In laser cutting projects, we value quality precision the most – more than competitive costs, actually. That’s why we’re delighted to see how Hot Pop Factory combined both of these factors to deliver great products.

Laser cutting isn’t its only service but it’s among the most exceptional in terms of quality. Through our survey and a mini flip through the company’s portfolio, all we can say is that its team produces top-notch results – clean and smooth all the way through.

Among their biggest advantages is the ability to laser cut through almost every material out there. They do plastic, leather, paper fabrics, textiles, and of course, metal.

However, if you want to start a project using metal, you need to have a considerably “large” job. 

Knowing this, they may be more appropriate for a business mass-producing parts than solo buyers aiming for collectible pieces.

Speaking of business, we understand that time is the most important asset so we’re super pleased with their turnaround time. The standard we’re looking for is about 3 to 7 business days and they can deliver within or even less than that time frame.

We also appreciate the rush options in case you need the products ASAP. You can have output delivered within 24 to 48 hours – at a higher cost, naturally.

But even with these higher rates, their pricing is still pretty competitive and justifiable. Plus, they’re a pleasure to work with as everyone we’ve encountered was willing to go above with recommendations and assistance.

Pros

  • Large material selection
  • Flexible turnaround times
  • Competitive prices
  • Exceptional quality of laser-cut products
  • Seamless communication

Cons

  • Does not accept small jobs for metal laser cutting

I CAN Laser has been specializing in laser cutting services for more than 2 decades. And in our opinion, there is no better sign of great services than delivering consistent results over the years.

But experience isn’t just the company’s best trait – they also beat the competition in terms of production. How? Because they’re able to do one-off projects as well as mass production for large batches of orders.

What makes these processes even better is that their machines are able to do laser engraving and laser cutting at the same time. Through this setup, they’re able to chop down time, enabling them to finish projects in as fast as one day.

And since they’re ultra swift in terms of production, they’re able to offer same-day services to Toronto and other neighboring cities. Normally, it will take a week to finish production, so this rate is definitely hard to beat.

At first, we were wary about the quality of products due to this speed, but they proved us wrong. Their portfolio showed us sleek results, with a level of quality that truly captures their experience in the industry.

Even their customer service is up to par with the high-class laser cutting they deliver. That’s why we weren’t too surprised that almost half of the clients we surveyed are actually repeat customers.

If there’s one thing that we wish to improve though, it’s the convenience of sending designs and discussing them on an online platform. It’s typical for companies to accept files online now to produce a quote instantly and this company is yet to reach that. 

Pros

  • 20 years of experience
  • Wide selection of materials
  • Can do one-off orders and large batches
  • Able to engrave and laser cut at the same day
  • Same day services available
  • High-quality finished products and parts

Cons

  • Discussing the project can be difficult online

Laser cutting isn’t solely about precision cutting materials into the right shape. There are instances wherein a creative process is necessary to achieve the best designs.

This is where Fare Made leads the game. In our opinion, what sets them apart from the competition is their bigger involvement in the design process – all without taking the authority from the client.

Apart from standard laser cutting services, most of their patrons get services for design consultations as well. With this in mind, we think they’re a compelling choice for those who’ve yet to come up with functioning parts or models.

What takes these consultations to the next level is that they can be both creative and innovative. They’re not only open to designing for purely decorative materials, but they’re also involved in the design and development of prototypes.

Now, in terms of turnaround times, they’re not exceptionally fast but they do deliver within the standard time frame. We wish there are other options for rush orders though it’s also possible to negotiate the deadline with them.

And while we praise them for ideation, design, and execution, we feel a bit underwhelmed with its customer service. Don’t get us wrong – they’re easy to talk to as far as communication goes – it’s just that the response rate isn’t as fast as we’ve wanted.

Nonetheless, the results speak for themselves. If it’s high-quality products that you’re looking for plus design consultations, you might want to check them out.

Pros

  • Specializes in laser cutting services
  • Offers design consultations
  • Top-notch in-house equipment
  • Streamlined project process for clients

Cons

  • Difficult to contact at times

In most cases, laser cutting services are more designed for commercial clients. But if you’re a hobbyist who wants to see their art come to life, Toronto Laser Services may have something better in store for you.

The company’s clientele is mostly artists who want to see their work in the flesh. Through their experience with artists, we can tell that their expertise is more on the creative side rather than prototyping for manufacturers. 

Anyway, this factor is important to us because we know how valuable creative products are to their makers. So it’s a definite plus for us knowing that it’s a friendly space for artists and designers alike.

Now, in terms of quality, we can say that their work is nothing short of an art piece really, as everything meets what the clients want. 

The only issue is that they can’t get into the most intricate of details and there’s a chance that you’ll miss a few parts (they give a heads up though). Fortunately, the range of materials they can work with makes up for this minor concern.

Unlike other shops that only work with standard materials, this one works even with unconventional pieces. Think of moleskin and PVCs that some shops don’t have a machine for.

As a final note, the turnaround times are pretty impressive considering the line of laser cutting that they do. It’s not the fastest on our list but clients typically can expect the order within a week upon starting.

Pros

  • Specializes in laser cutting
  • Artist and designer-friendly
  • Experience with using unconventional materials
  • Competitive rates and turnaround time
  • Hassle-free client communication
  • Transparent pricing structure

Cons

  • Issues with customer services
  • Minor concerns on output quality

Toronto Laser Services are the absolute best! They are super knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Definite experts at what they do. I have had a few complicated projects completed to date now, and they always exceed my expectations in the results. Best laser cutting in the city for sure. Their attention to detail is incredible and they are really amazing people to work with. Will not go anywhere else. Love Toronto Laser Services! – Stephanie

The best place for laser cutting

The best place I have gone to so far to have laser cutting work done. I have used TLS mostly for small art projects to cut wood and acrylic materials. I find the the guys here to be very knowledgeable. They’ve helped me with design adjustments and test pieces to make all my projects the best they can possibly be. They also have decent rates and fast turn around times. I can’t recommend strongly enough. – A Veloso

We bet you can already tell from their name that metalworking is their major specialty. Looking at their major services, we can say that they’re a stellar choice for those engaged in the manufacturing business.

The best advantage you can expect is the precise cutting on all of the outputs. Their machines are a bit traditional but this doesn’t take away its ability to produce accurate shapes, even the most complex ones.

As a sign of efficient work, their work process is fully automated, reducing the risk for human error. Plus, this makes the cutting speed much faster which is ideal for bulk orders for commercial clients. 

However, you may find them an underwhelming choice if you want more material options. As it’s their specialty, they only laser-cut metal such as stainless steel, aluminum, and galvanized materials. 

Fortunately, this one-stop for metalworking projects has been in the business for 20 years. Additionally, its team of professionals has 35 years of combined experience.

All-in-all, this collection of expertise is one for the books if you want highly accurate results. In our opinion, they thrive in this kind of business as many past clients also attested to.

Pros

  • 20 years of metalworking experience
  • 35 years of combined experience from professional
  • Automated process for projects
  • Little to no human error in outcomes
  • Fast turnaround time
  • Specializes in laser cutting on metal

Cons

  • No other material options
