Set Up your Laser Cutting File

Every project starts with a digital vector file, which serves as instructions for our laser cutting machine, telling it what to cut, score, or engrave.

The best way to get a quick and accurate quote is to send us properly formatted digital artwork. If you need help setting up a file, you can send a written description or raster image, but correspondence may take a bit longer.

Maximum Sheet/Cutting Size: 4’x8′
