Touch of Wood offers a wide array of laser cutting products and services. The modern laser is a versatile tool capable of cutting as well as engraving a wide range of materials. We can work from your own designs to create custom pieces for your special projects.
A Vector File is needed to produce the necessary type lines for laser cutting. Vector files produce a red line with a thickness of .0005 inches which is interpreted by the laser engraving machine as a cut line. Any other color line is interpreted as an area to be engraved, not cut.
