How to submit my company logo and personalized message?

What kind of logo/ artwork file format is accepted?
Logo artwork must be submitted in file formats that are acceptable for the graphics industry.
These include all vector file types of .pdf .cdr .eps or .ai in sharp, black and white line art.
Saving bitmaps, jpegs, or gif files with these file extensions is not acceptable. They need to be vector files.
Jpegs and .gif file formats are too low in quality for production.
However, we can generally take any file formats available black/white or color... If additional time is required to convert your file or clean up the logo artwork, $35 one time artwork charge may be applied. You will be contacted for prior approval for any additional charges. If you know your artwork or logo will need to be cleaned up, select that option.
What will the engraving/graphics look like?
Just about any award or product can be personalized with your desired logo and text. Our graphic artists will get the texts and logo you entered and position it into an esthetic manner. If you require specific font type for your message/text, please specify it on the "Additional Notes" box on the order page before checking out the order or upload your design in the options area.
How my company logo and personalized message will be engraved?
Optical Crystal and Glass products are personalized using a Sandblasting method.
Sandblasting has proven best when engraving these types of materials and requires skilled intensive labor. This engraving method provides a deeper etch and sharp engraved lines, which gives your award the best look.
Economy Glass products are lasered engraved using the most up to date Co2 laser equipment.
Due to the focal points of a laser in some cases the area of engraving must be reduced such as the curved glass pieces, if your product or designs require sandblasting an extra charge may apply. However, no charge is made without your consent.
Trophies and Awards with plates are either sublimated or laser engraved, the process will be noted in the product description.
