To create an exceptional product, we ask you to send us the best quality image files you have. This means that all images or logos should be sent in a clean black & white or color vector format. Our preferred format is always an .eps or .ai file.
We offer the option of converting raster images to vector artwork, when providing the vector format is not a possibility. A charge of $35 would be applied to your total invoice for the conversion.
Art & Logo Requirements:
- Vector line art
- Adobe Illustrator or Illustrator compatible (eps, ai, pdf, cdr)
- Include all art in one file if possible.
- Send your text and personalization as an attachment on a word document, or if you have a list of names, please include them on a spreadsheet on an excel document.
- All personalization should be sent as text, never outlines or a picture of them so that we can copy and paste with ease, minimizing the risk of misspellings.
- We will re-typeset all text that is sent as outlines, for you to proof read and approve.
We recomend you to stay away from curly, broken, eroded or ones that by default have the enclosures too small to come out clear at the moment of engraving. Please contact our customer service team for more infortmation about the requirements.
