We DON'T Cut metal or work with vinyl-based materials such as PVC or leatherette. Nor do we mark or etch into high-value items like laptops or very expensive Louis Vuitton luggage (we know sacrilege!)
We DO Try things that we might not have tried before, as long as we don't think we'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 ...and then there are material considerations.
Put really simply you can drop us a line, outlining what you're interested in (designs, materials, quantities), and we'll try to get back to you within a day with a quotation or some questions.
Machine costs start at £1 per minute, for both cutting and engraving, with discounts based on job size.
Depending upon scale of job, this can amount to a discount of up to 50% on machine time
We offer varying rates depending upon the type of work required.
£25 per hour for design development & artworking and £12.50 per hour for manual detailing or preparation of pieces and works.
Please note: We have a minimum job charge of £25
