New CNC-Design Service Boosts Competitive Advantage of Small and Mid-Sized Fabrication Shops
"We created DesignShop to help smaller shops become even more profitable than their larger competitors, despite the fact they have more employees and more expensive equipment," said Dave Ericksen, CEO of DesignShop.com.
DesignShop accomplishes this objective in two different ways: first, by offering a massive inventory of cut-ready DXF files for CNC designs on its website; and second, by providing a custom-design service that allows shops to work directly with an expert CAD designer.
"The advantages are huge for smaller shops," said Ericksen. "When they use us to start a project, they can search our inventory of cut-ready designs, which saves them a ton of time and money. Then, if they can't find the perfect design, they can work with our designers to get their orders custom-made, without having to hire additional employees."
Daniel D., the owner of a small fabrication company, said this about DesignShop's custom-design services: "After spending countless hours trying to make my design idea a reality, I realized I needed some help. The DesignShop process was very simple and fast; just four days after submitting my idea to their designer, they had a ready-to-cut design finished for me. And their customer service was top-notch."
The pricing model and sheer volume of design downloads available on DesignShop have garnered rave reviews from CNC-cutting entrepreneurs and enthusiasts alike. Susan F., the owner of a CNC plasma table, remarked, "I have searched the web extensively, and [DesignShop.com]
To help simplify design searches for customers, DesignShop classifies each CNC design in two different ways: by product type and by design theme. Product types include clocks, wall art, address signs, garden art, and others, while design themes include holidays, landscapes, sports, symbols, and more.
Customers can choose from three different DesignShop subscriptions that offer varying numbers of premium downloads, discounts on custom design work, design requests, and future eligibility for free unlimited downloads. All three subscriptions offer hundreds of free downloads and full access to customer support.
