Set Up your Laser Cutting File
Every project starts with a digital vector file, which serves as instructions for our laser cutting machine, telling it what to cut, score, or engrave.
The best way to get a quick and accurate quote is to send us properly formatted digital artwork. If you need help setting up a file, you can send a written description or raster image, but correspondence may take a bit longer.

Pricing and Turnaround Time
- As low as $50/hour for high volume projects.
- Professional Design Services
Variable pricing starting at $90/ hour, down to $50/ hour for large quantity orders.We accept card, cash, or check.
Typically, we can turn around projects in 2-3 business days. However, we do also do weekend projects and can turn around in under 24 hours if needed.
Laser cutting is charged by the amount of laser cutting time needed to complete a job. Here are a few rules of thumb regarding pricing for laser cutting jobs:
- Complex designs take longer to cut than simple designs.
- Straight lines cut faster than curved lines.
- Thicker materials take longer to cut through.
The best way to get a quote is to send us your artwork and tell us a short description. Don’t have a vector file for laser cutting? Contact us here.
