In addition to fea- turing all the impressive capabili- ties of its predecessor, the next- generation LD-300 boasts an expanded 12" x 9" workspace that allows for precision foil decoration on larger three-dimensional items, plus the ability to imprint directly onto natural leather. The LD-300's workspace makes it easy to decorate objects up to 1.9" thick with a variety of metallic and holo- graphic foils. For larger items, the bed easily can be removed, allowing the LD-300 to accommodate handbags, product packaging, and other objects up to 11.8" in size. Compared to traditional hot-foil stamping methods and laser engraving technology, the LD-300 is less complicated, cleaner and safer to use.
