Step One: Design
Download a premade template or create your own artwork. Adjust it to fit on the size and shape of your handles. (Image 1) Once you have modified the artwork, insert the material into the laser. (Image 2) If you’re concerned about the placement, you can draw a vector box around your design and run the machine with the red dot pointer on and lid open to ensure your engraving and cutting lines line up correctly.
Step Two: Engraving
Using a 60-watt laser, send the job to the laser using the following parameters. (Image 3)
