Mr Beam lets you make your own leather patches, signs, bag engravings, wallets, belts, jewelry and much more!
Tips for working with leather:
- Artificial leather vs natural lather: artificial leather is much easier to work with and does not produce an unpleasant smell, as opposed to natural leather.
- Buckling: if your material starts to buckle during laser-cutting or engraving, try reducing the laser intensity or increasing the speed, to prevent the material from getting too much heat.
- To clean your finished product made from natural leather, we recommend only using a brush, no aggressive cleaning agents or water. Artificial leather can also be cleaned with a slightly wet sponge.
- Vegan laser leather: We also have vegan leather in dark and bright brown on offer in our Shop. This material is a composite material from paper and plastics, is tear-proof and even washable! (also for the washing machine) To achieve a leather look, knead the material with your hands, wash it and iron it.
