Laser cutting and laser engraving of leather

Laser engraving of leather

All those who have boys running around at home probably recognize the endless stream of broken pants from playing football and playing outside. It may be old-fashioned, but if we can still repair a pair of trousers using a piece of leather with a nice design, we still do this. How simple it is to apply a unique and fun design on sky or real leather with the laser cutter. With designs of the famous football clubs, our own name, we create hip and modern patches that our son likes to take to the streets again. For mother we immediately make it easy by making holes in the leather to solve the endless battle of the needle through the thick dust. Keep in mind that if you use skyler, the settings are lower than with leather, after all, a top layer of plastic remains on top of a fabric carrier. For the result, see the photos.

  1. Mr, Mrs.,

    I just started looking for a hobby leather laser machine.
    Do you have such devices and what price category can I expect?

    Thank you, Ina

    Dear Ina,

    Excuse for the slow response. Just returned from vacation. A MQ4040 LITE machine would be very suitable for this: from about 2500 EURO ex VAT.
    If we can be of service to you, I would love to hear it.
    Sincerely,
    Coen
