How We Work
Simple – how we at Design Laser Play can help you create.
Our laser service offers a reasonably priced opportunity to support anyone who wishes to take advantage of laser technology and help them to make what they have always wanted to make. We can produce one offs, short run capabilities or mass production. We offer the chance to try out and explore innovative ways of making.
You can send us your own design files, which after we’ve checked them over, the studio can provide you with options on materials (unless you’re supplying your own), a suitable time frame for cutting/engraving and a quote.

Using your initial ideas/sketches/photographs, we can develop and create unique designs for you.
We can assist on all aspects of your project from pre-cutting advice, turnaround times, material requirements, install and pricing.
