Try This: Laser Engrave Doormats

David Stevens is the Industrial Applications Manager at Trotec Laser. 

Use your laser to customize conventional doormats. Create fun designs or personalize them to make unique gifts.

Material required:

  • Single-color doormat

Machine used:

  • Speedy 400, 120 watts
  • 4" lens
  • Vacuum table

For this sample, you can use any machine of the Speedy laser engraver series, or an equivalent from another manufacturer. Just be certain you are using a doormat that will fit in your bed size.

Tip: Due to the coarse structure of the doormat, we used a lens with long focal length to compensate the unevenness of the material.

Tip: You can use a lower resolution to reduce production time. Since a doormat is typically viewed from the distance, the resolution does not need to be as high.

Laser Parameters: Engraving

Tip: Since a doormat is typically viewed from the distance, a resolution of 333 DPI is sufficient.
