Custom Designs Cutting & Engraving Service

 

If you are looking for something you don't see on our website or have a specific design in mind we now offer the facility to provide your own drawings, giving you full custom design without restrictions!

To do this is very easy, if you don't already have a computer design software then you can download Inkscape software here, it is a free software and very easy to use and learn. It is sometimes cheaper to learn the software then to get us or a designer to design something for you and you will have no future constraints.

We accept files in either .svg (Scalable Vector Graphic), .cdr (CorelDraw - Preferred), .ai Adobe Illustrator, .dxf or .dwg (AutoCad).
Inkscape gives the option to save your file in .svg so it is perfectly compatable with our software.

If you are new to computer design or been designing for a long time it is a great way to completely customise something specifically for you and let us do the cutting/engraving.

There are a few technical bits (Don't worry though if you're new to this, it's all very easy) you need to remember as when we receive your file we do not edit it in any way, so it's best to make sure your file meets the following requirements to allow us to price it accurately for you.

Vector Cutting:
Ensure all cut through lines are in RGB R:255 G:0 B:0 and 0.01mm thick
All vector marking lines (Not cut through but leaves a mark) are in RGB R:0 G:0 B:0 and 0.01mm thick
Please ensure you don't duplicate lines as this will mean longer cutting times which equals higher costs.

Raster engraving:
Any area that you want engraved is filled with colour RGB R:0 G:0 B:255 and has no outline colour

Scaling:
To ensure your file is to the exact scale you require please surround the entire image with a box of any colour and 1mm thick of the EXACT measurements 1000mm x 600mm.  
 
Then all you need to do is email the image to Admin@lasersmith.co.uk and let us know what material you want it made from. We will check the file and send you a reply usually within 24 hours with the price.


If you have any technical questions please feel free to contact us at Admin@lasersmith.co.uk or call us on 02891 246356, although we can't help with the learning of the software (that's what Google and YouTube are best for) we will help in any other way we can.


Finally, if you're convinced you don't want to design it yourself we can do if you.
We charge a minimum £10 for 15 minutes design time but this is usually enough time to design most items, even with one or two revisions it rarely costs more than £20. So although we recommend you do it yourself, or at least try too we can do it for you if required.
Please Note: We currently have a 1-2 week waiting list for our design service.

Don't forget we're on the end of the phone 02891 246356 or email admin@lasersmith.co.uk
