If possible include a PDF or Corel Draw file of the design/shape you would like laser-cut to assist us with your quote. Quotes are based on the amount of veneer or laminate used and the laser cutting time involved.


Professional Finish


Be it a corporate event, sports competition, school award ceremony or other special occasion, we can ensure you get the perfect award you need with a professional finish. Send us your designs or opt for our full service including design right to product completion. 



We can resin dome your creations for additional visual effect and long-lasting protection. Doming is the process of adding a clear, non-yellowing resin to your decal to make a 'dome' or bubble over it. This has a slight magnification effect, catches light better and protects your decal from weather and UV light. The end result is stunning.

These make great gifts both for staff and clients.
