Information you need to know. (Applies to all engraving types) Company Logos, Sports Club Badges and Crests can be engraved using many of the engraving services we offer. The quality of the finished product depends on the logo artwork quality you supplied to us for engraving. A true Vector based file format is required so every point is editable or our software cannot read it. Vector image formats most suitable for engraving are EPS, CDR, or AI.
Logo artwork should be supplied in black and white (not grey). An EPS - EPS vector file is the preferred format - it provides the best quality artwork and is the least restrictive. No Shadows- Images must not have shadows and grey-scale areas. We can use high quality bitmap formats such as JPEG or TIFF.
We have PC's so can't open Mac files. Macintosh Computers will have an option for saving a file as a PC Version.
We can work from drawings, paper / fax artwork and poor quality JPEGS, - however an origination charge will be made for work on the logo, to make it into an acceptable and useable medium.
