Creative Laser Engraving:
Creative Laser brings you precision laser engraving, marking and cutting. The Studio22 team offers this service directly from the store or via online submissions. We are able to produce complete products from design to manufacture, work from your existing design or engraving on your existing items. For colour printing, on almost anything, visit our UV Printing page. To compliment our creative services from graphic design, photo books, fine art printing and labels & stickers, our high-resolution European laser system is ready to deliver.
Artwork for engraving: requirements
Artwork can be supplied or one of our design team can quote on your requirements. We are able to work from Jpegs, but some addtional artwork might be required. Below is the designers requirements.
* VECTOR FILES: – EPS (Encapsulated Postscript), AI (Adobe Illustrator) text CONVERTED to outlines.
– Corel Draw – CDR – lines drawing with text CONVERTED to curves/paths.
– PDF may be submitted if the artwork was created in vector format, all fonts converted to Curves or outlines before saving to PDF format.
* Some Jpegs – JPEG, PNG’ as long as they are over 300, 450, 600dpi – lower resolution than this usually produces unacceptable results.
* Black and white graphics – No Gray Scale/shading – no shaded colours or shades of grey.
* Artworks / Logos that are entirely in one solid darker colour, e.g. red or blue, may be useable.
FYI – We can import the following formats: DXF & SVG or any other format that can be imported into illustrator. Laser cutting or engraving is a completely different process than printing, therefore, our artwork requirements are completely different.
