Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Where did the name "Mamacoke" come from?
A. Mamacoke (the "mama" sounds like the "bama" in "Alabama") is a place on the Thames River in Quaker Hill, CT where I grew up. I spent a lot of time fishing, hiking and watching trains there. I used to take the boat out there everyday to run. It was where the idea for this company was born.

Q. What is the dimensional capacity of your equipment?
A. I can process materials that are 24" wide, 18" tall and 16" thick. The thickest material I can cut through is not really known. I know I can cut materials at least 3/4" thick but this takes multiple passes and re-focusing of the lens.
Q. What do you charge for custom work?
A. I charge $35.00/hr for design/layout and $35.00/hr for processing time.
Q. If I am going to email you an image file, do you have a prefered format?
A. I use Corel Draw to convert and handle image files. I can convert most image files into a usable format. If you are sending a file in something other than a .cdr format be sure to include a reference line of known dimension so that that I can re-scale the image to the correct size. This is especially important for parts cutting operations.
Q. Can your shop handle very large orders?
A. This is a one man, occasionally one man and wife shop. We can handle large jobs to a point. Contact me for a quote and give me your desired lead time. I will be as accurate as I can with an estimated time to delivery. If the job is too big, I will let you know.
