Custom Laser Engraving
ATTENTION: The Custom Shop Opening Back Up June 1st!
The minimum order quantity for custom laser engraved and laser cut orders will be ten pieces. If you have ordered with us before, and we have the design saved, you can order the part without a minimum order quantity.
For the Custom Amp Builder
As a custom amp builder, you need the ability to integrate branding and custom features into your product
line while maintaining a clean, professional design. Whether you specialize in putting your spin on a classic,
or have designed something from the ground up, we can assist you with your custom engraving needs.
Need an old faceplate reproduced? As long as you can send the original for reference, we can return a

You can have a clean, professional look to almost any application. Below are just a few examples.
The design will be engraved in reverse on the bottom or back side of the material. It will be visible in the correct
orientation on the front. The engraving can be filled with black or white paint. The result is a smooth front with
no engraving impression. All of our reverse-engrave material provides a gloss finish.
The design will be engraved on the top or front side of the material. The process will leave an engraving impression
on the front down into a sub-layer which dictates the design color. This type will yield better contrast between the
design and background over the reverse-engrave material.
- Prices are based upon the size and complexity of the design.
- Price breaks are offered for large quantity runs.
- A drawing with dimensional information is required.
- A setup fee is required for custom work.*
*This is a one-time per design fee that will be determined after the receipt of the drawing. Hand-drawn submissions will generally require a higher setup fee.

Since quotes are based on size and complexity, a good starting point is
knowing the hole layout and overall size of the piece. The best way to show
this is with a drawing that includes measurements of distances between
hole centers and the left side and bottom of the piece, hole diameters, and
overall piece size. Take a look at the example below:
Accurate dimensional information is needed most. If you are good with a
CAD program, and can provide the labeling and design information in an
exploded format, then that's good because the setup fee will be less.
Exploded format is one with all shapes including letter characters outlined.
Even better, if you can provide a 1:1 scale drawing in a .dwg or .dxf file
format with all of the exploded design information, you will save most on
the setup fee. If you don't want to deal with the tedium of laying out the
actual design, that's ok, we can do it for you, just let us know what goes
where. We'll send a proof in .pdf format that you will approve before the
final piece is produced.
If you need a quote for a logo, we will need to know its overall size. Most
importantly, we will need a drawing that includes vector line information,
and if this is not possible, then the original file may work as long as it is
not in a .jpg or .jpeg file format. We can, as a last resort, use a jpeg image file, but the quality of the resulting product will be compromised. Only high resolution or large .jpg will be accepted. Below is an example of what you may see in a proof of a logo:
Unless our custom work is damaged during shipment, or if it does not reflect an agreed upon design, we cannot accept returns for custom work. We can guarantee high quality work based on our customers' instructions and information they provide. We can guarantee that the customer has been well informed of what they will receive. Beyond that we have no control over whether the part works for its intended purpose. If the reason for the return is that the customer is not happy with it, we still cannot accept the return.
On the other side, it is for this reason that we are required to accurately communicate what it is we intend to provide as well as how we intend to do it. This includes clear proofs of design, clear descriptions of materials used, and a clear breakdown of the cost and timeline to produce the work. If we fail here, and the customer wants a return/refund, then we can grant it. One example of failure on our part would be when we produce a faceplate that has some missing element of the agreed upon design. This can be due to a machine glitch or an error in formatting the drawing file before it goes to the machine. However, if a customer requests a certain material thinking of some other material, and our correspondence shows that we have clearly explained what they are getting, then we cannot accept the return after the customer finds that the part is not what they expected.
