  • Islands are not always big enough our lasers to cut. If we attempt to cut an island that is too small the laser obliterates the wood leaving a void in the map and no piece to fill it.
  • If an island appears blue on your proof, the shape will be engraved in the water, but not cut out.
  • Proofs are computer generated to give you an opportunity to review the design prior to production.
  • The finished piece will look like the photos of actual products seen on our website.
