Engrave/cut pre painted wood

I was wondering if it is safe to cut/engrave pre painted wood? Is there a paint that is safer? I was planning on painting a board, letting it dry, applying transfer paper, and engraving. I just wanted to make sure this was safe.
Thank you.

Just looking at the collection I have on the work surface across from my GF, I have Krylon, Rust-oleum and Kilz.

I generally put down a coat of silver below any light color. Learned that trick in the 90’s.

Not dead yet. Neither is my GF.
