Gravotech - Leather and imitation engraving

Leather and fake leather laser engraving

Easily engrave and personalise leather and synthetic leather items with Gravotech dedicated laser solutions. Suitable for in-store and e-commerce applications.

Leather is a very noble material, that has always been decorated and transformed through the ages. Nowadays, personalization with a laser is very popular, as it is easy to personalize and the result is immediately nice. CO2 lasers naturally give a contrasted dark marking to the leather, which emphasizes its natural beauty and lasts for a long time. As a result, the added value of the item increases and it is directly ready for sale. Leather laser engraving is a very 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.

Gravotech offers solutions for cutting and engraving leather for both raw or treated leather (Suede leather, Nubuck, napped leather) and similar textiles such as leatherette, Alcantara and other imitation leathers. Personalization of Fashion accessories: wallet, bracelets, bags, belts, patches, shoes Prototyping of leather clothes & accessories Promotional items Arts & Crafts: interior decoration, scrapbooking, photo frame, personal items, etc.

Why choose laser for leather personalisation

Leather bracelet engraving and cutting

Our CO2 laser engraver can cut up to 7mm 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 necessary.

Laser is the most competitive solution to personalise leather items, as it does not need any physical tool, like hot stamping. It also is 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 directly ready for its new owner.

Raw leather processed with a CO2 laser engraver is a natural burn reaction with no artificial chemical emanation. Moreover, as there is 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, make sure that it is PVC free inside. Then, 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.
