Does anyone know if this is safe to laser? Thanks!

Safe? Probably.

Good idea? I dunno. Those sorts of plastics are not typically known for great laserability. I suspect it’ll melt (or worse might catch fire, but that’s really about your settings) and look janky. Be careful and have fun out there.

I’ll go low and fast! Thanks!


Cotton and Rayon are plant-derived and, likely about as safe as wood or paper to laser. I laser polyester film regularly and, it is widely-regarded as safe to laser.

I am unsure about spandex (which is a small percentage there). It’s a synthetic.

Always use good ventilation.

Note that I am just some random person on a forum, not a materials scientist.


Per wikipedia it is a polyester derivative.
