Our Ethos

We love working with our laser cutting machines! We enjoy seeing your new designs and working with you on how to best deliver an in-house or client project.

We have making stencils and laser cutting for over 20 years and have built up a very talented bunch of creatives, sales and client services advisors and our laser operators are highly skilled and experienced.

We enjoy a challenge and often are the manufacturers willing, or having the necessary skills and experience, to take on laser cutting projects that are uber large, high volume or technically and logistically testing.

Looking forward to working with you and bringing your laser cutting or stencil projects to life!

What our clients say

We were very pleased with the co-operation with Laser Cutting Services. Timely delivery, with efficient service on the way.

The [coffee stencils] were exactly what we expected, with good quality and the correct shapes.

Monica Mamilovic
Nestle Sweden

It all went extremely well considering the difficulties… This one ended up being more of a challenge than the last one but with the experience of the last phase and some really slick planning, everyone did a fantastic job.

Thanks for your support and service on this which, as always, is top quality and very hands on.

Danny Lucas

I couldn't recommend them highly enough. They saved our artwork on file and previous specifications.

This allowed a seamless reorder which arrived at two locations in two different countries within 24 hours. Outstanding service.
