Laser Engraving on clear Acrylic leaves the engraved area translucent, almost a frosted finish. However, Laser Cutting leaves a clean clear cut.
Laserable Plastics are usually two or more layers of different colors and textures, for example the Brushed Gold with Black backing. Others have a clear front and a colored background. Those will be engraved from the reverse side, and the engraving can be filled with any color - have a look at the No Smoking sign.

Laser Engraving on glass results in a frosted finish and is often referred to as glass etching. However, this is not really the case as no chemicals are used to etch the glass.

The contrast achieved by Laser Engraving wood depends on the kind of wood.

Engraving on Leather should not be confused with embossing. The frame on the 'Leather Journal' (above) was already embossed, we only added the text. The top of the surface burns away leaving a darker shade. The outcome of color-dyed leather depends how deep the dye penetrated and the original color of the leather.
Clearly, for any Faux or Imitation Leather, the outcome depends on the material underneath the surface.

Metal

Our CO2 Laser will not engrave into metal. The Laser will vaporize any paint/coating exposing the metal underneath.

Laser engraving Anodized Aluminum will basically turn the anodizing to an almost white finish. Engraving on dark anodizing will give higher contrast than eg on silver anodizing.

For bare metals, a Metal Marking solution can be applied to the engraveable area to mark the metal with a chemically resistant coating.

We engraved the top of the Backcountry Boiler TM for Devin Montgomery. These pictures don't really do justice to this 'compact chimney kettle', therefore visit www.theboilerwerks.com for more details.     (Watch Devin's video clip.)

We achieved excellent results on 'brushed' stainless steel with LMM6000, but not the case for bare aluminum. Experiments with LMM14 showed promising results for bare aluminum.
