Step One: Prepare Artwork
Download the graphics from the link above and import it into your graphics software. Make adjustments as necessary.
Step Two: Send to the Laser
Send the job to the laser with the correct parameters for your machine wattage.
Step Three: Decoration
Paint or stain wooden cake toppers however you'd like. If you'd prefer a more natural look, you can skip this step. If you're using colored or textured acrylic, there is no need for painting/staining. Once you've decorated the toppers to your liking, you're all set. Just add them to your cakes and cupcakes and let the party begin!
