State Of Laserply 2023

Announcing updates and exciting developments for Laser Cutters and Engravers!

Welcome to Plyco's 2023 update on all things Laserply! We've got a whole forest of news to share with our loyal laser cutting, engraving, and pyrography customers, so let's dive right in and get "sawing"!


  • Basswood Laserply - available late May (AUS) and late July (NZ)

  • Craft Packs - free shipping on orders over $200 (AUS ex NT & TAS) and $150 (NZ)

  • Birch Plywood - resupply of 3mm in late May (AUS and NZ)

  • Wholesale Laserply - coming July 2023 for select retailers (NZ)

  • New Stock - late May resupply of Samples, Poplar, Birch, and Radiata Craft Packs (NZ)


Basswood Laserply

We're thrilled to announce that starting in late May, Basswood Laserply will finally be available to laser-cutting connoisseurs!

For Australian customers, whether you're in the market for single sheets or six-sheet Craft Packs, we've got you covered. Basswood Laserply will be available in single sheets as 600 x 300mm (2mm, 3mm, 6mm) and 920 x 920mm (2mm, 3mm, 6mm). Craft packs will be available in 300 x 300mm (2mm, 3mm, 6mm), 600 x 300mm (2mm, 3mm, 6mm)

And for our Kiwi friends, during the second half of 2023, Basswood Laserply will be making its way to New Zealand in Laserply Craft Packs. These will be available in 600 x 300 x 3mm, rounding out our existing product offering in the same dimensions.


Free Shipping On Craft Packs

With budgets feeling the squeeze lately, Plyco's offering of free shipping for eligible Craft Pack orders is a "ply-some" deal for our craft-loving customers. For Australian customers (excluding NT and TAS), Craft Pack orders over $200 will receive free shipping nationwide. And for our New Zealand customers, due to demand, Plyco's promotional offer of free shipping on all orders over $150 will be extended until August 1st!

With these savings, you'll have no trouble "sawing" your way through the costs!


Birch Plywood Resupply

The war in Ukraine has left the global supply of Birch Plywood in turmoil over the past year, but fear not, Plyco is "branching out" to ensure the availability of this much sought-after product. We're expecting a full resupply of our 3mm thicknesses by June for both Australian and New Zealand customers. So keep an eye on your email!


Wholesale Laserply Craft Packs

For the first time, Plyco is extending its roots and offering wholesale products to select laser cutting and engraving machine retailers in New Zealand. Packs of 24 sheets will be available in our most popular veneers: Basswood, Birch, Poplar, and Radiata. All sheets will be a consistent 3mm thickness, with sheet sizes to be confirmed.

If you're either a retailer of laser cutting and engraving machines or a crafts supplier and your company is based in New Zealand, apply to our wholesale program. The quality of products and dollar savings will very much make it worth your while.


New Zealand Sample Packs

Keep your eyes peeled, Kiwi customers! A limited run of Sample Packs is coming your way in the last week of May 2023. Featuring a mix of complementary and paid samples, the last time we offered Sample Packs, they vanished faster than a tree in a lumberyard—gone in just 5 minutes! So make sure you're keeping an eye on your email to snag these elusive packs.

That wraps up our 2023 State of Laserply update! We're excited to see how you'll create amazing projects with Plyco's ever-expanding range of Laserply products. Keep on cutting, engraving, and pyrographing, and remember—there's no limit to what you can achieve with a bit of creativity and some quality plywood!
