What is your main activity?
We do laser cutting as a service for the graphical and other industries
By means of a laser beam we can cut, score, engrave, etch, and punch very detailed patterns, images, and texts from paper and cardboard.
Where traditional cutting stops, laser cutting goes on; because of our ability to process, our great precision, and high flexibility in editions, the creative possibilities are endless.
The limitations of traditional die cutting belongs to the past. Give an extra dimension to your printed material!

Can you give me a quote over the phone from a discription?
Unfortunately, we can’t give quotes over the phone, as every design is unique and contains its own complexity. To receive a quote, please enter the needed data.
I do not (yet) have a vectorised or PDF file of the desired design. What do I do now?
If you have a sketch or picture of a comparable design, we can give you an indication. The design is an essential piece for the price offer however; the finer and more complicated the design, the more time it will cost our laser to cut it and of course production time influences the price. Prices given without the definitive design will thus always be an indication, the definite price can be given once the definite design is known.

Can I get a sample produced?
