Frequently Asked Questions
Most of our clients provide their own design. An Adobe illustrator file with all of the 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.
Our laser bed is 32”x50" with a bypass.
