Our prices are very simple and fairly affordable!
Machine Time and Labor @ 15 min == $25.00
For smaller order and sample you do need to take in to consideration file setup and material placement time. We can do your orders by billing minutes or we can provide flat rate for your job so you don’t need to worry about production time.
Material cost is not included in machine rate, you can bring your own material or we can use what we have in stock. We are not a material supplier so either option you chose will not affect your total cost.
Speed of production depends on selected material and quality of artwork. For example we cut 1/16″ acrylic at 50mm/sec where 1/8″ plexi glass is being cut at 15mm/sec which is significantly slower there fore more expansive. You can also optimize speed of cutting by fallowing our laser file and artwork preparation guide.
For engraving: its much easier to estimate your cost as laser engraving is usually linear (line by line get engraved, same way as any ink jet printer works) . Average material is being engraved at 200mm/sec or paper products at 400mm/sec. So approximate etching time for 1 square inch (1sqi or inch^2) is 3 minutes 180 sec that comes down to $5.00 + possible setup time. Important note about engraving is that there is room for speed optimization. For example engraving 1×1″ box takes 3min while engraving 3 boxes in a row next to each other total 3 square inch still takes 3 minutes of machine time – MAGIC! Reason for that is how machine works, after engraving each part, laser head is traveling outside the part one way or another to absorb the inertia of the motors, as result adding parts on the sides does not consume extra engraving time and when engraving batch orders are placed there can be reasonably good price discounts. Downside to cost of engraving is a setup, which very often will require custom module to be build for your specific part. Avarage module fee is $100 but it is one time fee and not all orders need it.
