laser cutting/ photo etching

I'm looking for an individual or company that offers photo etching or laser cutting for brass/aluminium sheet. Preferably in the UK but abroad could work. I've used local suppliers before but they aren't too interested in small orders. Anyone used a company or even offer this themselves? it's not a huge or complex piece, just A4 or smaller repeats of 2 parts.

Finding someone willing to "cut" metal is going to be hard, you're going to need one powerful laser. I don't even know if I can have it etched with the laser out here. Your best bet would be to look for water jet cutting, no reflection into a lens there.

If you need metal etched, laser is about the only way you can go. A straight cut will definately require a water jet, but a super powerful laser can hit through metal if you want. Remember that metal is reflective and the ore will need to be covered in tape before cut though.
