Materials - Laser Cutting

We have a large array of laser cuttable natural materials and plastics on hand and many more are available on special request. Below are the materials we normally stock and their cost per square foot. Typically we don't reccomend cutting material more than 1/4" (6mm) thick outside of acrylic and foams. If you need something cut thicker than that, we suggest our CNC routing service.

Notes:
  • Materials noted as frosted/matte/textured are textured on one side and gloss on the other, cutting is done with the textured side up.
  • Materials noted as soft are matte on both sides and translucent.
  • Materials are mostly opaque unless otherwise noted.
  • Materials noted as translucent allow light to pass through them but are "cloudy" and can't be seen through.
  • Materials noted as transparent or fluorescent are clear and can be seen through but are tinted.
  • Fluorescent color's edges glow in light and are UV reactive.
  • Mirrored acrylic is mirrored on one side and matte gray on the other.
  • Additional colors of mirrored acrylic and iridescent acrylic are available by request and are $15 per sqft and up.
  • Black, white, and clear acrylic are stocked in 1/16", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" thicknesses and in 24"x48" and 32"x48" blanks in addition to the standard 1/8" 12"x24" blanks. Larger blanks for other colors are available on request.
  • Adhesive backing can be added to most materials for an additional $3/sqft.
  • Nominal thickness on 1/8" stock is 0.118" and nominal thickness in 1/4" stock is 0.22" +-10%.
