Fabric cutting with a laser has become incredibly popular. As the laser cuts the fabric, it will sear the edge of the material, stopping the fabric from fraying on the edges.

You can also use the laser to create multiple-layer appliqués by placing multiple pieces of twill together, then kiss-cutting each laser as necessary.

From cotton, to suede, to twill, to nylon, a laser system can cut them all. Take your design from almost any graphic design software (that's right! There's no new software to learn!) and print it to the laser. In the print driver you'll select a speed and power for the material you are cutting. It's that easy!

Cutting fabric with a laser produces "sealed" seams without fraying. Multiple layers of fabric can be laser cut into designs that are impossible to achieve with traditional cutting methods. Fabric can also be laser engraved to produce unique effects.

Fabric Types

Denim, satin, silk, suede, vinyl, twill, nylon, Kevlar®, polyester and more.

Fabric, Leather and Engraving

Lasers can engrave fabric and leather, creating unique effects that add value to the items you sell. Leather can be customized with logos, text, artwork and more. Textiles such as microsuede and microfiber look exceptionally unique when laser engraved.
