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 type
EPS .eps file type
