Each sheet will have a cup between two opposite corners because it's too thin and too wide to lay flat.

- Use double sided tape to adhere the sheet to MDF or another flat substrate
- Create a frame or clamping mechanism that holds the edges down on the bed
- Use magnets if the bed of your laser cutter is steel
