The laser cutter does not run hot enough to cut through metal, glass or stone but can etch on them quite well. Metals need to have a powder coating so that when it is burned off, the metal is exposed and produces a printed effect. We cut plastics material only when guaranteed they do not contain PVC, as this substance when heated produces hydrochloric acid.
Our work is charged by the hour ($50) and as such, each project is unique one from the other. That is why we quote each order individually. Many factors go into the pricing, but a good rule of thumb is: the larger the laser etched area, the higher the price. Having said this, we must stress that cutting and scoring (about as thick as a hairline 0.001pts) are far cheaper than etching (any line thicker than 0.1pts)
