The Laser Cutter - devoted to all things laser cut and etched
Not sure how it doesn't seem to be burned, but way cool. Why are you there, indeed?
Where's that from?
Flickr. Click-the-pic and it will take you there.
just a heads up, that is most likely vinyl (PVC) laser engraving PVC/ vinyl / most faux leathers releases chlorine/phosgene gas, dioxins, and hydrochloric acid. Generally when engraving a thin plastic typical on notebooks if it turns orange/brown it's likely that the material contains PVC. I had the contents of Moleskines cover material tested by an organic chemistry lab and they concluded that the material is mostly pvc - read this post for more info : http://tinyurl.com/5mmkj3
I made the assumption that the yellow was the laser etched part and the orange was background, but maybe it is the other way around - or maybe I was right.
There is a chance that the yellow was color filled after laser etching. If you put a protective mask on the whole book before etching, then you can add color after etching. Remove the mask at the end
This probably isn't laser etched, but more likely done by a press...
