Laser Craft Shapes is family owned buisness which operate from an industrial premises near the coast of Mablethorpe in Lincolnshire.
Our aim is to continue expanding and improving to give you the best service possible. We are the only company in the uk that has constantly invested in our company Laser Craft Shapes. We now have 6 laser machines and 2 huge cnc router machines. The main reason for this is because we do not want our crafters to be waiting for their products longer than they have to. This also shows we have not done all of this hard work for our selves, we have put the majority of the money earned back into the business and spent on new machines to give our customers a much faster and more efficient service.
We aim to send all standard items within 1-2 working days and personalised orders within 5-10 working days, although very often its a lot sooner. We are the largest stockist of wooden crafts, again this maybe concidered as 'dead money' sat on a shelf and this is why most companies cut to order. However we are different, we understand how important time scales are, the quicker we get your items to you the quicker you get the item to your customer which means they're happy and you can move on to the next one. A much more efficient reliable service than anyone else.
