The process of laser-engraving photos involves using a special photo-engraving machine to etch the image into another material. It is possible to transform a simple digital image into a lasting memento by engraving it into marble, wood, metal, acrylic, or plastic. Anyone who wants to take their laser-engraving skills and move up into a whole new world can learn the art of laser photo engraving. OR Laser has the expertise and technology necessary to assist clients with this endeavor.
Learning about the process of laser photo engraving takes time. Most people who begin dabbling in this process need to practice to hone their skills. It's important to realize that not every photograph will lend itself ideally to the process of photo laser-engraving. An image with an extensive range of light and dark shades is the best candidate for this process. Avoid pictures that feature mainly one color or shade because the finished effect won't be optimal after engraving. It's also important to choose the resolution of the image carefully. For best results, choose 300 DPI for the resolution. Large, color images in 300 DPI will generally produce the highest-quality results.
Contrast is a major consideration when choosing the transfer material for a laser-engraved photo. Two popular materials include granite and black marble. The dark hues of both of these materials ensure vivid contrast without the need for extensive color filling. After engraving, the finished product will appear gray or white on the dark background. When choosing a material, consider where the finished product will be located. If it will be outdoors in a place where it will be subjected to moisture and temperature fluctuations, choose granite. Granite is much harder than marble, so it will withstand the elements better.

What's more, surfaces need not be perfectly flat to create a high-quality finished product. It's even possible to engrave photos on three-dimensional and circular surfaces.
