What it looks like: Laser-cutting is a precise method of cutting a design from a given material using a soft copy file to guide it. A really fine level of cutting detail can be achieved on a wide variety of materials. 

How it's done: Laser-cutting works when a focused laser beam is being directed at the material, which then either melts, burns, vaporizes away, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish. 

Paper pointers: Laser-cutting is essentially finely burning through a material and engraving is delicately burning into it. Markings are an inevitable part of the process but they can be minimized by floating the material during the cutting process or choosing the right materials.

Ink tips: Laser cut invitations are a beautiful style of stationery that work for any event celebration. Whether you choose to go for a sweet and subtle design or a full blown laser cut creation, your guests are sure to be impressed.

Turnaround time: It has a slightly longer turnaround time than steel die-cutting. Laser-cutting generally takes about two to three weeks.
