Laser Engraving Fabrics

A Little History About Our Engraving Services

At the heart of our company is the service that started it all over 20 years ago – laser engraving! Over those years you’d be surprised at what we’ve engraved, pretty much everything but the kitchen sink. Well, wait, actually that’s not true, we have engraved a kitchen sink (or two) over the years! Other interesting items we’ve engraved include baseball bats, canoe paddles, cheese boards, figurines, leather belts, baseball gloves, cookware, butcher blocks, chairs, small tables, toilet seats (yes, if you can believe it), cell phones, laptops, and speakers. You name it, we’ve probably seen it, and if we haven’t seen it then we encourage you to bring it in …because we love a good challenge!

How Easy Is It To Engrave Fabrics?

In a few words…it’s pretty tricky actually, it’s a relatively new idea and you REALLY have to be careful when you’re doing it. What you’re doing is burning away material, too much power in the laser and you’ll go right through, not enough power and you won’t see anything.

It also depends on the material itself – some material acts like your hair on fire (have you SEEN how much hair Dan has??), and it shrivels up like the green witch in The Wizard of Oz (I’m meeeelting!!). So, if it’s something you want to do, we recommend going with something that’s got some beef to it and isn’t too dainty. Here’s a few samples of fabric pieces that have been laser engraved or cut:
