Laser engraving, cutting and marking  have been used in industrial settings for decades. However, in recent years, smaller, more affordable laser cutting machines have been invented, opening it up to small business owners and keen entrepreneurs. In some cases, you use the laser cutter to cut all the way through a material, but it’s more frequently used to add designs, finishing touches and personalized flourishes to gifts, trophies and keepsakes.


Laser technology is used in a broad range of fields, such as optical storage, military and defense, medical devices, heat treatment, automotive and aerospace. You don’t need to be a fine art graduate to use these machines, either. They work using 2D images that are created using a computer and inputted to the machine digitally. Personalized laser designs are easy to create, and the personalized engraving machine is simple to use.


There are a few different types of engraving you can use to personalize the perfect gifts for your clients:


  • Laser engraving: In this instance, the laser cuts through the surface of the material, resulting in a cavity shaped according to the customer’s chosen design. You can feel and see laser engravings, which gives gifts a pleasant tactile element as well as an appealing aesthetic. The maximum depth of an engraving is usually around 0.02 inches — going any deeper could result in excessive burn or warping.

  • Laser marking: In laser marking, a low-powered laser beam interacts with specialty paint on the surface of a material to create a superficial design. In this instance, the surface of the material remains smooth, but the design is clearly visible to the eye. 

  • Laser etching: Laser etching is a delicate process, with the laser only producing enough heat to create a superficial mark on the surface of your chosen material. The etched area melts and expands, which results in a raised finish with enhanced contrast. Laser etching never goes deeper than 0.001 inch into the material, making it perfect for work with plated metals, polymers and ceramics.    


Websites like let entrepreneurs sell their designs to captive audiences around the world, but it’s easier than ever to set up your own e-commerce website. If you opt for the latter, you get to keep all the

revenue, whereas the website will take a cut if you opt for an online marketplace. Just keep in mind that does the marketing for you, while you’ll have to promote yourself if you go down the full DIY route. 

You can add bespoke designs to single products or set the laser cutting machine up to do large batches. With a bit of practice, you’ll be able to add graphics, names, logos, quotes and everything in between to any material that’s compatible with your laser engraver.


Eligible Materials for Custom Engraving 

You can only make a great gift using the right material. Some substrates work better than others when it comes to etching, marking and engraving,

so always check your manufacturer manual before commencing a task. You’ll need to adjust the laser’s settings according to which material you use,

but there are plenty to choose from:

  • Stone such as slate, marble, granite, worry stones and much more can be laser engraved.

  • Glass comes in handy for a variety of uses, from monogrammed glassware to hygienic cutting boards.

  • Plastic can be used for name tags and key chains, as well as phone cases, acrylic business cards and signage.

  • Metal usually needs to be coated with a substance that allows you to etch the surface to let you create personalized spoons, stainless steel cocktail mugs and calling cards.

  • There are many different types of wood you can laser etch to create customized picture frames, wine boxes, gift boxes, ornaments and baby blocks.

  • Leather works well with a laser cutter, but it requires practice to create personalized passport holders, wallets, dog collars, bracelets and book covers.

  • Jewelry is, of course, one of the most popular items for personalization.

  • You can even engrave photographs onto glass, stone, metal, plastic and wood.

    I am a beginner at CNC, I’ve never used a CNC machine before and with in a day I was carving. An awesome machine for a beginner to learn as hobbyists. I used the manual and the help video. One hour to assemble and test, very friendly and easy to use. It’s a good buy for the money. I would definitely recommend this machine to someone getting into CNCs.
