When it comes to quality and quantity laser engraving and precision cutting, QAQ are no strangers. Our highly skilled team of engineers and designers have many years of experience with both the products and the machinery and have refined the process in order to deliver the most stunning pixel-perfect laser engraving solution.

We can provide laser engraving (also known as Etching) for areas of up to W= 2000 mm x H = 3000 mm.





Engraving/ Cutting Materials:

Advantages of Laser Engraving:


·       The laser uses a beam of light as the engraving tool; no part of the machinery actually touches the material being engraved.

·       Laser engraving or etching produces a permanent, crisp, highly detailed mark, engraving images at up to 1200 dots per inch.

·       The engraving quality is unmatched for reproducing graphics.

·       Our system provides an extremely fast way to customize products, by creating a jig to hold products in place we can engrave multiple pieces at once.



Whether you are looking to engrave on a wood-based material or plastic, you can trust QAQ to deliver amazing results.

Named after the Northern Territory city of Darwin here in Australia, QAQ's laser cut decorative screen pattern 'Darwin' features intersecting and overlapping circles of even-width lines with hexagonal centre circles.  It is a beautifully harmonious pattern that would work well with either a classic or modern interior or exterior decorating asthetic. 

This pattern has a 50% privacy and sun block-out rating, making it a suitable choice for when you want just a bit of privacy or shade, or simply to delininate a room with beautiful and striking style.

QAQ manufactures a number of circular patterned screens, some of which we have previously spotlighted here on our blog, including the minimalist 'Capri' pattern, exotic 'Budapest', and the elegant 'Valencia' pattern. 

'Darwin' has a classic, uncomplicated simplicity about it that has made it a popular choice for our customers. Shown here are some of our favourite installations of this design. 

Above: For our platinum retail distributor, Living Effects, a 'Darwin' wall of 600mm x 1200mm screens cut in smooth-grain compressed hardwood were painted in a russet red and featured as part of an 'Autumnal' display room.  This room features two inverse patterns of our 'Autumn' design in the 'rusty metal' corten. 

At the chic bohemian boutique, Camilla's, at Melbourne's stunning Emporium Mall, a large 'Darwin' screen painted white creates texture on a plain white wall. Next to it is our 'Istanbul' design. 

In a more unusual installation, 'Darwin' screens were placed over mirrored recesses in a modern bathroom.

Lastly, in one of the easiest and most popular methods of enjoying laser cut decorative screens, a compressed hardwood 'Darwin' screen hangs as decorative art on an outdoor patio wall. Standoffs were used to hold the screen a few centimetres off the wall, giving it a more sculptural, three-dimensional quality. Learn how to hang a decorative screen on a wall in our full tutorial here.
