Laser cutters can be used to cut a variety of materials for purposes ranging from the artistic to the professional. Laser cut the pieces yourself or take them into a laser shop and have the material cut for you. Prices depend on the material and the complexity of your designs. A set-up charge may be applied for custom work but many laser companies use stock of images and fonts which may be an economical choice.


Use your laser cutter to create unusual designs for greeting cards, wedding invitations and art projects. The laser removes the negative space from your images, leaving a clear crisp image behind. One idea for a greeting card is to create an image in silhouette --- for instance, a patch of trees against the backdrop of a moon. Laser cut the image and paste it to a blank card of a different colour to allow the negative space to show through. Other ideas that work well are damask and paisley designs, floral and geometric designs. Another idea for the laser cutter is to create stencils from card stock. Design fonts and images and laser cut them to be used in craft projects.


Laser cut wood for a variety of projects, including arts and crafts, interior design and art. One idea is to laser cut and engrave small medallions of wood to create jewellery. Make pendants, earrings and rings using the laser. Other ideas include Christmas ornaments, business cards, panels for windows, doors and cabinets. To add interest and privacy to an entryway window, laser cut a design into wood and install it over the window. The laser can also be used to cut decorative pieces of wood for things like furniture. Chair backs and table tops can be created with innovative designs in modern or traditional styles.


One idea is to create a light box acrylic sign using laser-cut pieces. Use the light box for a logo, seasonal decoration or special event. Use laser-cut letters to create signs. Or laser cut the letters of a child's name and affix them to the wall of the child's room.
