ROTARY ATTACHMENT

The laser can engrave onto the surfaces of cylindrical objects using our rotary attachment. We have used the rotary attachment to engraving many curved surfaces including drink glasses, cardboard tubes, snooker balls and wooden eggs.

STENCILS

Laser cutting your stencils means you can achieve complex shapes with relative ease. You also benefit of being able to repeat your artwork once the stencil becomes unuasble.

We can also cut in a number of materials that we can pull from our comprehensive stock, just give us a call to discuss your requirements.

We created a 3 colour stencil using oiled manila paper.

PRICE GUIDE

At 4D we appreciate that every laser cutting job is unique and we offer a custom service. Send us your artwork and we can provide you with a quote. Alternatively an estimate can be supplied once we have seen a portion of your artwork.

We charge £6.40 (+VAT) per sheet for the taping up of materials with a low tack tape. This protects the surfaces from scorch-marks (on card, wood) and from 'gloom' (on acrylics). The laser team will be happy to advise if taping is necessary with your material.

Should you require help with artwork preparation we can assist: charges start at £14.50 (+VAT).
