Lasers

Lasers can cut or engrave onto a flat or curved surface (drinking glass, rolling pin, etc.). They can laser lines (vector) or areas (raster). They can be used for any number of things such as architectural models, products, and art. If you need some ideas, check out our Tumblr. We also have a gallery that represents the very best of what we’ve seen made with a laser.

 

We offer laser cutting as a service, and we have a store where we sell products of our own. If you need something lasered, or if you want to sell something in our store, get in touch. We would love to talk.

How much?

We try and keep this as simple (and inexpensive) as possible. We charge $30/hr.

 

Everything is lumped into that number. If we are running a job we’ve done fifty times, we only have to charge for time on the machine. If you want to ignore the info below about how to setup your file, we just add that time to the bill. Basically, the better prepared the file is—and the easier it is to run your job, the better for your wallet.

 

When you are ready, email us, and we will reply with a price and turnaround.

 

Did we mention that every job comes with a time-lapse video of your job being cut?
