What are the requirements for the design files or artwork to be engraved?

Most of our clients provide their own design. An Adobe illustrator file will all elements/layers separate and fonts embedded/packaged is ideal . But a vector file or high res jpeg will also work. Black and white is preferred. Anything in black will be burned by the laser with any areas in white untouched.

We charge a file set up fee on all jobs to cover the time it takes to prepare your file for production.

If you do not have an existing design, we can also add your logo and text to a basic template at no additional charge.

Or if you would like us to create a unique, custom design for you, we charge a fixed cost that includes one round of revisions.

What type of wood can you engrave?

We usually recommend baltic birch because it provides a nice contrast and is reasonably priced. (And we keep it in stock - all other wood must be ordered.) Our other favorite is walnut. but we can also cut and engrave basswood, cherry, maple, and alder as shown below. We can also engrave bamboo.
