Crafted Peace

Deb Bassett

The precise nature of laser engraving enables the creation of incredibly detailed items that would otherwise be nearly impossible. The extraordinary smoothness and beauty of laser engraving lends itself perfectly to creating keepsakes and commemorative items and awards. Laser engraved items can be simply a marvel to look at due to the incredible precision that can be achieved by a highly concentrated beam of light less than the width of a human hair!

A variety of materials such as wood, MDF, cork, leather, paper, cloth, and acrylic are well suited for engraving or cutting with a laser. Other materials such as glass and metal can be etched but not cut.
