what WE do

We specialize in cutting production orders for printers, small businesses and makers. You provide the vector file, we’ll laser cut it.

We also offer graphic design services, helping our clients quickly get their products into production. We handle jobs in quantities over 50 units (with the same artwork). For a fee, we can also complete prototyping and sampling work to help with your product’s development.

Laser cutting is a fabricating process that cuts through or etches on the surface of 1/4” wood panels, paper, card stock and fabrics. We can process a few other materials, but these are our primary areas of focus.

Laser cutting is the ideal process for small to medium sized production runs and prototyping.

our Story


Straight Laser opened its doors in 2013 in Toronto's Corktown District.  We launched to give businesses the freedom they needed to do small production runs in North America.

Our service allows our clients to run their businesses with more creativity, flexibility, and on shorter timelines.

Since 2013 we’ve gone online, increased our cutting capacity and added design services to help make going into production even easier.

Straight Laser has become an established business in the laser cutting field. We’ve amassed years of experience that will ensure you get the right advice to make your project successful.
