We stock Baltic birch plywood from 1/8” to 3/8,” MDF from 1/8” to 1/2,” masonite in 1/8” and 1/4,” and 1/2” cabinet grade plywood.

Acrylic

Lasers are ideal for cutting acrylic, leaving a beautiful fire polished edge. We can handle material up to 3/8” thick and stock a variety of thicknesses in clear acrylic. A variety of colors and thickness can be special ordered.

Paper, Fabric & Stencils

Engraving and Marking

Three engravers allow us to use just the right laser for your project. From industrial metal nameplates, to acrylic signs, we can make it look beautiful. We can also engrave on plywood, hardwood, knives and anodized aluminum to name a few. Our large format engraver, one of only a couple in the US, can mark up to an area of 39”x 39” bringing your logo to life!

Programming and Design

If you don’t have a programmer at your company we can create your CAD files for you, from a simple design you sketch on paper, to a complicated industrial part. Give one of our talented designers a call and they will guide you through the process.

Recycling

Here at Smidgens we’ve always considered our impact on the environment. You can feel good knowing scrap material will be recycled in one of the following ways:

1) Wood is ground up for garden mulch or pellets for wood stoves.

2) Acrylic is melted and made into new sheets.

3) Metal scraps are recycled into new hot rolled steel, possibly for your new refrigerator or the car you are driving.

4) Bits and pieces of wood and acrylic are donated to schools, senior centers and summer camps to help inspire the next generation of artists. 

5) A creative person grabs something from our scrap pile, has a vision, and turns a piece of junk into something useful.
