Leather is a very noble material, that has been decorated and transformed through the ages. Personalization with a laser has become popular, as it is easy to personalize and gives amazing results. CO2 lasers naturally give a contrasted dark marking to the leather, which emphasizes its natural long lasting beauty. As a result, the added value of the item increases and it is ready for sale. Leather laser engraving is a precise process, it enables you to create patterns that can’t be obtained with other leather personalization techniques such as embossing, carving, hot stamping, embroidery, etc.

Our Gravostyle™ software benefits from an embedded library that automatically adapts the laser settings to the material for easy usage. You can also design your patterns directly on Gravostyle™. Our lasers can also be driven by third-party software (CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, etc.).
Our CO2 laser engraver can cut up to .27in thick leather or imitation leather sheets. As the laser burns the edge of the material, there is no unravelling effect, which increases the lifetime of the item and its aesthetics. For leather cutting, we recommend using a blowing nose to keep the lens clean longer and avoid the number of cleanings needed.

Laser is the most competitive solution to personalize leather, as it does not need any physical tool, like hot stamping. It is also faster than other versatile technologies such as knife cutting or embroidery. Finally, there is no need to treat the material after cutting or engraving with a laser, it is immediately ready for its new owner.
Raw leather processed with a CO2 laser engraver is a natural burn reaction with no artificial chemical emission. Also, has no contact between the lens and the material, contrary to knife cutting, there is no wear part, so no consumable. In the case of imitation leather, we suggest it to be PVC free inside. Gravotech strongly recommends the use of its fume exhaust that benefits from High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, that will remove harmful fumes and return clean air.
