Artwork Requirements For Custom Engraving and Imprints
Logo artwork to be submitted for customizing an item with laser engraving, etching, or pad imprinting should be in a vector format compatible with Adobe Illustrator.
Your vector graphic file should not contain any raster elements such as JPEG or GIF
images, raster images tend to distort and will not engrave properly.
All artwork submitted should be in solid black and white containing no
gradients or halftones. Fonts should be converted to outlines or the original font files
should be sent along with the artwork.
We recommend sending your logo artwork and any additional engraving text
already laid out in your .ai or .eps graphic file just as you would like it to
appear within the engraving area. If the item is being personalized
with a different name on each piece please submit your list of names in an Excel spreadsheet.
Preferred File Formats
Adobe Illustrator .ai file
EPS .eps file type
