Laser Engraving FAQ »
We take pride in our work. Your complete satisfaction is our goal. Please read the following in order to help us provide you with the highest quality engraving at the lowest possible cost.
A typical engraving instruction might look like the following:
Presented to Charles Walking
In grateful recognition of outstanding Leadership as Production Manager
Midwest Components Company, Inc.
Thanks, John P. Doe.
From this, our graphics artists would use their experience and judgment to create a layout proof.
Once we have completed your layout we'll email you, at no extra charge, a layout proof for your approval before we engrave your plaque or acrylic award. The proof will be low-resolution and represents our understanding of how you want your layout presented.
You have the opportunity to make adjustments to the layout but we ask that you make all your changes this one time. We'll then send you a revised layout proof showing you our final layout before we engrave.
Baring typographical errors on our part we will charge you $5 for each additional layout iteration and proof.
Please review this layout carefully for spelling and typographical errors. We will not begin engraving until we receive an email from you approving the layout. Please be careful! Once we receive your approval we will begin engraving. If you make changes or find errors after this point and we've already started engraving we will have to charge you for a new plaque plate or acrylic award. Changes at this point may also delay your order.
If you order a quantity of plaques or acrylic awards with similar text (for example, only a name and title change between each award) we will normally only send you one layout proof as a representative sample.
Please note that we are not able to engrave directly from these files. We will print your file out and our graphics artists will use the printout as a guide in the layout. We will try to match your layout as closely as possible but can't guarantee an exact match. Email logo/layout to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can choose from the following 24 fonts. From our experience these all of these fonts engrave very well on both plaques and acrylics. We regret, but we are unable to substitute with other fonts.
If you are unable to send us your logo or artwork in the format and quality as described below send us what you can. We will evaluate it and let you know if we think it is usable. If it is not usable we will email you a quote on necessary artwork charges.
Email your logo to us at email@example.com after placing your order. Please send us your artwork in the following formats:
- PDF GIF file for TIFF compressed file format
- Black and white only: no grays; no colors
- High resolution: your file should be at least three times the final engraved size at 72dpi. For example, if the engraved size of your logo is 1"x1" then your GIF file should be at least 216 x 216 pixels. (216=72*1"*3). For best results your logo should have clean, sharp edges when viewed at this size.
This is how it should look at high resolution:
