Artwork for a standard design to be engraved onto glass, metal or plastic badges should be supplied to us as a high definition black/white image, cdr, svg, pdf, ai, eps, jpeg or tif such as the one shown here wherever possible. Vector files (svg, ai, eps, pdf, cdr) generally get the best result. Bear in mind that without the right software you might not be able to view these files but we can, and they give us the best chance of a crisp, clean engraving of your logo. Please note that the black areas are engraved and the white areas are unengraved. Minimum preferred image size is 200 kB or 300 dpi. No shades of grey and no copying and pasting from web sites! For preference, images should be supplied in an RGB palette (otherwise we have to convert it). We use Coreldraw X7 here to produce the artwork. If what you provide is unsatisfactory we may need to charge a fee for artwork. As a guide try zooming in on your image before you send it to us. If it is fuzzy edged then it will not be sharp enough to engrave. A word file can be sent to us as a visual aid to your design but not as finished artwork please. Any fine lines should be given a hairline outline if possible to enable them to engrave clearly.
When your artwork is ready please use the button that says 'click here to upload your logo'. This can be found under the options with each product and should appear when you select an engraving option that includes a logo. This will bring up a popup box where you can fill in your details and upload your logo to us. Alternatively you can email it to us at the address shown under the button. Please do not send logos on a word document as we cannot extract them cleanly.
