Peeling Laser-cut Parts

Many buyers’ patience has been tested by the job of picking at the protective paper coating that comes on the laser-cut parts. The biggest problem is how to get it started. Once started, it’s pretty easy to pull up if you work from one side to the other.

When you receive a laser-cut order direct from the cutter, it will usually have one side showing laser-cut paper and the other side showing a single piece of uncut paper. It is usually easiest to lay the whole sheet on a flat surface and take the uncut paper off first.

Here is a video where I just use a fingernail to get the uncut paper started. Then I use a pencil to make easy work of the rest of it.
