When we got the Lazor at NYCR, Adam discovered that Moleskin’s have PVC (not good) in the leather and lazering such a thing could be harmful to your health and might even harm small puppies! (Gasp!)

I wanted to Lazer the NYTimes “T” into my notebook so I had to take an alternate route. Very simply, I just cut out a “T” on the Epilog Lazor and then pressed it in a vice between a couple of pieces of wood for 20 mins or so. Looks pretty neat if I may say so myself. “Fire the lazzzzor!”

    If you pressed into a “vice” for that length of time, did the police get you? I suspect you used a “vise” to press the material. Eh?

    Do you mean Moleskine? It’s an Italian name that does not sound like “mole skin”. Neat project. Do it justice with proper spelling.
