Sending us your Art

The better the input artwork, the better the output marking!

We accept most any types of artwork, however some will get you better results, and really low quality images will require make ready fees to clean up. Follow these guidelines to help your customized items look great!

ACCEPTED FORMATS (listed in order of preference/quality)
Vector Art (eps, ai, cdr, ps, fh, pdf)
Illustrator, CorelDraw, Freehand, PDF's
• Black and White High Resolution Camera Ready art
• Raster images (tiff, jpg, png 300 dpi)
• Layouts (Word, Excel, PowerPoint - only for layout guidance, not for logos. Send logos seperate in addition to your layout files)
• Low quality raster images (gif, jpg, fuzzy, grainy, tiny may require make ready fee)

PHOTOGRAPHS
• Should be in as large a file as you have. Photos look best when there is a quite background (or no background) and less noise behind the object you want to laser
(see examples http://www.lazerdesigns.com/custom-laser-photo-gallery.html)

CLIPART
• All our clipart is vector based, just send us the red code below the thumbnail to use on your item. View clipart gallery here. Have your own clipart? Just email it to us in as big crisp and clear a file as you have, or ideally, vector art.

Fees: For camera ready artwork, there is no artwork fee. Camera ready artwork is considered a logo in 300dpi black and white tiff or EPS/AI/CDR files only. Images taken off websites are generally not camera ready.

We have a Clipart Gallery available with over 7,000 images for you to choose from. Just mention the name in the Special Instructions field when ordering. There is no charge when using these images. (copy the red text under image & include with your order or email it to us)

DEFAULTS
If no artwork or font is chosen or sent in, we will DEFAULT the engraving to Arial Font and no logo. If there is no engraving info, we will send items blank.

SENDING US YOUR ART
Please send us your art immediately after you place your order to art@lazerdesigns.com and include your ORDER # in the Subject Line of email. Or, reply to the order confirmation you will receive and attach your logo.

We need high quality, camera ready, high resolution or vector based artwork to ensure crisp and high quality lasering. We can clean-up and touch-up your art if it needs minor changes, however this can add to production time. We will always contact you before we charge you for Art Make Ready Fees.

Wondering if your art will work? Just email it to us and let us know what you want to laser it on, and we'll tell you how it will work.

FONTS
See our available Fonts. Your font not there? Just include the name of the font you want, chances are we have it. If not, we'll let you know or you can embed the font in a vector based file (eps, ai, cdr, pdf) and email that to us.

How can you tell if your logo will laser well?

Remember: The better the input artwork, the better the output engraving!
