Machine Hire


A fun and cost effective way to make your own laser cut and engraved products.



We are now hiring out our smaller laser cutter, nicknamed Athena. She is the perfect machine for creating a whole range of products, merchandise and promotional goods. She has a cutting bed size of 500 x 700mm and can easily cut up to 9mm thick material such as acrylic, laser plywood and MDF as well as being great for detailed vector and raster engraving.


As part of your first hour we will give you a full induction on how to import your artwork and set up the machine. Our friendly technical staff will always be on hand to give you advise and help when needed. We have two price plans, one for those who are new to laser cutting and require a little more assistance and a lower rate for makers who are already familiar with laser cutting.
