- FINISHING SERVICES -
Once a project emerges from the laser, we use a variety of processes to complete the finishing touches. Our hand-finishing services give your project a beautiful and  consistent finished look that makes your design shine.

Weeding is the process of removing extra and unneeded material from the negative space of cuts. For example, a paper cutout with words requires the inside letters of the words to be poked and "weeded" out, one by one with a fine-tip tool. This process, depending on the intricacy of the design and the scale of the project, can be tedious and time-consuming. We ask that you take this additional service and time-cost into consideration when designing your project.
  
Masking Removal is the process of removing the little bits of masking tape that remain when cutting and engraving a masked project. Like weeding, Masking removal is a time-consuming process. We will evaluate your file and inform you of any costs associated with this step. 

Sanding - gives plywood a smooth and consistent surface and soft edges

Staining - We offer a variety of surface stains. Stains increase the deepness of the wood-grain and embolden the character of the wood. 

Painting - We can paint wood any color, with can and brush, or spray-paint, offering a variety of surface sheen such as metallic, glosses and glitters, chalkboard,  and hard enamel. For acrylic, we offer a painted acrylic lettering service that deposits paint into engraved areas for a contrasting effect.

Sealing - We can apply protective sealant to wood projects

Gluing - Many of our projects require gluing and assembly. We have a large selection of adhesives on hand, ranging from acrylic solvent, to epoxy and wood glue. 

Stitching - For projects that are held together by stitching, we offer hand stitching services. These types of projects typically include stitching pieces of leather or wood together.
