Leather Laser Etching

Today Lou from POD and Max learned about etching with leather and prototyping to make the perfect measurement. We used a board to make sure the measurements of the laser were just right.  Of course, we prototyped the process first!

From here, we ran a test...

Once we were happy with the product and the placement of the logo...we moved to the production phase!

Leather is a very sensitive material, and can require delicate care and placement.  We followed the chart in the DigiFab but ran the etch through TWICE to get the right effect.

Here is Lou's finished product applied to the belt! A great prototyping and learning success!
