HOW WE QUOTE

Quotes for all jobs are based on the estimated time and scope of the project.  Files should be created in vector format (.AI / .EPS / .DXF / .SVG / .CDR / .DWG).  For raster photo engraving please provide a high quality image (JPEG, TIFF, or PNG).   

Every job is unique and we need specific information from you before we can provide an accurate quote.  Production fees for cutting and engraving are based on machine time which vary depending on the complexity of the design and requested deadline.  We provide a discounted rate for larger orders.  Please notify us of your deadline and quantity of units so we may accurately quote your job.

 

HANDLING FEE & Machine Setup

All projects have a handling fee which includes file and machine set up.  This fee is applicable once the prototyping phase begins.  Our standard handling fee is $20. Handling fee is waived for repeat jobs.

 

DESIGN CONSULTATION & PROTOTYPE FEES

If you are unable to provide a vector file or need help with file creation we offer a design consultation service.                      Our charge is $60/hr for design and consultation.  Minimum fee $15 based on 15 minute intervals.

 

PRODUCTION FEES

Production Fees are based on time of the machine.  Rates range from 1 hour or less up to a full 40 hour standard work week. The more hours of production the lower the rate we can offer.

 

MATERIALS

Our laser machine is capable of cutting and etching fabrics, woods, papers, rubbers, leathers, plastics, acrylics and many more. We have an extensive list of vendors offering a wide variety of materials.  We will work with you to choose the proper material for your project or you may supply the material.

 

PROTOTYPING

A prototype is required to determine if any changes need to be made prior to production.  We suggest using Vibe Laser LLC stock material or placing a minimal order of the desired material.  Upon acceptance of the prototype production will begin.  A prototype fee (machine time) will be charged if the project is not pursued.  Prototypes ensure precision, accuracy and customer satisfaction.

 

TURNAROUND & DELIVERY

Depending on the complexity of each job, the turnaround & delivery time can vary from 1 day to 4 weeks once the prototype has been approved.  For larger orders a longer turnaround time may be necessary and will be communicated in the estimate. We can ship your custom laser order via USPS, FedEx/UPS, or local Currier service or you may pick up your order at our studio.  A shipping charge will be added to your order.
