If you have ever been envious of Maplanta’s or Wooden Penguin’s beautiful work and wondered how they do it, the answer is laser cutting. You can cut/engrave wood, metal, glass, and plastic, among other materials. If you wanted durable/reusable stencils, definitely think about having some cut out of thick plastic.
