TAO offers Laser machines to CUT AND ETCH on most fabrics.
The etching is a fantastic alternative to embroidery, especially in the promotional arena. It may be applied over seams and positioning is not an issue.
Laser etches on thick piled fabrics such as Polar fleece and micro-fibre
create unique 3D effect impossible to achieve through any other process.
The Laser can also cut / etch into tougher fabrics if necessary, including leather, denims, heavy twills etc.
We use our laser in combination with other process, but it is an irreplaceable feature of our embroidery plant when it comes to complicated raw edge appliqués.
