For a variety of reasons, laser marking or engraving leather is extremely popular. Raw leather sheets and prefabricated leather items are relatively inexpensive, incredibly durable, and have a high perceived value, especially when laser-marked for a specific customer. Combining an EM-Smart Laser with this adaptable substrate can open the door to many profitable applications and opportunities, ranging from fashion accessories to promotional items and everything in between.
Get started with leather marking
Leather is a generic term that refers to any type of hide (skin), whether natural (of animal origin) or synthetic (man-made). If at all possible, utilize synthetic materials for laser marking or engraving leather. Not only is this morally responsible, but because to the constant nature of a man-made product vs a genuine animal hide, it is frequently easier to accomplish with a more predictable result.
Primary types of leather
There are a multitude of different colours, thickness and types of leather. Leather can be plain in finish, embossed with patterns or even retaining fur or hair:
Full-grain leather - highest quality
Top grain leather - second highest quality
Corrected grain (bottom/cut split leather)
Bonded leather - lowest quality
