CNCROi.com offers a wide variety of materials and options when it comes to making custom laser cut jewelry.
As with just about every blog post on CNCROi.com, we will be using a piece of scrap to make custom laser cut jewelry, this time rings, but scaled-up because I wanted them to be easier to see both in photos and videos.
After the design is produced, white acrylic was put into our Austrian CNC laser to begin the CNC laser cutting process. Laser cutting jewelry is the same whether its acrylic in this case, or wood, or laminate or any other material, just the settings are different.
I wanted to focus on acrylic laser cut jewelry because it’s incredibly cost-effective in small (and large) production runs as they can all be the same or different, it makes no difference to our on-demand manufacturing capabilities.
For instance, each of these laser cut jewelry rings are actually different if you look closely, they each have a unique top but you can see the laser cuts them all out using the exact same process. This is a very powerful feature CNCROi.com offers you.
Why? Because it means you can easily have us produce hundreds of variations for you to showcase, if you are a jewelry designer, and not be stuck with hundreds or thousands of any one unit. See what sells, then get us to make more of those on-demand rather than become an inventory heavy business.
Inventory is a killer for any business, even for CNCROi.com, we try to keep our “left over scrap” as raw as possible, so we can use it for these blog posts and other custom customer projects. The advantage with laser cut jewelry is that the surface area is small, hence optimal use of material.
Why is inventory a burden? Because it’s a constant loss, how do you get rid of it? Well, you have SALES which means you start to reduce your margins as customers get use to waiting and not paying full price. This kills your profits and your reputation over the long-term.
Holding inventory also COSTS YOU MONEY, it’s space that could be better utilized for other uses and money sitting there doing nothing for you. Custom laser cut jewelry is no different, especially when you want to offer a WIDE SELECTION of possible products for a customer to review. This increases the chance of a sale and makes you appear “bigger” than you really are.
On-demand custom laser cut jewelry is also a prime product to have upsells when it comes to further customization. Let’s say one of your customers wants their name added to one of these things or a matching pair of bracelets and other features, it’s an easy sale and for us, an easy production for you. Just watch this video to get a feeling for what’s possible on that front.
There are honestly endless options when it comes to acrylic laser cut jewelry and the perceived value to the end customer is the same as metal and other precious metals as it has novelty attached to it, unlike silver and other materials. I’m not saying you can sell this laser cut jewelry out of acrylic at the same price as gold, but I’m willing to bet your profit margins will be higher!
At the end of the day, when you present a customer a piece of custom laser cut jewelry in a material they are not familiar with, the internal calculator regarding perceived value goes out the window and it becomes something nobody else has, so it actually makes things easier to sell at a higher profit margin.
Acrylic is flammable, as you can see from these pictures, but you see flame here because we have a very high-powered laser shooting energy down and through the acrylic (cut via melting) followed by compressed air, these will not blow-up in flames even if you put a lit cigarette onto them.
Acrylic is also quite easy to bend into shape, to make custom bracelets and even hand bags, add to that an endless assortment of colors and transparencies and you can see how valuable laser cut jewelry and accessories can quickly become to a designer coming to the market wanting something unique to show their customers.
CNCROi.com can also help you with coming-up with your designs for us to laser cut, making custom laser cut jewelry has honestly never been easier. We have top of the line equipment, designer expertise and a huge amount of custom production experience under our belt.
Not only that, but we are also material and process agnostic, meaning we could have just as easily made these laser cut jewelry rings out of wood or other materials, at any size, for any application in any shape. You want to supersize one of your custom rings to be 2 ft tall for a sign at your booth? We can make that too!
We can also make custom laser cut jewelry out of text and words just as easily as shapes and symbols. Here’s a great video showing you custom laser engraved and cut jewelry out of acrylic (could have been any material) using Chinese characters.
So as you can see, when it comes to laser cut jewelry, your design options are truly infinite in scope, which is why having us as your trusted manufacturer makes total sense. We can easily tie your growth to our production process every step of the way as you expand your customer base and brand.
Generally, we ship our acrylic jewelry with protective masking on both sides to prevent scratches during shipping and you, carrying them to customer shows and the like. Here’s an image of a custom laser cut ring from the above production with the protective mask on it and you can even see a slight scratch along the top of it.
But that was only on the protective masking, once removed, you see a vibrant white color to this laser cut jewelry. On some colors, this isn’t as apparent as others, but we keep the masking on there anyways for you to have the highest quality product to showcase to your customers.
Here’s another photo of all the rings we made in this small production run, this laser cut jewelry was a very small production run but for a designer, having physical samples to show retailers, wholesalers and customers to start drumming-up business is invaluable and CNCROi.com is here to help you every step of the way!
If you need some custom laser cut jewelry, including engraving regardless of material or production run or specs, contact CNCROi.com right now and we’ll get the ball rolling. Oh yeah, acrylic is also a wonderful material to spray paint on so you can make it look like metal AND wonderful for quick prototyping before going into full production with more expensive and exotic materials.
