^ Not usually. Most times, if they are willing to cut for you, you will have to pay for it. Plus, you aren't guaranteed it will be a straight cut, or at the right measurement. Better to do it yourself. Are you just trying to get it cut so it'll fit in a vehicle? Or cut to finish specs?

Styrofoam you could just bring a straight edge with you and an exacto knife. Easy to cut. Just gotta take your time a bit to ensure nice edges, but still easy.

I cut a top out for my stand this week with a straight edge and a scalpel, easy to do, good results. After the cuts were done I used a lighter to smooth the edges out.
