Our studio and workshop is here to help you from design to production and finishing of your project. Talk to us about your ideas, or email us some information and reference on your project and we can advise you on the best way forward. Alternatively, set up a meeting and we can talk face-to-face about your ideas over a good cup of coffee.
Paper & Card Stock:
Most papers and cardboard stocks cut well. There is some burn on various stocks and printed paper with full ink coverage. We try to minimize the burn if and where possible depending on individual client needs.
MDF, Plywoods & Natural Woods:
We cut Plywoods, Softwoods and Novalite MDF (recycled wood fiber) from 3mm - 9mm in thickness. We engrave on most types of MDF, Plywoods, veneered boards, Natural Woods, Bamboo and even railway sleepers. Please check with us on the best way to prepare your material before engraving. The laser burn effect or residue can left or cleaned and sanded depending on your needs.
Acrylics, Plexiglass & Perspex:
We cut and engrave on most acrylics from 3mm - 9mm in thickness. Talk to us about the colours and options available. Or visit the studio to make your selection from our colour swatches.
