Scrapbook Layouts and Scrapbook Embellishments
Lasercut Designs use "Laser Systems" to precisely cut custom Scrapbook Embellishments and Scrapbook Layout designs into various mediums from paper to plastics. Conceptually the Laser system is very similar to a high quality Printer, the Laser uses a high power light beam to create the image where the printer uses ink.Using a computer Graphics package, we convert the design to XY co-ordinates which positions the Laser precisely over the "work in process" and then the system powers the Laser to Cut the image or words from the medium, typically Paper or Cardstock.
Adjusting the Power to the laser allows it to completely cut through the medium to produce a very precise cutout image and by combining a cutting and engraving process we render the design into the medium being processed, both techniques can be achieved in 1 step.
The Scrapbook Embellishment and Scrapbook Layout examples below is that of the Layers or Cuts requird to produce the final varsion shown as the finished Scrapbook Layout. In these examples 6 Layers are used and 1 layer is placed on top of the other.
Needless to say the 6 layers create a 3 dimensional effect and the accuracy of the cuts in the layers is crutial to maintain the registration to the other layers and also to ensure that the image is exactily as designed.
