COMMON QUESTIONS REGARDING LASER CUTTING AND LASER ENGRAVING
How much is your minimum charge?
We have a minimum charge of R287.50 that applies to sampling, prototyping and one off small scale jobs.
How can I get a quote?
You may Contact us or use our Order Form
We quote by estimating the time it will take to complete your laser cutting or laser engraving jobs including all the vectoring (if required) laser cutting, laser engraving and labour. Sometimes we also need to work on your drawings and develop your idea further so it’s ready for the laser. Plus materials.
Can you give me a quote over the phone from a description?
Unfortunately we can’t give quotes over the phone for the reasons described above (so please don’t try!) You’ll need to send us data to quote from.
I don’t have a vector file yet, can you give me a rough quote?
If you are not quite ready with a vector file, but just want to get an idea of how much a project will cost (to judge the scope of a project for a client for example,) we can supply an approximate quote, but you’ll need to send us the following information:
A *2D mockup / sketch of the parts to convey visually the details of your parts. The most important thing for us is getting an idea of the detail of cutting or engraving involved since costs are calculated by estimating laser time.
You may also send over a photo or image to support your mockup if it helps convey the detail. (*Please don’t just send photographs of objects,
All mockups / scans need to include all relevant dimensions in mm.
Include the quantity you need as if sending a standard job.
Include details of the material type and thickness. If supplying your material(s) or object(s) please specify the sheet size / or object dimensions you will be sending.
The mockup can be sent in any file type that we can view, a scan of a hand sketch (JPG, GIF, TIFF, PDF), a mock-up in photoshop / illustrator, paint, etc…. it’s up to you.
Note: quotes supplied from non vector data are benchmarks guide only. They may be subject to change when final drawings are sent over to us. We reserve the right to alter quotes at any time.
