Laser Cut & Laser Engraved Wood and Wood Veneer



Wood is a very popular material to laser engrave and cut for a variety of reasons. 

Laser cut wood and engraved wood offers many possible opportunities from fashion items to promotional products and various items in between.  It is a very popular way to personalise products and a great way to produce a logo or design on wood.

At The Altered State we can guide you through the process.  We are able to cut and engrave a large number of wooden objects so we can customise items such as hand bags, wallets & purses, belts, guitar straps and even shoes.  Or we can make a new item such as tags for clothing.

You do not need to be a brand or a business to benefit from our service.  We will happily cut and/or engrave a wooden product for you too.  Whether you have your own or need us to supply one, we can help you.

Laser Engraving Wood

The process of engraving wood with a laser is contact free and results in a debossed effect.  The laser removes the surface material to produce a noticeable, clean contrast that creates an amazing tactile effect.  

Wood that is light in colour will produce a high colour contrast when engraved compared to a darker wood engraving which will be more subtle. 

If you wish a high colour contrast, go with a oak, birch, birch plywood, cherry, bamboo, etc.  Walnut will still give a beautiful engraving but the contrast will not be as strong.

Engraved wooden products are a great way to customise or a give a special finish to your chosen product whether that be with a name, a brand name, a logo or other design to achieve a high quality finish.  

Make every piece unique.  Make it your way!

Laser Cutting Wood

Laser cutting wood is the perfect way to create your chosen wooden product.

There are a variety of benefits to using a laser to cut wood.  The laser seals the cut edges so there is no splintering resulting in a perfectly smooth finished edge.   Also cutting wood with a laser is incredibly fast, precise, allows complex cuts and is consistent making it perfect for large runs, repeat orders or one offs.

When using the laser to cut wood, there is no contact so no wear and tear.
