Paper Laser Cutter DIY


The paper laser cutting machine opens up creative ideas in paper products. If you laser cut paper or cardboard, you can make dedicated invitation cards, business cards, paper stands, or gift packaging with high-precision cut edges.


Laser engraving on paper can deliver brownish burning effects, which creates a retro feeling on the paper products like business cards. Partly evaporation of paper with the suction from the exhaust fan presents a great dimensional visual effect for us. Besides paper crafts, laser engraving can be used in text and log marking and scoring to create brand value.


3. Paper Laser Perforating

Due to the fine laser beam, you can create a pixel picture composed of hollowed holes in different pitches and positions. And the hole's shape and size can be flexibly adjusted by laser setting.

Professional Laser Cutter for Crafters

Advertising and packaging industries as well as the crafts and arts consume paper-based materials (paper, paperboard, cardboard) heavily every year. With the growing demands for pattern novelty, style uniqueness of paper, laser cutting machine gradually occupies an irreplaceable position because of versatile processing methods (laser cutting, engraving & perforating in one step) and flexibility without pattern and tool limit. Plus with high efficiency and premium quality, the laser cutting machine can be seen in business production and art creation.

Paper is a really good medium to process by laser. With relatively small laser power, elegant cutting results can be achieved. MimoWork offers professional and customized laser solutions for clients in different fields.

If you are interested in paper laser cutting

Paper-based materials (paperboard, cardboard) are mainly comprised of cellulose fibers. The energy of a CO2 laser beam can be easily absorbed by the cellulose fibers. As a result, when the laser cuts completely through the surface, the paper-based materials vaporize quickly and resulting in clean cutting edges with none of the deformations.
