Lazer cutting service?

I need a small badge cut out of 5mm acrylic (or 3mm, doesn't matter too much). Does any one know of a place that will do this without me having to sell a kidney?

It's very simple really, shouldn't take long.

It will depend upon your location.

Serving North America: I have used the two following services and do recommend them:
  • eMachine Shop Might need half a kidney, but offer extensive services not just cutting.
  • Big Blue Saw You should be able to keep your kidneys, offers laser and water cutting services.

If you can wait a little while, there are University students who could do it for you in their labs most likely!

Have you checked to see if there's a laser-equipped hackspace/makerspace near you?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackerspace

There are hackspaces (or hackerspaces) all over the world. My nearest is Leeds Hackspace, which has a laser cutter for member's use. You can either join, get trained on the laser cutter (which is a quick thing basically telling you not to be on fire), and then use it for a small time-based fee, or you can ask an existing member with training nicely to do it for you. Most hackspaces have free open days or evenings, so it costs you nowt to go and see. The facilities available vary greatly, but most larger hackspaces will have laser cutters, 3D printers, pillar drills and the like. Some may even have CNC mills or plasma cutters.

EDIT: In fact, here's Leeds Hackspace's laser cutter in action. Took that shot a couple of years ago for a feature I wrote for Custom PC.

Thanks Gareth. I will weigh up my options later, once all of the spade work has been done

I've got 3mm in various colours (not 100% sure what colours though) if you want to send over what it is you need cutting, I'll see if I can get it cut next week for you.

I'll second that Hackerspace recommendation. I joined one a few weeks ago and so far I've done my 3d printing induction and have laser cutting booked for this Friday.

It's a great place with lots of interesting people (both hobbyists and entrepreneurs) making lots of cool and clever stuff. I thought I might be bored waiting for my designs to print but not a chance, there's always something interesting going on.
