Supplying Laser Ready Artwork

This part is actually far easier than you might think, the details are below but we can help you though any of the complicated steps. For us it’s good to know what material you plan to use for your project. You can achieve different results and push designs depending on how intricate the design is, the same design may cut differently if we are laser cutting paper compared to laser cutting acrylic for instance. We will work with you to get the design right for laser cutting, this also helps us give you an accurate quotation. Once happy we can supply laser cut prototypes in the correct material so you can approve the final design. The artwork is the same whether you are laser cutting paper, laser cutting wood or laser cutting plastic.
