All our Birch plywood is the highest quality Finnish Birch plywood with a guaranteed surface quality of AB/AB. Free from knots, patches and discolourations, we sand the surface to 320 grit for a very smooth surface perfect for laser cutting and printing. This is far supirior in strength & quality than cheper forms of Baltic ply and Lite ply. All wood used is from PEFC certified sustainable Finnish forests.
When laser cut the plywood edge is light brown in colour and clean to the touch. Please note when laser cutting we always add a protective tape on both sides that needs to be removed as soon as possible.
Optional but highly recommended protective matte lacquer ensures the surface stays stain free, as it can be easily cleaned when needed and eliminates dust and splinters from the wood surface, especially when removing the protective tape from the laser cutting process.
Laser cutting has an accuracy of 0.05mm. The laser beam has a kerf thickness of 0.3mm. This means the laser will always accuratly follow centre of the laser cutting path in your design removing 0.15mm from each side of the line.
Scribing our birch plywood will create a dark brown line approximatly 0.3mm thick.
Engraving our birch plywood will create a light brown colour approximetly 0.2mm deep. Please do refer to photos on our site showing the engraving colour on birch plywood.
Printing on plywood has very good colour repoduction accuracy, but the colours will look slightly darker due to the natural wood colour. For more accurate or brighter, more vivid colours we advise adding white ink layer under the colour. The printing surface is very hard wearing, Uv resistant and waterproof. This can be further enhanced with optional protective matte lacqure.
Printing & laser cutting alignment has an accuracy of 0.5mm, we highly advise that all printed designs have a bleed of 2mm to ensure that the print covers all of the surface of the cut parts. Please follow the file setup instructions within the file templates very carefully.
Payment via Klarna & stripe.
Orders dispatched within 5 working days. Delivery times vary depending on location, from 1-3 days.
Due to plywood being made of a natural material that has varying density it is possible some edges of the laser cut parts are darker than normal, have small hollow areas or may have small chips where the laser hasn’t cut all the way through. Acrylic plastic has a thickness tolerance of +/- 0.5mm or +/- 1mm in glitter & flake acrylic, keep this in mind when designing items that are meant to slot together or are to be used in special tolerance applications.
Our production quality standard is -5%, for example if a sheet has 80 items within it, you may receive up to 4 items that may have small defects. (Normally a client receives 100% perfect items in the majority of orders).
All products and materials are designed for interior use, they should not come in contact with chemicals or solvents as this may effect the material or printed artwork.
Produced items will arrive with a protective cover attached. This must be removed as soon as possible to not damage the material surface.
Artwork & Printing
We do not edit or modify your artwork and / or printing colours. We advise clients to always use RGB colour settings in their artwork for best results.
Wood and coloured acrylics which are not white will effect the way your printed design will appear. Normally this will make colours look slightly darker, especially compared to how they may look on a computer screen.
We advise that if you are unsure of how your artwork will look printed on your chosen material, you should request a sample before making your order. We do not edit or modify artwork before printing.
Our printing inks have achieved a sustainability GREEN GUARD Gold Certification. Low emissions for sensitive indoor applications such as schools, hospitals and hotels. We only use the highest quality certified sustainable sourced wood with M1 class low VOC emission. Our products do not have any food safety and/or child safety certificates.

We have an alignment accuracy of +/- 0.5mm, we strongly advise that for any items that have a print extending to the edge of the product, a bleed no less than 1mm is added to the artwork.
