Quote page.

Nylon

Nylon and many other tech fabrics cut extremely well and provide the benefit of self sealing edges as the synthetic fibres melt together.

Neoprene

Neoprene or polychloroprene cuts well and used in a wide variety of applications, such as laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces (wrist, knee, etc.), electrical insulation, liquid and sheet applied elastomeric membranes or flashings, and car fan belts. Neoprene in general has good chemical stability, and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range

Polyimide

Polyimide films laser cut extremely well and make innovative design solutions possible in a range of industries including consumer electronics, solar photovoltaic and wind energy, aerospace, automotive and industrial applications.
With a high performance material reliability and durability and with a unique combination of electrical, thermal, chemical and mechanical properties these materials can withstand extreme temperature, vibration and other demanding environments

Teflon

Products made with Teflon® fluoropolymer resins cut well even though they have exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion, and stress-cracking. The mechanical toughness, electrical, and low-friction properties of Teflon® make it the preferred plastic for a host of applications and different processing techniques. Industrial uses for Teflon® fluoropolymers includes the following application areas: architectural, fabrics, automotive uses, cabling materials, food processing, pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturing, and semiconductor manufacturing.

Acrylic

Acrylic is one of our preferred and most used materials. When laser cut it produces a super clean edge with the appearance of flame polishing. We are happy to cut acrylic up to 1/4" of an inch thick with a slight kerf. Cast acrylic yields better results than extruded.

Cardboard

Cardboard, chipboard, and pressed heavy stock paper are commonly used for POP displays and packaging. Laser cutting of these materials results in precise, clean, and highly intricate cuts for prototypes and production of items too detailed for die-cutting.

Anodized Aluminium

Laser etching adds that special touch to your anodized products.

Textiles

Both natural and synthetic textiles can be laser cut and etched. From custom trims to unique patterns or graphics, laser cutting creates infinite possibilities for the fashion industry and for incorporating textiles into other applications.

Stone

We often laser etch stone, marble, granite, soap stone, and concrete for custom counter tops details, interior design, and architectural details.

Leather

Laser Etched and Cut Leather

Whether for clothing, shoes, bags or accessories beautiful detailing can be etched and/or cut onto leather and suede.

Paper

Laser cutting is perfect for paper details and results in intricate cuts that can't be achieved with conventional die cutting. With the right designs you can make amazing bespoke paper goods, custom stationary, invitations, and gifts

Wood

Custom wood cutting and engraving will make your work pop with delicate laser cut inlays, veneer patterns, and stunning etched effects.
