Laser Pricing Guide

  1. Lasering:- Laser cutting/etching time (dependent on material thickness and characteristics when cutting or engraving) and different material changeover times. $3.00 per minute
  2. Set up: - Setup charge per new job (includes ½ hour drawing/research allowance) $25.00 per customer job
  3. Material costs: - Material costs (plastic, plywood, acrylic, styrene, MDF, paper etc.) Various - please confirm with the order
  4. GST: - 10% of the total jobs cost is included to cover the government's GST charge they require me to pay them
  5. No Drawings Provided:- In some cases, you might not be able to draw what you want and will leave it up to me to produce laserable drawings. Prototype drawings or sketches can be provided in most formats, eg Tiff, JPEG, AI, DXF, DWG, etc. or just plain paper plans. Good clean high contrast copies are desirable. When in doubt please contact me. CDs and DVDs of large files are better. Drawing and research costs are charged at $44 for the first hour and $11 for part thereof (15-minute blocks).
  6. Special handling: - (to pick many small items out of the laser bed, not normally charged) However if you supply a material I haven't tried lasering and it requires testing to find its laser values then the handling fee is charged.
  7. Postage: - plus insurance or registration is at the buyer's expense but pickup is available too
