How quickly will I receive my parts?
For in-stock materials, we generally ship parts within 3 business days of receiving your cut-ready files. If there are any issues with your order, we’ll contact you right away. Our cut-off time for processing new orders is 12 noon, Pacific time. Orders received after noon will be started the following business day.
Although we cannot speed up our manufacturing process, overnight shipping is available for some orders. Contact us for more information - email@example.com
What's the largest single part that you can cut? How big are your machines?
Our raw material is typically sourced in sheets 48" x 120" overall, which gives us a yield for single parts up to 46" x 117". Maximum size for freight/shipping is 46" x 110". Freight shipping will be quoted at actual cost.
What's the thickest material you stock?
- Mild steel: .500" (1/2")
- Stainless Steel: .500" (1/2")
- Aluminum: .500" (1/2")
- Brass: .125" (1/4")
- Copper: .125" (1/4")
- Titanium: .125" (1/4")
What filetype or file format can I send you?
To receive an automated quote, we accept Adobe Illustrator (.ai), vector-based .eps files, and .DXF files. For custom quotes, we accept most vector-based file types including .PDF, .STP/.STEP, and .SVG. We do not accept .STL mesh-based files, raster files, or photographs.
How do I setup my file for cutting?
Check out our Design Guidelines page for more information on setting up your files for laser cutting.
Will there be scratches on my parts?
Possibly. Due to our manufacturing process, some cosmetic defects and scratches may be present on your part, especially on the bottom side that contacts the laser bed. Thick aluminum (>.250") may have a slight burr on the bottom edge. Contact us about finishing options such as ceramic tumbling, brushing/graining or Linear Ultra Finish.
If I send you some metal, can you cut it for me?
Not at this time. However, if you feel that a particular material would be popular, please let us know so that we can consider stocking it. firstname.lastname@example.org

Do you offer bending, powder coating, painting or welding?
We now offer CNC bending for some materials and designs. Please review our bending guidelines here. For powder coating, anodizing, or welding, we highly recommend using a local provider once you receive the parts from us.
Do you offer laser etching or laser engraving?
Yes, but we strictly enforce artwork types and a minimum of 50 or more units. Check out our Etching/Engraving page for more information.
