About Laser Latex: There
has been a recent surge in the latex fashion industry. Because
of the popularity of Lady Ga Ga, Katy Perry and other latex
fashion wearing celebrities, an industry that was formerly
relegated to the fetish community has exploded into the main
With this increase in the number of professional
and amateur latex craftspeople working all around the world,
there has also been a dramatic increase in the complexity
and creativity of latex design and tailoring work. However,
some designs remain un-completed because of the complex and
frustrating nature of cutting, shaping and gluing latex sheeting
Complex shapes needed to be painstakingly
cut by hand with rotary cutting tools, which takes hours,
and often leaves nicks and cuts in the latex that can lead
to the garment ripping apart at the seams.
Enter the computer controlled laser cutting
machine. This allows for No-Touch cutting of latex with smooth,
continuous cuts that leave zero nicks and cuts to start a
tear. Shapes that were formerly too small, complex or unwieldy
can now be made, and perfectly reproduced. From a one-off
to a 10,000 piece order - each time a shape is cut it's identical.
Unfortunately this type of cutting can only
be accomplished with expensive laser cutting technology. Our
mission at Laserlatex.com is to offer cutting and engraving
services to the community of professional latex crafers and
hobbyist latex crafters so that they do not have to bear the
tens of thousands of dollars of equipment overhead, or have
to deal with the environmental, health and safety concerns
of laser cutting latex.
While laser cutting services are common (there
is likely one in your general area) most laser cutting companies
will refuse to work with latex sheeting as it does vent toxic
fumes on vaporization, and leaves some messy residue behind
after cutting. We have dedicated substantial time and money
on researching the proper filtration systems required to safely
deal with the smelly and toxic fumes from cutting. We have
also developed methods for removal of the messy residue left
by the intense heat of cutting the latex.
As an added benefit, we also work with latex
as a design company of our own (www.kinkengineering.com).
So we understand how latex design works and how our customers
are likely to use our products. Because of this, we offer
benefits such as pre-backing overlays with low-stick transparent
plastic to allow for your design to glue down exactly in line
with how your artwork was meant to be. No more stretched or
warped edges or unsightly bubbles in overlays. No more spending
endless hours with a rotary cutter.
Have "weird" ideas? We work in
and with the fetish and fashion industry, so no request will
shock us - We are a sex positive latex cutting service.
We also share our workshop with www.sheetlatex.com
and therefore have access to dozens of colors and thickness
of latex sheeting in our warehouse. No need to send us latex
to get cut. We can ship you laser cut overlays, sheeting by
the yard and other supplies all in one order.
So you only need to create artwork, choose
color and thickness of sheeting, and give us a shout. We can
take care of the rest.
We look forward to helping you create
your next masterpiece!
