For those of you who do your own designs, we are now offering a laser cutting service where we cut out your design/s for you.

We can do this in two ways, we can provide the material or we can use material provided by you.

If you wish to provide your own material, please contact us in advance as we will only cut acrylic from reputable brands - to ensure the safety of ourselves and our equipment. Examples include Perspex & Greencast. We are unable to cut any material other than acrylic. 

If we provide the material, the cost of cutting is included, if you provide the material we charge a one of fee per sheet. 

Our laser bed measures 635 x 455mm - and we require a 3mm padding around the edge, so the maximum working area is 629 x 449mm. 

We also offer engraving for an additional fee. Please use the following link to add on engraving to your order.

SETTING UP YOUR FILE

Please ensure your file is a VECTOR file, see accepted formats below. The file also needs to be editable - for example simply saving a jpeg or png file as a vector file won't work. You can read more about vector files here:

https://www.coreldraw.com/en/tips/vector-images/vector-files/

Suitable supported files include:

EPS, AI, SVG, CDR & some PDF files. 

When sending over your file, please place your design/s inside 2 rectangles:

  • Rectangle 1 : Represents the size of the sheet, so needs to measure 635 x 455mm
  • Rectangle 2: Sits within the larger rectangle and measures 629 x 449mm - this represents the maximum working area. All designs must fit within this rectangle to ensure it's not cut off in an areas. 

When setting up your file, please set all CUT lines to black and FILL / COLOUR all shapes for engraving in red. 

Unfortunately we don't have time to check each file so please ensure you have double checked your file before emailing them over to us. If you have any questions though please feel free to ask.
