Personalizing your wedding has gone high-tech with laser cut signs, backdrops, toppers and more! All right, maybe not as high-tech as the amazing 3D printing trend that we featured here. But this technique using a laser cutting machine can create free-standing “cut out” lettering, monograms, numbers and figures such as birds, hearts, even your state map out of a variety of materials. These lovely examples we’re featuring simulate the look of hand calligraphy, creating a graceful classic look or a playful whimsical effect. But you may also request for custom fonts, including your own handwriting!
