With these laser-cut laptop stickers, you can make your computer even more personal!
Do you like your things unique and personalized? Eliza from ZMorph sure does, that’s why she decided to design and manufacture a set of unique laptop stickers for herself, her friends and everybody who downloads the attached source files.
Using a graphic design software Eliza drew six designs including a cockeyed spider, sweet cat, Batman sign, and ZMorph logo. She later used a ZMorph 2.0 SX multitool 3D printer mounted with a laser toolhead to make them.

Step 1: Unpack the Source Files
The pack that we provide includes 6 designs for laser-cut laptop stickers that can be attached on various types of computers and electronic equipment.
We sized them to fit all Apple MacBooks but you can easily resize them for your purposes.
The package contains two types of files:
- G-codes are ready for laser-cutting, you just need to send them to your multitool 3D printer or laser cutting machine
- DXF files allow you to make more advanced modifications in the design

Step 2: Laser-cut a Sticker and Personalize Your Computer
Stickers have different shapes and it would cost a lot to print just one copy of each. Laser-cutting in a black PVC sticky foil is a quick and efficient alternative. You can also use other types of sticky foil.
(UPDATE: Please note that laser cutting in PVC may result in toxic fumes, so please be careful and follow recommended safety measures, like keeping the machine in a well-ventilated room and putting a protective mask along with protective goggles recommended for all kinds of laser-cutting works)
Laser-cutting a single sticker on ZMorph 2.0 SX multitool 3D printer took us only a few minutes. The laser beam didn’t leave any burnt material (make sure to use black or dark foil - it's easier for the laser to cut through it!).
We were also able to use and reuse various scraps of the PVC foil because the machine doesn’t require a standardized sheet of material to work.
Good luck and check out the making of the laser-cut laptop stickers on our blog.
