What is the benefit
of laser cutting?
- Laser cut parts are 100% reproducable.
- No touch cutting means the latex does not stretch during
cutting, so parts can be shaped very accurately.
- Small parts are possible
- Plastic backing makes laser cut overlays easy to clean,
glue, and stick in place. All related parts of an overlay
will be aligned exactly where you want them every time.
- Speed of applying overlays is increased many fold.
- Costs are reduced considerably when you consider how LONG
it would take to cut parts by hand.
- Laser engraving is not reproducable by other means (etching
is a unique ability of laser systems)
- Laser cuts do not tear like rotarry cut parts might. All
cuts end with a very small blunt/rounded area that is the
circular focal point of the laser. This relieves the stress
that usually leads to ripping of latex where sharp cuts
the down side?
- Laser cutting is not free. For one-off work it may be
rather expensive, but if you are making multiple parts it
can end up being VERY economical.
- You do have to create some form of digital artwork for
us, or pay us to create artwork for you. So if you are not
great with computer art programs, this may cost a bit more.
- There may be some residual "burned rubber" smell
to the cut latex parts. This will go away over time.
Do you take suggestions
for pre-designed overlays?
Yes we do. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your suggestion of an overlay that we should be selling
as a stock item. We will consider it as a design we will create
and sell to the public. You will not be reimbursed
for your idea - but your idea might become a stock
item, and be available for your use, and we'll mail you a
free overlay version of it to thank you for the suggestion.
can you produce laser cut parts?
Our general turn around on laser cutting is 3-5 days from
time of order. We will let you know if we are overloaded and
will take longer. Rush production is available at a premium.
Rush shipping MUST be paid in advance. Contact us early if
you are on a deadline - don't wait until the last second.
We will not make other customers orders late to fill your
rush order, so rush production is not always available.
you ship completed projects?
We ship by Canada Post, US Postal Service, and FedEx. Depending
on the location we are shipping to, and the size of the order.
Generally delivery is 3-6 business days from shipping date
within North America. We will let you know shipping charges
when we quote on an order for custom work. For pre-prepped
designs, your shipping will be calculated by our online store
at checkout. We make sure that any package with a value over
$10 includes TRACKING, so that it will not get lost and is
insured. Shipping overseas is usually by surface and takes
A LONG TIME (5 - 10 weeks depending on location - Australia
is a long long way away from us!)
I make "ANYTHING" I want? (even... um... naughty
Yes. We run Kink Engineering, so we make kinky things for
kinky people all the time. You will not shock us with your
request. We do reserve the right to refuse any work that we
do not feel comfortable with, but we will do so in a respectful
way. We do draw the line with the following: No child exploitation.
no hate. No copyrighted material. No knockoffs of other designers.
competitor to Kink Engineering... can I still order from you?
Yes. We welcome your business as a laserlatex.com customer,
and we welcome competition from other companies in the latex
fetish design world. As long as you are not specifically knocking
off our designs, we feel that more people making wonderful
things is GOOD for companies, customers and the universe in
