With OMTech's CO2 Laser Cutter-Engravers by your side, you'll soon be venturing into realms of creativity that make even the most fantastic ideas come to life. 

Meet Your Acrylic Companions

Before diving into the vast universe of earring creation, take a moment to select your acrylic partners. Aim for sheets that are roughly 0.125 inches (3 millimeters) thick, which fit perfectly under the "laser beam" of a 40-60Wt engraver.

Your Main Tool: The Laser Cutter-Engraver

At the heart of your creative journey is the perfect tool—your laser engraver. Take, for example, our MF1220-50W and AF2440-100W models. Both are incredible hybrids of high-powered technology and user-friendly design.

Here's the cool bit. The MF1220-50W is compact yet capable, a perfect start for beginners or small-scale creators. On the other hand, if you need a powerhouse that can handle larger workflows, the AF2440-100W is the beast you're after. Think of them as your paintbrush and palette in the laser engraving pantheon. Now that you've got your tools let's dive in!

The World of Acrylic: Get Creative

The world of acrylic jewelry offers endless possibilities—transparent, translucent, or opaque. You'll find colors and finishes that will spark your imagination. Don't forget to add hooks, studs, and other accessories to complete your masterpiece.
