Prices

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 put in a lot of 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 get back to you with a quotation or some questions.

We have a minimum job charge of £25.



Machine time

Machine costs start at £1 per minute for cutting and engraving for smaller jobs, with a sliding scale thereafter, based upon the size of your project.

As an example, a single hour's machine time would cost £45.

Day and week rates available.

Design & labour

Basic conversions are free.

Artworking and complex conversions, as well as manual preparation such as staining or painting is charged at £12.50 p/h.

Graphic Design work is £20 p/h.

Delivery

We use Royal Mail for smaller packages and UPS for larger ones to the United Kingdom (and International) on a signed-for service, with no mark-up.

If you're local, you're more than welcome to pop in and pick your pieces up too!
