How it Works

  1. Design Your Vision:

    • Create your own shapes, purchase designs online, or hire a designer.
    • You're limited only by your imagination!

  2. Format Your Files:

    • Use a  vector program (e.g., Adobe Illustrator, Cuttle, Inkscape).
    • Separate processes by color.
    • Ensure your design is laser-ready.
  3. Get a Quote and Make it Happen:

    • Email your design details to info@houstonacrylic.com, including size, quantity, and material.
    • Receive a quote based on material cost and laser time. Quotes can take up to 24 hours.
    • Production turnaround time is typically 3-5 business days after an invoice is paid.

What is a Laser Ready File?

A laser-ready file is crucial for a smooth process:

  • Preferably Adobe or SVG format.
  • Black lines for cutting, red lines for engraving, blue lines for scoring.
  • Ensure the design fits within a 28"x40" area. (We recommend browsing our website for the product you want to utilize and using in stock sheet sizes if possible)

Material and Laser Time Costs:

  • Consider material thickness and complexity when obtaining a quote.
  • Detailed shapes and engraving increase laser time.
  • We recommend optimizing your design for efficiency.

Design Services:

  • Send us your laser-ready file or let our team create one for you.
  • A "Design Fee" applies if no file or a non-laser-ready file is provided.

Material Cut-Down Services:

  • We offer cutting down 12"x19", 18"x24" and 24"x35" sheets for different machine beds or project needs.
  • $1.00 per sheet, maximum $10.00 charge. 
  • Simply add our "Custom Cut Fee" mentioned in the product item description
  • Custom cuttings done on Friday/Saturday.

How to Tell if Your File is Vector:

  • Vector files use mathematical formulas, not pixels.
  • Zoom in; if it stays smooth, it's vector.
  • Programs like Adobe Illustrator, Cuttle, Corel Draw, and Inscape are suitable.
  • Non-vector formats include JPG, PNG, PSD, BMP.
