what WE do

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

We also offer graphic design services, helping our clients more 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 aid in product development.

Laser cutting is a specialized fabricating process focused on cutting and etching 1/4” wood panels, paper, cardstock and fabrics. We can process a few other materials, but these are our main areas of focus.

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

Carrie Hayes started Straight Laser out of a passionate for design and manufacturing.  

She began her career in fashion manufacturing.  Her self-titled work has been featured in Elle, FASHION, Flare, the National Post and the Toronto Star.  She has designed and assisted in the manufacture of apparel products for large manufacturers, national retailers and her own clothing line.

Upon the sale her apparel business, Carrie switched gears to launch Straight Laser. She wanted to make manufacturing capabilities accessible to businesses tired of offshore hassles - those who were searching for easier and more immediate manufacturing options.

Since launching, she's grown Straight Laser into one of the most capable and specialized businesses in the field. In addition to the behind-the-scenes cutting work, Carrie has successfully pushed laser cutting into the mainstream with Wedding Bells, WedLuxe and Rock N' Roll Bride all featuring Straight Laser’s work.
