I have seen someone post about this and I cannot find the post…I wanted to thank them for the inspiration, because it’s downright wonderful! I was able to buy one piece at a time for $2 each and make personalized plaques for my son and his friends.
The trick is making your artwork backwards and engraving on the BACK of the tile. There is some sort of backing on the tile that interacts with the laser causing it to appear on the front of the tile in black which gives an absolutely wonderful contrast. They have different colors…white, beige, gray…and I think more are coming soon. These are GLASS tiles not stone or ceramic. They need to be clear for this to work.
I started with GF thick draftboard setting then changed the LPI to 225 and the speed to 800.
This is the best thing ever. You cannot engrave a photo on there, but you can use clipart, artwork, wording, etc. Enjoy!
