Type of slate coasters to use?

I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the slate coasters I’ve seen engraved with the glowforge. Where is the best place to buy ? I found some on Amazon but I don’t know if any will work or only a certain style ? Any help would be amazing :slight_smile:

Mostly, slate is slate. You can make it have slightly “better” results if the slate is sealed/treated before you engrave. you can buy them pre-sealed (they’ll look shiny) or you can buy them raw and do it yourself with mineral oil or shellac, both easily obtained.



Here’s an oiled slate project I did:

Have fun!


Pretty much slate is slate is slate. Buy from pretty much anywhere and you should be ok.


Wonderful ! Thank you so much
