Hello has anyone tried etching a logo on a jewelry box. I have paper jewelry boxes I’d like to see if I can etch my logo on them. I’m unsure how to do etching and I don’t want to burn the boxes. I only had my glowforge for a few days. And unsure of the settings I would use. They are standard boxes. Paper/ cardboard.
I think it’s doable. You would probably want to just do the lid, which should fit under the head as long as it is less than about 0.45" high. Do a forum search on engraving cardboard, that should get you started. And you will need to measure the exact height and put that into the Material Height field.
One thing to realize is that you can redo the operation with precision as long as you don’t shift the material or the graphic in the GFUI between operations. So just start with 1000 speed and 10% power and see how it looks. Then redo it with more power if you want.
