Try things that we might not have tried before, as long as we don't think they'll destroy the machine or kill us (!).
Prices are complex things in our line on the one hand we discount for more time on the machine, on the other we often have to work to convert files or develop a client's ideas. Then there are materials, setup and handling, all of which we recognise as being as important to your work as the lasering process itself.
Put really simply you can drop us a line, outlining what you want (please include your designs, material specification & any quantities), and we'll try to get back to you within a day with a quotation or some questions.
We have a minimum job charge of £25.
Machine costs start at £1 per minute for cutting and engraving, with discounts up to 75%, based upon job size.
As an example, a two-hour job would be charged at £45 per hour machine-time.
