Laser Perforation

Holes are made in a card with the laser beam creating images, objects or numbering. The image is visible when held up to a light source. It may have a tactile feel with conical holes that are larger at the entrance than exit. Holes can either be horizontal to the card surface, creating an image looking straight thru the card or lasered at an angle, causing the image to not appear until the card is tilted to that particular angle of sight. Or both straight and angled images can be utilized to offset or match each other.

An example of this technique is the image of a bear on the California driver’s license below.
