Laser Engraving


**First Place, LLC. does not engrave outside material other than wood and some glass. We stock a variety of materials to choose from that we do engrave.**

We can laser cut/engrave plastics, woods, rubbers, papers, and engrave metals (painted) as long as they do not contain vinyl. Depending on the material, there is usually no limit to the thinnest sheet we can cut, and the thickest sheet we can cut is typically 1/4". We stock some woods and various plastics including acrylic.
