    If they are small and shippable, why not just outsorce the whole project? If they are big and would need to be sent via truck, then shipping will kill you.

    I get substrate delivered to me for no additional charge (when I order over $100). I cut sign panels using an assortment of saws, knives, and routers. I do not have a CNC router (I do not do enough volume to justify the purchase). If I was doing that kind of volume, I would buy one - shipping sign blanks is too expensive!

    For small volume check out a shaper origin. For around $6000 you can cut practically anything.

    I was looking at that router, do you know anyone that has it? One thing that worries me is that they list cutting files as (paraphrasing) " Preloaded shapes, download from their site,
    or design on the router" I don't care for any of those options, do you know if you can you design on a computer and transfer?

    I was looking at this router as well: https://www.yetitool.com/

    Both are viable options. there is someone on here if you search who did a review. I know there is a dxf side loader for the Origin so you can use your normal design tools and get it on to the machine.
