Why is there a setup fee?

It helps keep pricing level.  The more you order the better the price.  If you order 1 small part it might take 30 seconds cut or engrave but we still have the emails, design time and laser setup.  This way we can charge the true price for the part let say $0.50 and the setup fee covers our other costs.  Next time you order and it’s 1000 part we still charge you the same $0.50 but the setup fee is amortized over 1000 parts.
