Artwork used for laser engraving into various products must be in an acceptable format to ensure good quality results in the laser engraved image. Laser engraving uses a technique to burn the image into the product and thus burns each pixel, regardless of shade level found in grayscale images.
Acceptable files include TIFF, BMP, JPG EPS, or other Raster images that are 1-Bit black and white camera-ready artwork. NO Grayscale.
Artwork should be in a minimum of 300 DPI resolution.
Unacceptable files include JPG, BMP, TIFF or other low-resolution images converted to another format, even if the resolution is changed to 300 dpi. If the original image was less than 300 DPI, the conversion will not improve the image. Images from web sites are typically in 72 or 96 DPI.
If you do not have a high-resolution image or must use one from a web site, we can re-design your image for a minimum charge of $30.00.
Additional charges may apply depending on the complexity of the design work required.
DO NOT embed image files inside of Word or other documents such as spreadsheets or PDF files, instead provide the raw artwork file itself.
We may already have the artwork you wish to use on file in an acceptable format, so please don't hesitate to ask.
