If your file is either:

  • a bitmap image – jpeg, pdf word file etc. that needs converting, please choose this option to add the £10 charge for converting the file (Please note: the image needs to be of a decent quality to convert, if it is a very rough, pixelated image you will receive a very rough, bumpy edged sample!)

  • or marked up diagram (with all measurements listed) 


The price will then be:

  • from £10 for an accurate quote only, no sample (please put in “special instructions” metal thickness required for the quote) and checkout with “local pickup” selected.
  • from £14.50 for one thickness of metal, (plus options and shipping cost), from £20.50 for two thicknesses of metal, from £30.50 for all three thicknesses.

Turnaround for samples will be one week to 10 days (only available as a “Priority Despatch” with prior agreement). Once the sample and/or quote has been approved, we will add the item to the site as a password protected Custom Cut shape and send you the link and password to allow you to access and order the item (unless you elected to allow us to add the item to the site and we took you up on the offer!)

If you would be happy for us to add your shape to our site for other customers to order please tick the box, this can also make your order around 20% cheaper. However we reserve the right not to share your item if we think it wouldn’t be suitable for other customers. If your item is put onto our website it will become a stock item which will then be available to order  much more quickly than if it is a Custom Cut just for you (which will have one week-10 day turnarounds as standard, at least initially).
