QI Laser

We have a quality CO2 Laser machine capable of vector cutting, scoring and/or engraving up to 1000mm x 700mm size.

We can cut  a variety of substrates and are building our supply of stock. If we do not stock an item it may be possible to special order it in for you.

Our Laser machine is primarily for cutting our Applique paper and associated Quilting templates and notions. We are also however expanding into gift lines, embroidery accessories, custom signage and more.

We can cut custom shapes and material for you - please email for details and quotes. Pricing depends on several factors including but not limited to:

Material used (cost of material chosen)

Laser time (the time the laser takes to process and cut the file)

setup time/artwork loading (machine setup for job requirements, artwork file changes required)


Some laser facts:

Does it burn the material?:

Depending on the speed and power of the laser, the material can get slightly burnt around the edges of the cut and design. We optimise our power settings to keep these burn marks to a minimum, however from time to time they cannot be avoided. For paper and light coloured materials the burn is more significant and can also have a burnt smell. This smell will disappear over time but if newly cut it will be evident. It is not dangerous. Some base products have higher odours than others depending on what they have been made of.
