We often see and use paper products such as packaging boxes, greeting cards, invitations, and calendars with artistic design. But do you know how these paper products are produced? The paper laser cutting machine is the “master of the art” which manufactures these laser cut paper products.
Why choose the laser cutting machine for paper processing?
The paper materials are usually soft and thin, and easy to be processed. And the working principle of the laser cutting machine is to the high-energy-density laser beam to cut through paper and produces a hollow pattern. Compared with the ordinary die stamping processing method, the CNC laser cutter has incomparable superiority on laser cut paper products.
The superiority of laser cutting machine on laser cut paper
Firstly, it is non-contact processing and no direct impact on paper products. Therefore, there is no mechanical deformation for laser cut paper products.
Secondly, there is no “tool” wearing during the laser engraving and cutting process. Therefore, the loss of paper materials is small, and the defect rate of the laser paper cutting machine is extremely low.
Thirdly, the CNC laser cutter has the characteristics of high processing precision and a high degree of automation. And the machine also has high processing efficiency and is simple and convenient for operation.
Moreover, in the laser engraving process, the laser beam energy density is very high, and the processing speed is fast. The laser cutter has no or minimal impact on the non-laser irradiation parts of the paper.
During the process of the laser cut paper products, the laser cutting machine does not need any mold. It has the features of rapid shaping, and the cutting graphics can be in any shape.
The laser cutting machine belongs to a relatively new post-press processing technology. This laser paper cutting machine can mainly cut and engrave various design graphics on paperboards and other paper materials.
Characteristics of laser cut paper

How is the laser cut paper produced?
The principle of the laser paper cutting machine is to use the high energy density characteristics of the laser. The laser is generated to irradiate the surface of the paper, cut paper through, and produce a clear hollow pattern. But the traditional paper cutting process is an artistic creation performed manually with scissors, which requires many years of experience. While the laser paper cutting is performed using a laser cutting machine. Compared with traditional paper cutting, the process of manufacturing the laser engraving paper is faster, simpler, and less time-consuming. The users only need to transfer the desired graphics to the computer and can easily make the desired laser engraving paper products. With the progress of the times, people’s aesthetic standards will become higher and higher. And the demand for beauty will be stronger. The laser cut paper is just the beautiful goods created by a CNC laser cutter.

The three-dimensional architectural landscape is condensed into a tiny and exquisite paper craft through laser cutting. The themes could be world-famous historical sites and urban landmarks. It can be torn layer by layer through the buyer’s own efforts, gradually revealing the panoramic view of the building. The unique design and interactive experience of the three-dimensional architectural notepaper create a new form of regional culture.
Used for the page design of the graphic design and printing companies
The laser paper cutting machine helps graphic design and printing companies to produce laser cut paper or laser engraving paper to use in customer’s brochures. So that the readers can see the beautiful pages as soon as the cover is opened. The brochures through the processing of the laser cutter can enhance the reader’s desire to read and increase the visual aesthetic value. At the same time, it helps customers to spread the corporate image, and also plays a role in promoting the brand of graphic design companies. Many customers are willing to accept this design method by using a CNC laser cutter. The laser cutting machine is used to engrave and cut very delicate small holes and diamond-shaped graphics on the paper. Such a laser paper cutting machine fully considers the flatness after laser engraving and is also convenient for secondary printing.
Used for the production of personalized business cards
Business cards are the laser cut paper products of the integration of artistry, creativity, individuality, and diversification. In addition to elaborate graphic design and unique production techniques, business cards are more focused on expressing personal aesthetic preferences. And they also attract the attention and collection of the users with an eye-catching purpose. The proper application of laser cutting machines to make personalized business cards can make the cards more impressive. When applying the CNC laser cutter to business cards, pay attention: the laser engraving area should not be too large. If the engraving area is slightly larger, the manufacturers shall use the paper with better stiffness. Especially the color-coated paper should not be used. The virgin pulp paper should be used to avoid the white edges after laser engraving. At the same time, the paper with a basis weight exceeding 350g/m should not be used.
Applied to the product packaging industry
The laser cut paper products are mostly used in packaging, such as candies, cakes, wine, and bottle labels. And the laser paper cutting machine is also applicable for the crafts packaging. Because in many cases, the sale of goods is the “packaged sale” at first.
