Tando Creative Limited, formed in August 2009, can provide a laser cutting and engraving service specifically to the Craft industry. We do our own manufacturing so all our products are British made.
Our main website is our consumer site. If you'd like to become a stockist so you can view our competitive pricing please register on the site. We only accept registrations from bona fide retailers.
We use a good selection of MDF, greyboard and white lined board for all our products.
We use 4mm and 3mm MDF for many of our 3D and larger items. It is also used as a base for some of our complete kits.
Our main board is sturdy 2250 micron greyboard (2.25mm thick). It will take all sorts of treatment including triple embossing and most types of paint...we have even used emulsion on it! It can be soaked and manipulated, torn and peeled to create stunning effects.
Our white lined board is 2mm thick and takes inks, paints, marker pens brilliantly. There is no need to pre gesso with this board. It will also withstand heat treatments such as triple embossing.
Our minis and more delicate products are cut from 1.2mm board and are light enough to use on cards, ATC'S and smaller projects. It can also take heat treatments and soaking with water for peeling and manipulating.
All our greyboard and white lined board can be used with embossing folders to produce stunning effects.
Our mask polyfilm is 350micron, much more robust than some others on the market, it is perfect for using pastes and they can be used to emboss with a Cuttlebug/Big Shot etc.
We also use 2mm Clear Acrylic for our deep set stencils and many other items.
