MATERIALS

At The Altered State, we can supply most materials for your laser, CNC or other projects through our network of key suppliers.   We only use the best brands for our material to ensure the highest standard of quality and we never mark up our material to ensure the best value for your money.

Materials we use on a regular basis are held in stock to allow us to provide a fast turnaround.  If we don’t have it in our inventory then we can order it in for you with most standard materials being available next day.  Some clients like us to utilise their material which we do on a regular basis.  However, if the project requires laser cutting and engraving then the content of the material must be provided to ensure it is safe to use otherwise we would need to source alternatives.

Below is a list of some materials that we are able to work with.  If you do not see what you are looking for or you would like to see samples, please Contact Us to discuss your project requirements and arrange a visit.
