Welcome to Zippylaser!


We specialize in laser cutting, engraving and rotary engraving (also wine glasses or drinking glasses).

We cut or engrave most non-metal materials up to a thickness of 8mm, this includes:
wood, acrylic (Perspex), leather, cardboard, foam, laminates, glass, paper, stone, ceramics, fabric or cloth and many more.

Laser engraving vaporizes the top layer of the material that you are engraving to reveal what ever is below.  For this reason anything engraved will not necessarily show in black, instead it could just be a few shades darker (when engraving wood), or many shades darker with a deeper engraving as more power is used to do this and this burns the top layer more. 

Acrylic (plexiglass or perspex), engraves leaving a "white" layer.

Laser engraving onto glass actually causes micro-fractures in the glass and this is visible, for this reason it is not recommended to engrave very thin glass such as Crystal Champagne glasses.

We can do rotary engraving on glasses, wine glasses, stationary and many others.

Our team can assist you on the following but not limited to:

  • Wedding décor and stationary
  • Corporate Branding
  • Arts & general crafts
  • Signs
  • Engraved Business cards
  • Gifting
  • Marketing campaigns
  • Rubber stamps making

How it Works


We can supply you with the material and give you a start to finish product or you can supply the material yourself.
Supply your own logo, text and design files in black and white Vector format (.SVG, .AI, .PDF or .EPS), DXF or High resolution Jpg. If you do not have a design file we can assist with the designs. If you require lettering for cutout words it is preferred if you can supply us with a font file or a vector design file that you would like to use to streamline the process.

On our main-page there are links to opensource photo editing software (GIMP) as well as professional vector graphics editing (Inkscape), on which you can do your own designs and send it through easily.

We service the entire South Africa.

 Thank you for your business and we are looking forward to working with you!
